We had a lot of fun at Busch Gardens, a lot of rides to ride on for all ages but did not see a lot of animals like we thought we would. The park was clean and very easy to get to. The kids had a wonderful time.

It was great if you like rollercoasters. For older people, not so much. However, the shows were outstanding! Overall, I probably wouldn't go back.

Park was not crowded on this day (Sunday). Children were able to get on rides quickly with little or no wait. Found discounted tickets on Groupon for $45 each which was a great price compared to the $75 park price. Park was open from 10 am to 10 pm and included Howl O Scream from 6 to 10 pm, but... More

The landscaping is beautiful, plenty of rides, but expensive. Group rate was better than normal admission, but still not a bargain. My group did both the amusement park, and the water park. It is a good time, but be prepared to pay for tickets. I would take my group again, Everyone had a great time.

The park is always fun if you like rides, carnival games and unique shows. If your coming for roller coasters, be prepared to wait in long lines, especially if your coming over a holiday or weekend during the summer. We enjoyed the children's section and smaller rides on our trip over Easter weekend.

I used to go to Busch Gardens as a child and it's great to see it hasn't lost it's charm now that I'm an adult. This is the cleanest, prettiest and most well kept amusement park I've been to. My kids thoroughly enjoyed it and we are planning on getting season passes now that we live close by. The food... More

Love, love this park! Keep coming back every year despite now living in New Orleans. Always attend in the summer, and then for Christmas Town. Love the decorations and feel of it all. The rides are great. The grounds are always well groomed and clean.

I had not gone to Busch Gardens in a few years and I must say it is even better than I remembered. The food was great and the rides are beyond exhilarating. It was a family trip with ages ranging from 12 months - 50 years old and there was a ride for everyone. No one felt left out here.... More

The "London Rocks" show was absolutely the worst show Busch Gardens has ever set on stage. The show is insulting to England and we Americans should be embarrassed. The show mocks the Queen and Busch Gardens entertainment department should know better. They would never have put a show on stage with such a tacky representation of any other county. This... More

This is just a review of the Show called Monster Stomp at Busch Gardens, which is part of their Howl O' Scream line up for 2014. I saw the performance tonight and was very disturbed by it. The underlying theme deals with Jack the Ripper and a woman is chased behind a curtain near the beginning of the show. She... More
