Both a theme park and a zoo, Busch Gardens offers a mixture of roller-coaster rides, live shows, dining, shopping, and interactive activities with animals. Opened in 1959 with an African theme, the park now shelters nearly 12,000 animals, spread over 130 hectares (330 acres). You can choose to be an animal keeper for a day or take guided, behind-the-scenes tours of the animal care center, where you can learn how the park's veterinary staff cares for the zoo's residents. The theme park also offers ziplines and water rides. Take advantage of considerable savings by booking your tickets online, and choose from a range of dining and park experiences.

  • Just go youl love it .. Trust me
  • Cool rollercoasters and awsome gifts shops
  • Really cool and awesome
  • The Park is in the town of Lid away from Orlando. Valley for rides Sheikra, Cheetah Hunt, Cobra's curse, Kumba, Muntu, Sand Serpent, Scorpion. Huge queues. If you would like to be able to buy the "stick line" a little pricey. But it's worth visiting

  • Perfect for anyone who loves extreme attractions like roller coasters. There are flamingos to enjoy, also nice for children above 8 years less than that doesn't make a lot of the Park. Ideal for teenagers and adults.
