Rollercoaster Rides

Rollercoaster Rides

If you're looking for good things to do this weekend in Tampa why not do some rollercoaster rides! Florida residents get all kinds of deals and discounts to Busch Gardens, and the same thing goes for all of the Orlando Theme Parks. We decided to stay close as Busch Gardens has really improved over the years and it's big-time fun, with lots of music, spontaneous acts of humor, and it's perfect for a family. This stuff is outrageously great and we love to go fast.

Make sure you do little homework on the night before you get here. A great hit and what a treat for us locals. You can look at the event schedule on their website so you can be prepared.

Our take on the glory at the gardens concert series is that they have a big winner on their hands. This park is always adding new things to do and are really beefing up their act for the Tampa area residents. We got to see the band survivor, with eye of the tiger.

If you have a strategy ready to go, you will get more done and enjoy everything a lot better. Having a plan is a big deal when you go to any of the Theme Parks especially places like Epcot and Animal Kingdom over there in Orlando.

Bring the Kids

There are different themed areas to explore, all with a late 19th-century african motif. We like this for those with children, a nice birthday gift. The park offers a bunch of rides, live shows with singing entertainment, plenty of animal exhibits, shows, and games. Very good and a lot easier to get to than Animal Kingdom or Epcot.

Add it to the Must do Tampa list. I do like the Orlando parks, but we get the annual pass to Busch Gardens instead. Here, lines are much shorter here.
