Busch Gardens is a perfect combination of very spectacular rollercoasters and beautiful animal habitats. I had an amazing day with a lot of fun and good food. This theme park is definitely recommended for anyone who's fond of adrenalin rides!

This place is awesome!!! Falcons fury is a must even if it seems too intimidating. Along with Falcons fury the coasters are awesome and perfect for thrill seekers. Can't wait to go back!!!!
When in Tampa visit the gardens I was told....so I did!! What a good call! Such a peaceful & beautiful gardens. Butterflies & tiny lizards everywhere & a huge selection of flowers & plants just to enjoy!! Perfect way to spend a quiet day relaxing and enjoying the sunshine!!

The rides are the best in all of Florida. The food isn't that great for the price but its a theme park. I don't expect much. The only HUGE negative is how they treat their animals.... sure they have care 24/7 but they are also put into small cages at night, the have loud music blasting into their viewing cages, the tigers are disgustingly skinny, and I'm pretty sure all the animals are on a greens diet. It is really sad to watch. Also the penguin exhibit is so small its smaller than my bathroom. The people who work their will they you the animals live longer in the parks and they are under great care. But anyone who knows animals can look at them and know they are not ok.
