Busch Gardens Tampa is an animal theme park located in the City of Tampa in Florida. The park is spread over an area of 335 acre and was established in the middle of the 19th century – the exact date is Mar 31, 1959. The park is also known as Busch Gardens Africa.
The famous places of the Busch Gardens Tampa include staircase to the stars (a staircase that takes guest to the Brewery roof) and a bird garden.
The place was admission free and had a variety of beer tastings for the guests. But now the administration charged money as new rides have been installed. Now the Busch Gardens is known for roller coaster rides.
Busch Gardens opened 29 acre Serengeti plains in 1965 that allowed African wildlife to roam freely in the area. The area today provides exotic animals, amusement for visitors and tropical landscape.
Busch Gardens is supported by a sister water park that is spread around 30 acre but the size of the sister park is no match in comparison with the 365 acre giant. Busch Gardens compete with other water parks in Florida and charge almost the same amount.
The water park is also under the administration of SeaWorld entertainment. It is accredited by the association of Zoo and Aquarium.
The park made it in the list of top 20 places of USA and top 25 places of the world visited that year as it hosted around 4.3 million people.
During holidays in November and December the park takes on the theme of Christmas. The whole park is decorated with Christmas lights and one of the most favored attractions of people the Snow world is opened to the public.
