Busch Gardens has been a favorite theme park of mine since I moved to the Tampa area. It is packed full of roller coasters and safari animals!
Pros: Amazing rides Plenty of animals to see
At least a few times a year I have to go to Busch Gardens! Great rides, tons of cool animals and it's always a blast in a group!
I love going to Busch Gardens! Its like a zoo and amusement park in one...Lots to see and lots to do! It gets hot during the summer but if its too hot for Busch Gardens check out Adventure Island... Their water park next door!
Who doesn't love going on roller coasters?
Busch Gardens is a well-managed theme park that is perfect for the thrill seeker. They have tons of coasters sure to scare the pants off you!
Busch Gardens was a popular spot for me as a kid. The annual Fun Pass just kept me going back to the point that I rode Montu and Kumba more than 100 times in just a few weeks of my summer in the early 2000s. My interest waned as I grew older and as ticket prices continued to climb every year. Sheikra brought me back for a day, but ultimately left me with the same result of never going back to the park. Now with the new USF deal where students can visit for a year for $50, it's really worth it to go to Busch Gardens - I think I'll be going back. My favorite area has always been Timbuktu - a place where they have shows and cool rides and it's been long enough that the rides can be fun again. I miss checking out the animals in the park as well. Howl-O-Scream should bring me back to the park as well.
Pros: Fun rides, affordable for USF students
Cons: Rides can get old after some time
ta'xiis heraa damn ekxpensive wantooo shai're !! :P
They used to have beer school and offer samples of beer which they don't anymore. The "Fun Card" where you pay for a day and come back all year is good but I recommend the season pass because it is 1 year from the time you get it and it includes parking.
Pros: Great location close to other Tampa things to do. Has a good old, wooden coaster and some great newer ones.
Cons: Good for the younger crowd but a limited number of "big kid" rides like roller coasters and fast rides.
Pros: Get the year pass or silver pass it pays for it self in two visits.
