We have not visited Busch Gardens Florida in about three years. The rides seem to be geared towards a much younger crowd, than it used to be. We used to always buy silverpass. But with the changes in the attractions. And no longer have the hospitality house..Just not the same park since it was sold

We visited a while ago, mainly to see all the animals not so much for the rides. We paid the extra money to ride on the safari truck so that we could pet and feed the giraffe. Totally awesome and worth the extra money for a once in a lifetime experience... If you visit this place definitely do it!!!

I love going and seeing all the attractions, the animals are awesome, I especially like to go in the winter when all the different theatres has the old music, also the entertainment.

There is something for everyone here. The rides go from wild to mild. All ages can be entertained here.One needs to be aware of height restrictions. Food is on par in price of all the other amusement parks..Shade is limited so bring plenty of sunscreen. Large groups (school) etc. can use an area with picnic tables. Entertainment with shows, music, mimes are shown on and off during the day. Pick up a day guide sheet for the day. See things early before the crowd.

This was my first visit to Busch Gardens in a long time and it didn't disappoint! Really big park with so much to see, definitely a full day's worth! My eldest daughter loved this park for the big rides, especially Sheikra and Cheetah Hunt and I liked the animals. Great theming throughout. Thumbs up!
