Busch Gardens Tampa Bay
Busch Gardens® Tampa Bay is a family-oriented theme park featuring up-close encounters with exotic animals, incredible thrill rides and live entertainment. With nearly 12,000 animals representing more than 300 species, the park’s zoological collection is a marquee attraction for families, and its world-class thrill rides appeal to all ages. Cheetah Hunt®, a triple-launch roller coaster, carries riders high above the park, and then races down along the ground through a rocky gorge. It is the park’s longest thrill ride and also innovatively integrates the coaster next to the Cheetah Run® animal habitat. Guests can get closer than ever to tigers in Jungala® and soar through the air on Montu®. And, for a behind-the-scenes look at how we care for animals, the new Animal Care Center™ welcomes guests to closely observe the veterinary care and treatment we provide every day. The park also offers seasonal events including the terrifying Howl-O-Scream® and the holiday wonderland of Christmas Town™. Just across the street is the Adventure Island® water park.
