Busch Gardens Florida Vacation Information

Updated on February 21, 2012

Have a Great Family Vacation

At Busch Gardens, animals roam free and you are the outsider. You can see the park by monorail, cable car or train. Roller coasters, wild animals, entertaining shows, rides, food, shopping, sightseeing, bird shows, exotic flowers, train rides, Serengeti adventures, river rapids... the list goes on. Wear comfy walking shoes and spend the day at this 300-acre park. Their main website is at www.buschgardens.com.

Gwazi Roller Coster:

It is Busch Gardens Tampa Bay's mammoth double wooden coaster. It is also the Southeast's largest and fastest double wooden roller coaster boasting more than 1.25 million board feet of lumber and over 2 million bolted connections. Named after a fabled lion with a tiger's head, Gwazi races riders through almost 7,000 feet of track and is two distinct coasters intertwined:

  • The Gwazi Tiger has an element that gives riders a slalom sensation more like a bobsled than a wooden coaster.
  • The Gwazi Lion's highlight is a seemingly continuous number of spirals.

Pirates 4-D

A swashbuckling 4-D comedy adventure for the entire family - invades the Timbuktu Theater. Pirates 4-D, starring Leslie Nielsen, combines the latest 4-D special-effects technology with multi-sensory theater effects to thrill guests of all ages. Guests experience sprays of water and a shipload of surprises during their adventure with the sea's most hapless band of pirates.
