I can’t tell you how hard it is to actually just come up with only fourteen things you need to know about Busch Gardens Tampa because it is so incredible. Whittling down this post was so hard because Busch Gardens Tampa is quite the destination.
This was our first time to Busch Gardens. I was really curious as to how we would fare comparing it to other parks. We travel so much and have been to so many parks. However, this is a very nice family destination that offers something for everyone.
Honestly, my kids were at the perfect age to enjoy wish Gardens in Tampa from the coasters to the food and everything in between we truly enjoyed our day.
My tween and teens definitely got their ride on, found adventure, enjoyed shows. They experienced a Safari and of course, ate their way through the park. Even better look at the smiles, a rarity on tweens and teens.
How better to bring a smile to teens and a tween than to give them passes to Busch Gardens. They experienced it all. Lavishly live travel out loud. Join in as I offer up 14 Things You Need To Know About Busch Gardens Tampa.
14 Things You Need To Know About Busch Gardens Tampa
With our tickets in hand, and the ticketing centers waiting for us, we walked right up and scan our tickets. In addition, I had purchased a few all day passes for dining which was probably one of the smartest things I have ever done. We scanned our tickets and we went right through the entrance gates and that is where the adventure begins.
#1 The Food
Breakfast began calling our name and that is where this adventure shall begin. We were standing in Morocco and then it hit me we were by the Zagora Café. Not certain if my son with food allergies could eat we did not buy him a dining pass, we simply purchased his food.
My other kids had dining passes and they had a blast with it they went up and got themselves breakfast and we grabbed seats. There were no lines and there were plenty of choices. The food was Fantabulous. Toast, juice, desserts, putting, Jell-O, fruit, coffee or tea there was anything you could really desire and I’m so impressed that there were no lines.

#3 Side-Tracked with SheiKra
As we continued down the path we came upon Stanleyville. In Stanleyville there is Sheikra– it is a coaster that coaster fanatics crave. This is a 200 feet up and a 90° straight down with a zero floor ride. My husband and my boys saddled up for this one and they could not get enough it is such an adrenaline rush. Thankfully the lines were light so they got to ride it multiple times!

The kids rode the Cheetah Hunt a few times and while they did, we walked through the Crown Colony Pub, yet another restaurant option on the All-Day Dining Option.
