Busch Gardens Tampa theme park - It's 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 every second of the way! 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 can 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.
