    What to Expect
    As one of the largest zoos in North America, Busch Gardens Tampa provides an unforgettable experience for the entire family. The park is home to 12,000 animals representing more than 250 species. From alligators and elephants to hippos and hyenas, there is a huge variety of animals to see — and get close to. In fact, Busch Gardens brings guests face to face (literally) with more exotic and endangered species than any attraction outside of Africa.

    Fly above the trees on a zip line and try your strength in a tug of war with a Bengal tiger in Jungala.

    The park’s large collection of roller coasters makes it Florida’s top spot for thrill rides. Try SheiKra, the first dive coaster in the country.

    Take a ride on Cobra's Curse - The one-of-a-kind spin coaster features a menacing 30,000-pound snake king icon and a 70-foot vertical lift that will take riders within inches of its 3 foot-wide eyes and 4-foot-long fangs. During the three-and-a-half-minute ride, the coaster trains speed along at 40 mph down 2,100 feet of serpentine-like track, traveling backward, forward and then spinning freely. Experience a new spin with each ride!

    Upgrade this ticket to include admission to SeaWorld Orlando, a theme park offering more roller coasters, rides, shows, attractions and family-friendly activities for thrill seekers and animal lovers alike. See dolphins, white beluga whales and penguins. Plus visit Adventure Island Tampa or Aquatica, SeaWorld’s waterparks, with rivers to float in and enclosed tube slides. All-day dining and unlimited parking options are available for purchase.

    Please note: Tickets are only valid on selected date of travel.

    Yes we did just that! Many hotels around few miles provide shuttle service as well. We did shuttle one way, stayed late and took uber back.

    Although we did not purchase this during our visit, it appeared to be reasonable. But make sure you check the park hours... sometimes they are only open from 10 AM to 6 PM (if you are not season pass ticket holders). If... More
