SeaWorld & Busch Gardens Adventures

Busch Gardens Complete Guide

2017 Busch Gardens Tampa Bay Complete Guide

Thinking about making a solo trip out to Busch Gardens Tampa Bay anytime soon? This wild and adventurous theme park is known to have some of the best roller coasters and thrill rides in Florida. Formerly known as the Dark Continent, Busch Gardens Tampa Bay invites you to seek adventures in the lush and mysterious lands of Africa.

I have so many fond memories of this magnificent theme park. It was the first time I had rode a roller coaster, Python, and it was the first park I was able to explore on my own. Busch Gardens was also a place where I created great memories with my large family, being that it was a much more affordable theme park for families to attend together.

Busch Gardens was opened in Tampa, Florida on March 31, 1959 by the Anheuser-Busch company as a free animal attraction alongside a brewery. It has since become a 335-acre theme park divided into African-themed regions: Egypt, Congo, Birds Garden, Jungala, Morocco, Nairobi, Pantopia, the Cheetah Hunt area, Sesame Street Safari of Fun, and Stanleyville that can be done in one day.

Mako Ride Highlight and Review

Mako’s…fast, no really fast, no SUPER FAST!

Smooth with more airtime than you can handle in one coaster. If it’s anything like the now famous (or infamous) shark, the Mako, then we need to stay out of the water.

The holiday season has officially arrived in central Florida and I was able to do a quick visit to Busch Gardens Tampa Bay as they prepared to set the stage for the spectacular Christmas Town celebration. An event that will combine 15,000 sq. ft. of real snow to play in, a deliciously prepared feast by Mrs. Claus, more lights than you can imagine, and oh yeah the thrilling rides that keep Hipsters returning to Busch Gardens. This event will run on select nights from November 29th until December 23rd of this year.
