Ice cream and frozen yogurt

Many of the local ice creameries offer ice cream catering, which is great for your next office gathering, birthday celebration or party! Many places also offer fundraising.

If you’re an adult and looking for a frozen treat, Craft 31 has adult milkshakes with a boozy addition!

One of our favorite tips is that Duck Donuts offers donut sundaes made with one of their fresh, warm donuts and a scoop of ice cream. There are even salted caramel and s’mores versions!

Located in Toano, SnoMania Island offers a full menu of shaved iced with classic and all-natural flavors, daily cut fresh fruit and ice cream. They’ve also got milkshakes on the menu and a fat-free, no sugar added ice cream.

There is no shortage of frozen confections at Busch Gardens, and they come in a variety of forms.

  • There’s Josephine’s Creamery de Chocolat in the France section that sells delicious hand-dipped ice cream sundaes that are topped with hand-crafted chocolate fudge sauce and are served in homemade waffle bowls. (You can see them making them on site!)
  • There’s classic soft serve available in the England and Germany areas of the park as well as Dippin’ Dots at various carts.
  • They serve gelato in the Italy section of the park at Gelato di San Marco.
  • They’ve also got everyone’s favorite famous Dole Whip at Roman Frieze in the Festa Italia section of the park.
  • During Busch Garden's Summer Nights, make sure to visit Minus 321˚, the park’s nitrogen ice cream stand. Did you know that nitrogen ice cream has an ultra-smooth texture?
  • Another bonus tip is that you can get ice cream on your funnel cake at Big Ben's Funnel Cakes and Three Rivers Snacks. A decadent, but delightful treat.
