Busch Gardens Bomb Threat

Busch Gardens was the scene of a bomb threat Sunday.

James City County authorities say a note was found around 3:30 yesterday afternoon, indicating that there was a bomb either in the England section of the theme park or in the England parking lot.

Busch Gardens issued a statement saying that the park was shut down out of caution, but was re-opened about ten minutes later, however the England village section remained closed for the investigation.

For a period of time, no one was allowed to enter Busch Gardens, and guests and workers already in the park were not allowed to leave.

Police and fire crews searched for a possible explosive, but nothing suspicious was found.
