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

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.

Feeling a little extra dare-devilish? Don't miss Tigris, the newest addition to the park – and now Florida's tallest launch coaster. Tigris catapults you through an exhilarating tangle of loops, twists, drops, and a 150-foot skyward surge – all at more than 60 miles per hour!

More sensible adventurers can join the fun on the graceful Gwazi Gliders, the splash-tastic Stanley Falls Flume, and many other rides dotted around the park.

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 keep their star performers in tip-top condition.
