“The ultimate family adventure park”
Busch Gardens Tampa is the ultimate family adventure park, featuring an unparalleled combination of animal encounters, live entertainment and world-class thrill rides. Busch Gardens Tampa is one of 10 parks across the U.S. operated by SeaWorld Parks & Entertainment. Along with the SeaWorld parks in Orlando, San Diego and San Antonio, Busch Gardens Europe and Water Country USA in Williamsburg, Va., Adventure Island in Tampa, Fla. and Sesame Place near Philadelphia, the 10 parks play host to 25 million guests each year and employ 26,000 people nationwide.
You'll probably need more than one day here. There's so much to do, but be warned, Florida has a hurricane season and if you visit when the weather is iffy lots of rides will be closed. The upside though is that there's more to this park than just the rides. There's loads of animals to see, that the kids will like. Personally, I'm not a fan of zoos. But, to each his own. Average wait time is about 25 minutes in the park, and they do have fast passes you can get to skip the lines. If it's hot, ride Shekira, or just walk near it and you'll get soaked. :)
We loved our visit to Busch Gardens Tampa! :-)
We got the "Waves of Honor" for military giving us free tickets. We decided to try the "All You Can Eat" and The "Unlimited Quick Pass" for front of the line access everytime! :-) The shows were great, the food was great and best of all we had an amazing time for a great price! Our favorite roller coaster was the Sheikra!
If you love to spend hours in the Florida heat waiting for your chance to get on rides, pay $20 for a beer, $8 for a pretzel dog, then this place is for you.
Be sure to go on the safari tour with The giraffes, it’s an extra cost, definitely worth it!!
Busch Gardens has always been my favorite since I was a kid. There are lots of roller coasters here plus zoo type things and it's just great. The food is alright, a little pricey like all theme park food. Last time I went was maybe 2 days after Thanksgiving a few years ago and the place was pretty empty, got to ride everything we desired as many times as we wanted. I've never been here with "little" kids, but I did enjoy it when I was about 8 or 9.
Had a great time at Busch Gardens seeing all of the various types of wildlife and the Serengeti Tour is definitely worth the extra money. Riding along and feeding the giraffes was a hoot!
