    A zoo and theme park combined into one! Really nice to take the family out for a day. My favorite ride was the Cheetah Hunt. Beautiful park. We visited during the Christmas season, awesome at night.

    I highly recommend Cheetah Hunt! 4 Gs, 3/4 of a mile, 130 ft drop, yet not too intense for those starting to get interested in the crazier coasters! There's a ride for everyone at Busch Gardens!

    Buy the yearly pass if you even THINK you will go more than once in 15 months. Free parking ($20 savings each visit) and one free guest pass on your birthday makes it worthwhile. It's a great park!

    Do you like roller-coasters?? That’s the place for you! Montu is the best, but you still have Sheikra, Cheetah Hunt, Scorpion... It’s a old-school park: no 3D simulations ou tech rides.

    I had never been! And I had so much fun! We went during a time of the year that there were no lines at all so we rode everything multiple times!

    Three nationally ranked Rollercoasters, better rides than universal and much less expensive! Get the dining deal, especially if imbibing adult beverages, the buy one get one is worth it.

    Great photo ops on the open truck Serengeti Safari and other Up-Close tours. Night and Sunset options too! Jungala, Walkabout Way, Lory Landing and Bird Gardens for photos as well. Read more

    Less fuss, great rides. If you're looking for something a bit more grown up (other than the Sesame St area!) then this is the park for you. Most rollercoasters here are fantastic ...and fast!

    The roller coasters are legendary! Almost no wait time when we were there. And you can see some amazing animals there as well!

    Recommend the meal pass, it will pay for itself in water bottles alone on a hot day. Also, FREE TICKETS for military through waves of honor program. Last thing, eat at the smokehouse at least once!!

    A lot of great rides and the Serengeti Safari was awesome! Getting up close and personal with some giraffes was so cool!

    Amazing place! Try the photo booths in the first shop in front of you as you walk through security, good fun! Sheikra is a MUST! If your a thrill seeker then Busch gardens will not disappoint!

    Best park in Florida, Orlando’s got only the Hulk coaster against it. Shorter lines, much less crowded, great coasters and good food options.

    Their is a lot of cool roller coasters. It is also half like a zoo. Their gorillas chimpanzees and more when you go on the train ride

    Enjoy the late summer hours and amp up your night with a rush of adrenaline while plummeting down the Cheetah Hunt coaster. Snap a pic, check-in, and use #WhereSummerRocks. But not on the coaster!

    Just miles away from the USF Tampa campus, Busch Gardens offers students rides, fun, and entertainment, and USF students receive a discount of 50 dollars for unlimited admissions!

    Cheetah hunt is the most fun, shiekra is the most exciting! Lots of icee flavors. Love the tea flavors by the train station near shiekra splash zone.

    Everything about this park is groundbreaking. It all seems a new experience no matter how many times you ride it. Montu and SheiKra are out of this Earth lifetime experiences.

    The park offers a lot from thrill rides to amazing shows! Park is kept clean, even with guests dumping trash everywhere. The employees for the most part are respectful and wonderful to be round.

    If you're a Florida resident, get the fun pass. Or have one person get the park pass that includes free parking and the rest of your family get the fun pass.

    Zoo meets a theme park at Busch Gardens Tampa! Less crowded than universal parks and lines seem to move faster.

    The layout is just confusing enough that you feel like you are on a true safari hunt! Lots to see and ride.

    Busch Gardens is awesome! Take the back seats on the Cheetah Run, Montu, and on the Kumba...you will not regret it. The best ride, by far, is the Sheikra...best seat in the house is in the front. Also

    The Sheikra ride was the best, then the cheetah. Be prepared because they are fast, but sooo fun!! Great for family. I did not enjoy the food too much.

    Great mix of thrill rides, integrated with top-notch scenery and gardens. Pricy parking, gifts, and food though, so be prepared

    Amid all the glitz and glamour of the larger coasters sits Scorpion, a Schwarzkopf designed classic looper opened in 1980, also get your picture taken in front of(and soaked by) SheiKra's water spray

    If your not into Roller Coasters, be sure to checkout the ICEploration show, dozens of animal exhibits, and the Serengeti Express Train!

    It is better to visit on Tuesdays during the week. Also, for those who love animals try doing the Heart if Africa tour. Christmas Town is right around the corner.

    Beautiful smaller park, employees are not very helpful, but the Cheetah Hunt is definitely the best ride!

    Park is good, clean and has great attractions. However, hospitality is not one of the main characteristics of the people working there. That’s really unfortunately, something you do not see at Disney.

    Get the Quick Queue for fast and expedited front of the line service; and the Eat All Day Voucher is well worth the $30!!!!

    Fun park to spend the day. From riding rollercoasters to observing animals, there is something for everyone. Hold your nose by the elephant area, those cute critters can be a little stinky. Read more

    Yesterday I went to Busch gardens with some good friends and we both was so excited to see Madagascar live because I seem it all the commercials and it wasn't good as we thought. It was very short.
