Busch Gardens Tampa - Its like going on Safari - With Thrill Rides!

The tropical landscape, exotic animals and thrill rides make for a vacation filled with excitement and adventure. Ten African themed park areas with animals, rides, entertainment and food, provide a thrill a minute.

Twelve animal exhibits featuring cheetahs, gorillas, chimps, meerkats, lemurs, orangutan, tigers, elephants and more African favorites, some in free roaming herds. Some are interactive exhibits where you get up close and personal and maybe even feed a kangaroo!

Did we mention rides? There are rides for the whole family, from the extreme thrill seekers to family rides and kiddie rides. The newest thrill ride, Falcon's Fury mimics the flight of a bird of prey diving for quarry. This tower drop ride pivots 90 degrees to plunge 60 mph facing the ground!

After seeing all of these animals and riding the thrilling rides, you'll have definitely worked up an appetite. Get ready to have your hunger quenched when you stop at one of the park's many eateries, including the Garden Gate Cafe, where you can enjoy a pizza and pasta buffet and enjoy your favorite Coca-Cola beverage, or visit the Desert Grill, where a delicious family friendly menu awaits you with items like baby back ribs, spaghetti and meatballs, italian sausage sandwiches, and many more.

Good food, great fun, and awesome animal exhibits, your trip to Busch Gardens Africa is going to be an unforgettable one. Bring the whole family and have a memorable vacation with Busch Gardens! For a wet, wild experience visit the neighboring sister water park Adventure Island, too!

Busch gardens was well worth the money spent as it had many extreme roller coasters and great shows/exhibits. We had to wait for 2 and a half hours under coverings due to a huge thunderstorm which closed all the rides. It was still an awesome place to vacation.
