Get ready to experience the thrill of one of the world's greatest theme parks! Sprawling over a mammoth 335 acres, there's no shortage of adrenaline-pumping rollercoasters and awe-inspiring attractions. Not wild enough for you? How about over 12,000 of nature's most exotic animals, in one of the US's biggest zoos? The Busch is back, baby!

Now there's no need to choose between zoos and theme parks – you can experience the best of both worlds at Tampa Bay's Busch Gardens. Rides weave in and out of animal habitats in a globe-trotting experience that blasts you from the deserts of Morocco deep into the jungles of the Congo.

If you're in a high-octane mood, you can't miss the record-breaking 'dive coaster' SheiKra, Falcon's Fury drop towers or the stomach-churning corkscrews of Kumba. More sensible adventurers can join the fun on the graceful Gwazi Gliders, splash-tastic Stanley Falls Flume, and many more.

Of course, kids young and old will love going wild with thousands of exotic animals in the expansive Edge of Africa Experience and jaw-dropping Bird Gardens. You can even see the state-of-the-art animal hospital where the park's team of vets keeping their star performers in tip-top condition.

Had a really nice trip to Busch Gardens. It was a Monday (school day) and this was not very crowded... which meant we didn’t have to wait too long in lines. The app was easy to use and had my ticket right on my phone.
