Sheikra Busch Gardens Must Do's

17 Busch Gardens Must Do’s You Have to Experience

Do you have a Busch Gardens must do list?

I do!

Busch Gardens is a must do theme park in Florida. This amazing park is over 335 acres with more than 2000 animals onsite.

Busch Gardens has a special place in my heart because it was where I rode my first roller coaster, the Python, in 1994. I remember being terrified, but courageous enough to experience this roller coaster. Busch Gardens was also the first theme park I was allowed to do without direct adult supervision.

Now that you understand my love of the park, let’s look at some of my Busch Gardens must do’s!
