i went here for vacation and i couldnt be more disappointed.. there were many fat women running around in small bathing suits and my kids were with me! that is unacceptable! the roller coasters were fun but all of the workers made my experience worse..everyone was in a bad mood and told my kids to shut up! that is also unacceptable.

Just want to point a few minor mistake. a) Gwazi Wooden Coaster is actually not that old. Only 9yrs old. and B) 4 coaster serve as the big anchors for the park

All I have to say is Busch Gardens Tampa is one of the best park around. Not so many rides like other amusement parks, but it has variant animals and vegetation. I always visit Busch Gardens each year. This year they have a new area called Jungala and it is an amazing beautiful area filled with nice vegetation, animals and rides for the younger ones. And its close to the 2 bigger coaster SheiKra and Kumba. Def a must visit

There is so much here for the entire family. There are rides for the toddlers, as well as the Dragon's playland for the climbers. They have plenty of more relaxed attractions like a circumference train ride, a sky ride, an enclosed safari monorail, and various natural animal attractions. This is Anhauser Busch's park (hint: BUSCH GARDENS ), so they have clydesdale paddocks where you can check out these magnificent beasts. For you beer lovers, you can enjoy 2 free small draft beers in various places.
The food is great. There are many other eateries from fast type food to a nicer restaurant near the entrance. You can eat outside in cafe style or eat indoors. The prices range from modest to very expensive. Lots of side yummies too.
Moving on, they periodically have street performers such as you may see in Africa as well as a neat little marching band that parades through the streets. There are many variety shows that keep with the African/Morrocan theme. I just noticed a 3d pirate show on the web I haven't seen yet.
For those who like a County Fair, they have an area where you can win stuffed animals and such. Don't try anything at the start of your day. You may have to carry a stuffed tiger bigger than you! Now this area can cost a bit depending on how many times you let them talk you into throwing a ball or 2.
For the thrill seekers, there are many great roller coasters like the Kumba and the Montu to name a few. If you want to get wet, there's Stanley Falls and Tanganyika Tidal Wave. If you stand on the bridge, the Tidal Wave will drench you when it drops down and splashes into the water below!
The summer is hot, and the lines are long, but what did you expect at any park in the summer? The world likes Florida. Sorry! Try late Nov/early Dec if you don't care to get wet. I rode the Kumba 3 times in 10 mins!
One last thing. They have gay days, so plan accordingly. You can schedule your church or school for kids camps or up close animal encounters.

This place rocks. We were in Florida for 9 days and did everything we could from Sea World to Disney World to Busch Gardens to Ft Walton Beach. Busch Gardens was the MOST fun by far. Sea World is great too so get the ticket where you get a discount on both. I highly recommend it.

We went to Busch Gardens in April for Spring Break 06. We had the best time!!! The weather was wonderful not too hot. The new roller coaster Sheikra was the best ever. This roller coaster is amazing. The other ones are awesome too but this one is the best ever. We will go back to Busch Gardens each year. If you have a teenager this is the place to go.

Our family visited Busch Gardens a few years ago while vacationing in Florida. What a beautiful park!! They obviously take great care and employ many gardeners to have this appeal. The rides were fun and my kids enjoyed seeing the animals at this park. We were very inpressed and hope to visit again when we are in Florida.

Pros: Beautifully lanscaped, fun and attractive rides, animal attractions also a plus.

Cons: Waiting in line for the more popular rides, more expensive than other parks.

I live in Tampa and I have the Silver Passport to go there as many times as I want, free parking, 10% off meals and merchandise. I go there more times then I can count a year and it still has not brought my mind to think the park was boring. I do have to admit the summer times can be a hassle. There are a lot of tour groups and too many tourists that destroy the parks experience (like them making a mess or being rude and overcrowding) Yes it is in Florida and it gets hot. It can get very crowded but only during the peak season such is how it gets everywhere. The rides are amazing! Sheikra I have riden countless times, but it doesnt take away the greatness of its other coasters. Its a great place to visit a 100 times over!

If you like to walk around for hours to get to the only 3 cool rides and wait in hour long rides, you will love this park. Cause the rides are the only real reason people go to amusement parks, right? This is too expensive, too many people and they might as well call it a big waste of time. Again, if you like to spend a lot of money and spend hours walking around to ride 3 rides, you are in for the time of your life. I forgot to mention you are doing this in 90 degree weather most of the time.

Busch Gardens combines the fun and excited of some of the worlds best roller coasters with some of the most exotic animals. Part zoo part amusement park this place has it all. If youre tired of the same old theme park adventure (Disney and Universal) why have you not been to Busch Gardens?!?! This is not a small town amusement park folks. This is a five star family entertainment fun filled place to spend a few days. Its cooler than Orlando with the Gulf breeze and youre so much closer to the ocean for a days trip there! Since Ive moved to Atlanta, this is the one park that I miss the most. Im planning a trip sometime next year. Still doubtful Ill get on that new roller coaster though. 90 degrees straight down!!! I dont think so. :)

Forget boring Disney! If you are after thrill rides, Busch Gardens is the place 2 go 2. I personally dont care about seeing funny people in costumes or visiting fake countries and am not into movies either. This is my main reason for loving Busch Gardens. It is simply the best attraction you can go to in Florida if you actually wanna go on rides. They have a huge selection of coasters, from smaller ones to the big shiekra which no 1 should miss. They also have cool water rides and the safari. Just visit it and you will see what i'm talking about- you wont regret it!

