I had not been to Busch Gardens for several years, but recently I started back now that I have additional new family members. Busch Garden's is not Disney, there are not the massive crowds that Disney has and at Busch Garden's there are mostly rides to satisfy most anyone. There are numerous rollercoasters from medium to high trills. Rides that... More

I absolutely recommend Busch Gardens for anybody that loves amusement parks! It was worth the drive from Orlando, my family felt like this was a great way to end our vacation in Florida. Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful! Even had great food!

Great place ...if you live nearby a season's pass is worth it whether you are 2 or 102. After you have spent several visits seeing all the animal exhibits and enjoying the rides, there are still more reason's to come back. The shows are so professional and change regularly. When the heat and humidity get the best of you you... More

We have lived in the area for 25 years and this has been and still is the best family park ever. Tropical and lush. Take time to see all the live animals.

Great place I have a yearly pass and go often. Love the rollercoasters and other rides. Love to see the animals running free while riding the train through their home.

Whether it is the high speed roller coasters, water rides, the great variety of shows, or unbelievable animals experiences...There is something for everyone, including the little people. Shows, play areas, and rides for them as well. The park is usually very manageable and the lines are decent on most days. It is my favorite theme park in the country.

The food is great, you should try the BBQ place that is behind is Sheikra it's super delicious and it has a great sitting area outside. If your kids like Sesame Street it has an area that it's theme and very child friendly, has ride,... More

Love it there is something for everybody,I have had a annual pass since 2011 and we always say we are going to get rid of it and don't. The only thing I don't like is the Xmas park just because they close early and as annual member you gotta pay extra and is a already pricy member ship!

This park has a lot to offer for all ages. I enjoy all the Roller Coasters, seeing all the animals, and just the general feel of the entire park.

Busch Gardens is a fabulous place to take family of all ages. Something for everyone. Indoor shows too if it is raining. Buying the ticket to come back all year is such a bargain. Parking is about $20. Trolleys to take you to the main entrance from the car park.
