The Tampa area is full of enjoyable activities including amusement parks and zoos. With so many options, it may be difficult to decide where to spend the day. Busch Gardens makes that decision easy by being both an amusement park and a zoo!
Residents of our apartments in Tampa, FL are just minutes away from spending a great day at Busch Gardens! Highlights include:
Perhaps the most important feature of an amusement park is the rides. Busch Gardens offers nine exhilarating roller coasters, such as the Egyptian-themed spin coasters "Cobra's Curse" and "Sheikra," which drops riders 200 feet at a 90-degree angle. For those looking for a more relaxing experience, "Skyride" takes guests across the park in a cable car to enjoy panoramic views and the "Congo River Rapids" takes groups on a large tube through a whitewater rafting expedition.
THE ANIMALS AND THE SAFARI
As mentioned previously, Busch Gardens is also a zoo. The park is themed after various African countries, so all of the animals can be found in Africa. Exhibits include rhinos, sloths, cheetahs, tigers, giraffes, lions, and many more. The cheetah exhibit features educational shows with animal trainers and zoologists. In addition, Busch Gardens offers a safari ride where patrons embark on a guided tour and meet many animals in a free-roam environment. The safari also includes a stop where guests may feed giraffes!
These are just some of the attractions you can find at Busch Gardens, located just minutes from our Tampa, Florida apartments. Beyond rides and animals, the park offers many dining options, various shows, including a safari on ice, and numerous gift shops g.