My kids and I LOVED Busch Gardens. My son 17 year old looking for girls found plenty. My daughter, 14 had been to Disneyland too many times to count and KNOWS her rides. we all agreed this was awesome! We all could find something we loved in the rides, food , animals, exhibits! We never had to separate because each thing held enough interest for those who didn't necessarily LOVE it. from the 4d theater & Clydesdales to Dale Jrs car! We went on each ride three times in a row- Montu was awesome and if you get hot, walk across the 'bridge'. Perfect for the family, prices were awesome, parking and shuttle were easy, food was good and there were no lines! I DO suggest go in July- much quieter Oregon folks loved it then! That was why we go to Florida- the weather, the humidity and the thunderstorms!

This is a wonderful park with amazing gardens, famtastic animal attractions, and great rides! The food is good with lots of choices. The Serengeti Safari is amazing with the opportunity to get really up close and personal with giraffes. Montu is fabulous with its theming and great drops. Gwazi is an excellent fly-by wooden coaster. Avoid going in the heat of summer when the Florida sun can do real damage and the lines are long. If short on time, try the VIP tours- its pricey, but you get immediate access to the rides.

I've been to Busch Gardens 3 times and only once was it so busy that I had to wait a long time in line to get on rides. There are awesome coasters and tons of stuff to do. The food is a bit pricey but what theme park doesn't have high prices. I live in Idaho and have been to Florida 3 times and visited Busch Gardens everytime while only stopping at EPCOT in Disneyworld once. Busch Gardens is probably cheaper and you'll be able to get on more rides. This place is definitely for those who don't care about seeing a guy dressed as a mouse.

We have been to Busch Gardens several times, and have always found something for everyone. If you are not into coasters, there are many other things to do, such as the tram over the African animals or other safari-themed attractions. The Johannesburg Smokehouse and the German Biergarten are excellent sources of chow. In reference to the review by "ilikegirlsbutts," I vigorously disagree. The writer obviously went to the park with something besides food, rides, and family fun on his mind. Where else would one want to be when it is over 90 degrees, besides the Congo River rapids or the "soaking bridge" (if you have been there, you know where I mean). In Tampa Bay, it is a must-do.

We had a fabulous 2 days at Busch Gardens in December 2002. We came all the way from SA and the whole family had a good time. The children loved the dinosaur part of the park as well as the ice show. The fest house's christmas show was magnificent. Lots of video was taken and will be treasured for ever. Until we come again - hopefully sooner than later. Letitia Lange (South Africa).

If your a florida resident you can buy one day and come back the rest of the year free or buy an all-inclusive ticket for cheaper than a single day admission. This park is one of the best in the world. ACE members ask for discount.

I have a FL fun pass now and even used to work in the Zoo area and I NEVER tire of going as a guest. They have two of my FAVORITE attractions: awesome rollar coasters and beautiful African wildlife. I really get my money's worth out of that pass! I must go at least 20 times per year! One thing though: employees from zoo, PR, entertainers and other higher paid positions are very nice and helpful, but gift shop and food service people (excluding sit down in Crown Colony) are notoriously rude and/or apathetic, although I guess if I was getting paid what they are maybe I'd be less than enthusiastic too. These are your front line people BG, as guests out for a fun day we want to see cheery, polite people!! Maybe you ought to pay these workers more then be justified in scrutinizing potential workers for quality.

I have been to Busch Gardens a couple of times...It is usually very crowded, but that should be expected in a theme park such as this...I love the fact that they have a wooden roller coaster...They seem to be going out with age. It's hard to get help promptly at some of the gift stores.I realize there are many young employees who probably get close to minimum wage, but they still need to care about the consumer... Overall, this is a very exciting Amusement park and I DO soggest it to friends, neighbors, etc.

I moved to Tampa 1 year ago from the ohio valley region which boasts alot of fun theme parks. I am proud to say that I have the best theme park in my own backyard. Busch Garden's offers its visitors the best package in one park. Fast rides, entertaining shows, the most beautiful animal exhibits around, and great food to satisfy any hunger. This parks pulls out the stops to entertain the whole family!

We enjoyed our day a Busch Gardens, but won't return due to the allowance of smoking thoughout the park. We have been spoiled by Disney, where smoking is only allowed in designated areas. For a few more dollars a day, we'll drive to Orlando for the fun and fresh air. - RTM

This is a them park that has everything to offer. A water park right next door. It's own safari, fun rollercoasters, and my personal favorite would be seeing all the animals they have a petting zoo and all.

Busch Gardens is the best place for everyone in the family. The rideaholics will love the rollercoasters to the water rides. The younger kids will have fun in the Land of Dragons play area. Their is also many shows and attractions for the tamer members in your group who prefer to relax and enjoy their day. The ice skating show is great for all to see. The FestHaus is a good place for everyone to cool off, eat lots, and enjoy the daily entertainment. Also, for those of age, the Hospitality House offers the best tasting beer around!!!
