BuschWaterGrass is the perfect place to live, especially during the summer. There are so many great things to do, and being only a short drive from Tampa, day-long trips are the perfect option. Busch Gardens has something to offer everyone in your family. With thrilling rides, shows, animal interactions and more, Busch Gardens is a great place to spend the day.

For the thrill seekers in your family be sure to hit all the rides offered. You’ll enjoy their brand new ride, Cheetah Hunt, that takes you from “0 to Cheetah” and allows you to feel like you are joining graceful cheetahs running across the Serengeti. This is part of the Cheetah Run exhibit, which will bring you face-to-face with the predator. Also, SheiKra, one of their best rides, will take you to speeds of more than 70 miles per hour. This ride also features a 200 foot climb and then exposes you to a 90-degree drop, where it stops to let you it all sink in before you drop straight toward the ground.

But if rides aren’t for you, don’t worry! Busch Gardens also has shows for your family to enjoy. For younger kids, Sesame Street 4-D is an option, along with many others for all age groups.

Don’t forget to check out the animals while you are there too! Rhino Rally, Bird Gardens, and Edge of Africa are just a few of the many animal attractions that are available.

According to a Trip Advisor user, “It’s a really a beautiful park. The landscape and animals are awesome. You will find something to do here for all ages.”

And for the hot days, check out Adventure Island, the Busch Gardens Water Park. Here you can float down the lazy river, hang out in the wave pool, be adventurous in Paradise Lagoon, or check out Splash Attack were you will wait for a 1,000 gallon bucket of water to empty over you. Your family will be having fun in the sun at Adventure Island in Busch Gardens this summer.

Be sure to check the Busch Gardens website for updates on summer events.
