Busch Gardens Tampa 2012This is a large park with lots to see and do so we have compiled a list of the top 10 things you should make a point to see and do while you are at Busch Gardens Tampa Bay.

10)  Pirates 4-D – This is a comedy adventure that takes place at select times in the Timbuktu 4-D Theater.  It is a fun twist on Home Alone with a pirate theme that the entire family is sure to enjoy.


Busch Gardens Tampa 20129)  Myombe Reserve – This is a walk-through viewing of gorillas and chimpanzees in a lush rainforest habitat.  While it is near the main entrance it is easy to pass by and not even notice.  The shaded walkways along the lush vegetation is a nice break from the Florida heat.

Busch Gardens Tampa 20125)  Cheetah Hunt – This is Busch Gardens Tampa Bay’s newest roller coaster.  Despite the three launches it is a mild and fun roller coaster that everybody can enjoy.
