Family Friendly Fun at Busch Gardens Tampa

Disclosure - I was provided free tickets to visit Busch Gardens Tampa with my family as part of a Busch Gardens Ambassador program with Mom Central. All experiences of the park and opinions are my own. 

I LOVE living in Florida. With so much sun and warm weather we have countless opportunities for family fun in the outdoors. One of our favorite family pastimes is visiting theme parks.  FL has so many outdoor attractions to choose from. There's something to do at every turn but our little family loves a good thrill. Nothing provides a better thrill than a theme park adventure. One of our favorite amusement park destinations is Busch Gardens in Tampa, Florida. 

If you've never been to Busch Gardens or haven't visited in a while, you are missing out on a good time for the whole family. I'll be honest and say that I hadn't been to Busch Gardens in a few years and my girls had never been to Busch Gardens Tampa. As a family we had visited Busch Gardens Williamsburg while on vacation a few years ago and had a great time so we were excited to explore the park closer to home. 

With summer vacation officially underway we thought it would be wonderful to head out for a weekend road trip on a Busch Gardens Tampa adventure.

The Lil Divas were super excited to get on all the rides, see the sights and shows and just enjoy an awesome theme park day. We were not disappointed! There is so much to do at Busch Gardens Tampa and the girls, at 7 and 8 years old, were at an ideal age/height to ride almost everything. 

There are tons of attractions at Busch Gardens Tampa. I'll share some of our favorite rides and shows with you from our visit.  

I LOVE roller coasters so I made sure I rode as many as I could! I was disappointed that Falcon's Fury wasn't open yet as originally scheduled. I had been looking forward to riding it - next time for sure! I did get to ride the Scorpion, Cheetah Hunt, Gwazi, Kumba, SheiKra and Montu. The thrill seeker in me was so happy - I was plunging, looping, twisting & turning to my hearts content. 

The Lil Divas couldn't get on all the roller coasters (that was mommy's terrain for the day!) but they were able to ride a few and there were lots of other kid friendly attractions for them to explore like Treetop Trails a 3-story family play area perfect for kids (and kids at heart) to climb, crawl and explore to their hearts content. Once we were able to pry them from that play area we had a great time riding the Wild Surge, the Jungle Flyers, Air Grover, Congo River Rapids and the Tanganyika Tidal Wave to name a few of our favorites. 

For little ones, Sesame Street's Safari of Fun is definitely a part of the park you do not want to miss. There are rides, a splash pad, a tree house,  character meet & greets, shows and lots of fun playground areas that will undoubtedly thrill your Sesame Street fans. 

What I love about Busch Gardens is that even if you're not into thrill rides, there is so much to see. It really is fun for people of all ages. There are some wonderful animal habitats/exhibits, shows and opportunities for up-close encounters with amazing animals (additional fees are applicable). 

It was truly a wonderful day for the whole family
at Busch Gardens Tampa!

Wishing you lots of summer fun & adventures,
