Busch Gardens Tampa Bay combines unparalleled exotic animal encounters, world-class thrill rides, and family fun entertainment. This year, explore the world through “Iceploration,” the park’s all-new ice show. And go zero to Cheetah on the park’s newest launch coaster, Cheetah Hunt.
Just over an hour west of SeaWorld Orlando near Florida’s beautiful Gulf Coast, you’ll find yourself on the edge of Africa at Busch Gardens in Tampa Bay.
Experience up-close encounters with amazing animals, take an unforgettable safari across the Serengeti Plains, test your courage on pulse-pounding roller coasters, take in a stage show, and see colorful live entertainment all year long. Busch Gardens is perhaps Tampa’s most beloved attraction, and is world-famous for its thrill rides, vivid and fragrant subtropical gardens, and for being a fantastic, Gulf-Coast alternative to the parks of the Orlando area. Furthermore, there is nothing gimmicky about this park’s African theme—it’s done well, and the animal preserves are a beautiful and tasteful addition to the rides and shows.
