I've been to every theme park Florida has to offer and Busch Gardens is the best by far. If you like thrill rides you will certainly enjoy this park. Even if you don't like thrill rides you can look at the animals and go on the smaller attractions.

If you enjoy seeing wild African animals, especially the large cats, you will love visiting this park. Make sure you wear your walking shoes, you will be doing a lot of walking. There is a train and the sky ride that takes you from one side of the park to the other. The sky ride is awesome, as you have a great aerial view of the park.
All the animals are beautiful and their habitats are very well maintained.
Had an extremely wonderful day!

Great mix of rides , animals and other bits to see, plus lots of space so not as manic as Universal and co., bit of a drive but worth the effort. Cheetah Hunt and Sheikra were amazing.

Tip : check kids heights before you go as lot of rides are 54inches , so probably not suited for littler kids.

The rides were ok..but it had no personality. There were no sound effects or anything, and the rides were very minimum. Universal is waaaay better. I am going to Six flags New England, is it good? It has bad food too

We are snowbirds and while we stay Tampa area for the winter, I go to Busch Gardens every week. I love to ride Cheetah Hunt (coaster) and visit the animals. I am still learning more stuff, even after going regularly for three seasons. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable, the grounds are clean and well maintained, the gifts shops are good, and the shows are fun.
