This is a tour that I highly recommend for kids ages 10-99
Cost Adults $99 Kids $89. Park entrance fees are still required. I went over and over whether this was worth the extra cost! It was worth it even though the lines where short when we visited. They were at least 10-20 minutes. We rode each coaster twice, and if we would have had to stand in line we would not have been able to do this even with short lines. Now, at peak times....RUN DON"T WALK TO GET THIS 5 HOUR GUIDED TOUR!
Fantastic Busch Garden experience...we had basically a private tour because no one else showed up, but it can include up to 15 people that get front-of-the-line access to most of our major rides. Lunch at a family favorite restaurant that includes a show. Then Get up-close and personal feeding giraffes, kangaroos, exotic birds, and flamingos. Then jump on the Serengeti Safari to view zebras, giraffes and ostriches. Water is provided all day, and the guide takes you to the front of the line and holds all your belongings. In our case she also bit the bullet and went on all the rides I refused to go on (water soaking and scary coasters) with my teenage daughter. Thanks Hope!
When you add up all the costs for lunch, water, food for animals and safari it comes to around $79 dollars you would spend anyway...so your only paying an additional $20 may be $30 with tip for a private guide and you DON"T HAVE TO STAND IN LINE!
If this tour is out of your price range, then I would suggest that you budget into your trip the African safari $39...this tour made our day, and the whole experience positive and memorable when we spent 10 minutes hand feeding giraffes. Shout out to Drew who gave some good photo tips on the Serengeti Tour.
I would recommend this for kids who can see over the truck rail on the safari and are tall enough to ride the roller coasters. For Adults you will need to be able to walk all day (you do the whole park) and enjoy riding coasters (most of the rides).
I am plan on buying this tour as Christmas gifts this year. No waiting in lines, great animal interactions, Grandparents or parents can take the kids (enjoy the day without ever getting any rides unless they want to), and great guides who know the park and all the tips and tricks to having a spectacular day!
Pack a bag with sunscreen, take some Bonnine (prevents motion sickness), a camera, some spending and tip money.
The guided tour is well worth the money, but if it's not in the budget definitely plan on taking the Serengeti Safari. Skip the gift shops with overpriced t shirts and other cheesy unnecessary stuff, and use your money for an enjoyable experience you will remember for years to come!
I saw wheel chairs being used, but I did not see any motorized scooters, so ask about this if you have mobility problems.
