Busch Gardens

Busch Gardens Tampa Bay School Trip

From Wildlife to Wild Rides you'll find yourself on the edge of Africa at Busch Gardens in Tampa Bay.

Experience up-close encounters with amazing animals, take an unforgettable safari across the Serengeti Plains, test your courage on pulse-pounding roller coasters, take in a stage show, and colorful live entertainment all year long.

Jump into the jungle at Jungala.  Get face-to-face with orangutans.  Test your strength in a wild game of tug-of-war with a tiger: any guess who will win?

Explore the layers of the jungle in a three-story play area of mazes, ropes and crawl tubes.  And kids can soar above the treetops on a zip line.  It's the only jungle in the world that plays with you!

If you're looking for thrills, challenge our incredible, floorless dive coaster, SheiKra: 200 feet up, 90 degrees straight down.  Take on the mighty Gwazi: a colossal wooden coaster with a record-breaking six fly-bys and crossing speeds of 100 miles an hour.  Or take on Kumba, a roaring steel coaster that will leave you breathless.
