Busch Gardens: The Dark Continent – Tampa, Florida
Sights that take your breath away!
Take your seat in the dazzling Moroccan Palace to experience “Kaleidoscope” — our spectacular new song and dance revue. (Photo on cover.) At Busch Gardens, the entertainment never stops!
Hop aboard the Monorail, Skyride or the Trans-Veldt Railroad to track down one of the largest collections of free-roaming animals in the United States — herds of zebra, giraffe, gazelle and antelope, rare black rhinos, stately lions, Cape Buffalo, and more — on the Serengeti Plain.
Rides that make you roar!
Scream on The Scorpion, our wild, looping coaster… hold on through The Python’s’ 360 degree loops. Fly with The Phoenix… swirl with The Sandstorm…cruise on the African Queen… hang on to the Monstrous Mamba… ride the white water of the Congo River Rapids… then plunge down Florida’s longest flume — the Stanley Falls.
Fun that never ends!
Dance in the streets to the big brass sound of The Mystic Sheiks of Morocco… polka with the Bavarian Colony Dancers and Band in the 1200-seat Festhaus… fall under the spell of our beautiful belly dancers and snake charmers. And don’t miss the excitement of all-time favorites… Dolphins of the Deep and the colorful Bird Show.
Animals that tickle your fancy!
See the antics of elephants taking a bath in their new home … let the kids ride aboard a real live elephant. Glimpse rare white Bengal tigers. Enjoy tropical birds of every kind. Make friends with some of our gentler animals in the petting zoo. And be sure to see our new nursery — it’s bigger than ever and full of delightful, exotic baby animals.
