Today we travelled to Tampa home of Busch Gardens, this can be included on the flex ticket option and well worth a visit. Its only about hour and half from Orlando and the queues are not always as long. Think the longest we queued was 45 mins and alot we walked straight on.

It is not all thrill seeking rides but has 3 water rides, in which you will get wet and lots of animals to see, with childrens rides as well.

There are Gwazi, Sheikra, Kumba, Montu, Cheetah Hunt, Phoenix, Scorpion and Sandserpent. Cheetah Hunt is the newest with Sheikra most thrilling!

3 Water rides, Stanley Falls Flume, Tanaganyika Tidal Wave and Congo River Rapids. A piece of advice take spare clothes and put in a locker, this is only $7 and well worth it, nothing more horrible than to drive home in wet clothes!

There is also the Serengeti Plain, which is home to lots of animals, you can see this by either taking the train around the whole park (included in admission) or pay extra for a Serengeti Safari about $33.95, this takes you around the plains on the back of a open truck, and you can even feed the giraffes.

Again they do refillable mugs, but they do accept the ones from Seaworld so can save you $6.99.

We were luckily enough to be at the lion enclosure at feeding time, so check out the daily timetable for that.
