Busch Gardens, Tampa: 42 reviews and 58 photos
Bush Gardens is more than just an amusement park it is also quite the zoo so please take time to enjoy the animals. I have had season passes about 5 of the 10 years I've lived in Tampa and still enjoy wondering around the park - even on those days when I don't feel like doing the rides.
My favorites are the various talks the zoo keepers do (will be on the park schedule), the Hippo pool & the gorillas wildlife area.
If you are really into animals there are several back stage tours you can do for a fee. There is even a "zoo keeper for the day" program.
If you are really into animals it is well worth buying a season pass and also visiting Bush Gardens two sister parks in Orlando - Sea World and Discovery Cove (dolphins and snorkeling). If your interested in going to these parks buy the tickets at the same time for a discount.
