3 strikes I tried using this 3 different occasions and each time it says the park is closed. Simply not accurate since I was already in the park and waiting on a line.

Not impressed at all - when application opened it stated "park not open today" - BG brochure says open today 10am-6pm.

I know busch gardens like the back of my hand. That being said this app is a must for those who aren't familiar with busch. Just after downloading it I was able to navigate through it with out any trouble. Pin points shows, rides, places to eat, and other attractions.

Clunky visual overload Was excited to try, but this was a letdown. Very old info, inaccurate details, and such a visual eyesore that I can't focus. Everything is fighting for my attention, so nothing gets it. I grabbed the real Busch app at the same time. While there is also a lot to process there, its much better organized, cleaner, and more accurate & up to date for things that really matter for my visits like wait times, navigation, and show times

Memory This app needs tho be transferable to the sd card. It takes up too much memory for most Androids. Too bad really. It's a good app outside of the problems that causes.
