This has always been my favorite theme park in all of Florida. Just seeing the animals is worth it to me. All of the rides are amazing, or at least the ones I can fit in(6'4 300lbs)! It bugs me that each ride doesn't have...More

Let me start by stating that while I realize Busch Gardens will state they are not responsible for items left in cars-what a disappointing end to a park visit. When you pay to park and paid the extra 6$ for premium parking you would expect...More

Mixed view of Busch Gardens. The park itself is nicely laid out although it can be a bit difficult to navigate around. The rides are pretty good although not as good as SeaWorld. We had pre-booked Quick Queue tickets but to be honest most of...More

This is definitely a Division 2 Theme Park. If the weather is iffy, do not go. If you are from out of town do not take the chance, unless you can afford to lose the money. They shut down all attractions for "inclement weather" which...More
