Busch Gardens Tampa Attractions

Roller Coasters

Rollercoasters are where Busch Gardens excels. You won’t find a more varied collection of roller coasters in Florida.

Dark Rides

With weather this balmy most attractions are outdoors.  There are currently no dark rides at Busch Gardens sadly.

Thrill Rides

Thrills tend to come on rails at Busch Gardens but there are a couple of standout thrill rides that provide a little variety.

Children's Rides

Generally concentrated on one area but gradually new development and investment is spreading the fun around the park.

Water Rides

Despite the blessing of space and great weather, water attractions tend to be left to Adventure Island opposite.

Shows

While you’re not going to find the variety and frequency of shows that Disney offers, what you will find is excellent quality.
