Visit Busch Gardens in Tampa

Wildlife Exhibits

The unique design of Busch Gardens combines animal exhibits and amusement park rides in the same venue. Some rides even allow you to get a closer look at the animals. And all in beautiful Africa-inspired scenery. You’ll see over 200 animal species, including elephants, rhinos, and lions. 

Wild Rides

Busch Gardens is famous for its top-rated rollercoasters. Whether you’re a coaster enthusiast or want rides that are fun for the whole family, you’ll find the one you can’t stop talking about. In addition to the rollercoasters, you can also enjoy smaller rides such as the Serengeti Railway or the Congo River Rapids.

Must-See Events

In addition to the major rides and animal attractions, you can also catch a show or spend some time at one of the play areas. In March and April, you won’t want to miss the Food and Wine Festival, a celebration of food, drinks, and music. Check out Busch Garden’s events page for more upcoming special events. 


Ticket prices vary based on the season. You can often get special deals online through the Busch Gardens website or by getting a Tampa Bay CityPASS.  When you buy your tickets, be sure to also check for seasonal theme park hours and show times. Groupon also runs deals periodically.
