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
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.
