    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.

    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.

    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!!

    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!

    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

    Need more than a day as there is so much to see. It's pretty much a hybrid between an amusement park and a zoo so a great place from toddlers to teens all the way to adults - yes they serve alcohol.

    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!

    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!

    First time and it was awesome. ride almost all the rides. the lines weren't too long. the cheetah was 50 min. the aca pella group was AMAZING. $20 for ride pictures with season pass.

    Ride Sheikra in the front, no matter how long the line is. Ride Kumba in the very last row. Ride everything at least once, except Scorpion (unless you like whiplash...). If possible, ride Sheikra at n Read more

    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!

    Rides are cool, but bring quarters and prepare for the inconvenience of having your stuff in a locker all day. Employees will not let you on line with a bag, then you see cubby holes when you get on.

    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

    I got an idea....lets charge people .50 every time they want to ride ANY roller coaster because they have to stow their backpacks in lockers. Not like EVERY OTHER THEME PARK where it's free. Fuck you

    If you visit Universal first, be prepared to be disappointed here! Very outdated and the animals look miserable in their very confined spaces. Also, you have to pay extra for the safari ride!

    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

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

    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

    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.

    Not a very disable friendly park.Someone should try navigating the shops/areas in a wheelchair.Knocking things over all day is not fun! Park rental wheelchairs are also in poor condition.

    Cheetah Hunt, Sheikra, Kumba and Montu. Best thrill rides in the area! Also, don't forget to check out the wildlife -- it's like a mock African safari! Have fun (:

    If you're military check out Here's to the Heros- thank you Busch Gardens for this amazing discount! Rhino ridge was a fav this trip- amazing time and SO close to the animals!

    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.

    Awesome park, Sheikra rocks! Lots of animals, would have skipped the Florida aquarium if I had my time back. All the animals you'd want to see are here!

    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!

    One of the best theme parks for thrill coasters, and something here for everyone! Wear comfy shoes and download the app for wait times!

    Worst park ever. The crew does not work to organize lines, looks like always complaining and if you're not REALLY thin, you can't ride Montu, Cheetah, Sheikra and others. Never coming back.

    We dare you to take the Express Railway around the Serengeti Path and see all the animals, follow that up with riding the Congo River Rapids and the Tanganyika Tidal wave and get totally soaked.

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

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

    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.

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

    Bring dollars or quarters unless you aren't carrying anything in your hand. If you are this park requires you to put stuff in 50 cent lockers at each ride.

    Try the Montu later in the day. Its lines tend to be the shortest! Also, if your going to the park stop at one of the usf dining halls beforehand for all you can eat to fill up
