Busch Gardens Tampa Reviews & Ratings
Nice place. Something for everyone. Train was a great way to get from one side of the park to the other. Lots of animals. Food was eh except for fancy restaurant in the middle of the park. Sesame Street village was perfect for my five year old granddaughter. A pint sized amusement park. Cons: Music too loud and each area competed with the next. At little kids park music was so screechy that I had to cover my ears at times. The place for people that are sensitive to sound LOTS of walking. And they have about rentals ($50) but it's a long walk to get them and a long walk from there back to the car. Chair and scooter rentals should be near the gates. We went at the end of June. Too hot and humid to enjoy walking that much Also not easy to access food anywhere in a wheelchair.
Our family enjoyed a great visit in July! It was overcast so it was a nice break from the sun. The park was not overly crowded on a Tuesday and the longest we waited for a ride was about 20 min. The animals were all out and about so that awesome to see them, many of them quite close. The park was very clean and tidy and the garden areas were green and vibrant. We sampled some foods but didn't get a chance to do any shows. Will be planning a fall trip to enjoy it all again and more!
Love Busch Gardens. Have been there several times, but every time coming there I open something new for myself. Animals part of the park is stunning you can always learn something new about animal, learn how you can help safe some species. Highly recommend this park fire kids and for adults
If you like roller coasters, this is the place for you! We screamed so much that it took 2 days to get our voices back. Unfortunately, we did not get a chance to ride everything because thunderstorms started around 3:00 and they shut down the rides. The temperature was almost 100 degrees so drink a ton of water. The good news is that they were offering a 4th of July fun pass for $69 per person for unlimited visits until December. That’s cheaper than a daily ticket so it was a great deal. I love the zoo and they have a lot of really great animals to look at. My cons, the food was expensive and not very good. The lines were slow and we stood in line for 45 minutes. They definitely need help in this area. Also, the signs need help too. They need some more and better directions.
We’ve been to Busch Gardens several times with our season passes and we absolutely love it! It’s more than just roller coasters, it’s actually a beautiful place to see! The plants and the animals alone make this a truly unique experience you just have to see! The food is incredible and with so many different restaurants and little snack shops set up, there’s something for everyone! Even our picky eater!
