Frequently Asked Question about Rides

Expand All
When are rides closed for maintenance?

For the safety of our guests, attractions occasionally close for improvements and general maintenance. Please refer to our Closure Schedule before your visit.

What are the attraction restrictions?

Some Rides restrictions are posted at each ride, and all guests including those using wheelchairs must meet the requirements. Please see a park ambassador at the ride if you have any questions.

What accommodations are available for guests with special needs?

Busch Gardens is committed to providing all guests with a safe and enjoyable experience. Busch Gardens features more than 50 thrilling rides, shows and attractions. There is fun and adventure for the entire family. We make every effort to ensure that all guests can have an enjoyable experience.


Guest Relations: Guest Relations is situated inside the park entrance at Adventure Outpost, on the left hand side as you enter the park. Guests with disabilities are welcome to stop by Guest Relations for any assistance they require.


Parking: Parking for guests with disabilities is available in Lot A near the main entrance on a first-come, first-served basis for guests with a legal parking permit. This parking area is designated by blue-striped parking lanes. All spaces are van-accessible. Vehicles parked in disabled parking without a permit are subject to applicable laws.


Wheelchair & Stroller RentalReserve a wheelchair or stroller online. Wheelchairs and Electric Convenience Vehicles (ECV's) may be rented at Stroller Rental near the front gate of the park in Morocco. Wheelchairs and ECV's are available for a nominal fee on a "first-come, first served" basis to guests with disabilities. Guests may also use their own wheelchairs or single passenger ECV's. Guests using wheelchairs may join any admissions line to enter the park. Use of Segways is not permitted at Busch Gardens.


Restrooms: Companion restroom facilities are situated in the Egypt, Nairobi, Congo, Sesame Street® Safari of Fun™ areas, and First Aid.


First Aid: The main First Aid station is located on the right (west) side of the Dragon Fire Grill restaurant near the Scorpion® roller coaster in Pantopia. Skyride First Aid is located in the Skyride building near the restrooms, directly next to the Edge of Africa entrance. Registered nurses and emergency medical technicians staff our First Aid centers during park hours. Over-the-counter medications are available at select gift shops for purchase. Ambassadors throughout the park can call for medical assistance if a guest requires assistance.


Service Animals: Service animals are welcome at Busch Gardens. All service animals must remain on a leash or in a harness at all times. Safety requirements prevent service animals going on rides other than the parking lot trams, Skyride and the Serengeti Express Train. Service animals are the responsibility of the owner and cannot be left unattended. Guests are responsible for behavior control and the cleanup of service animal waste. Busch Gardens park ambassadors are not permitted to care for service animals.


Phones: Public telephones are located throughout the park. TDD phones are located at the Guest Relations Information Center in the Moroccan Village. Use of TDD phones is complimentary.


Show Scripts: Scripts are available at Guest Relations for all of our shows and for the Serengeti Express Train.


Sign-Language Interpreters: A sign-language interpreter may be available for your day at Busch Gardens, with advance notice. Please contact Guest Relations at BGA.GuestInformation@BuschGardens.com to ask about scheduling an interpreter at least two weeks prior to your visit.


Assistive Listening Devices: Assistive Listening Devices are available at most theaters and at Guest Relations. These infrared listening aids amplify the volume of the performance for guests who have difficulty hearing. Please ask  park ambassadors at these locations for assistance.


Ride Information for Physically Challenged Guests: At Busch Gardens, safety is the only consideration that takes precedence over fun. Thrill rides by their very nature create forces and speeds that may not be acceptable to some people, and may cause injury to some riders with preexisting health conditions.

In general, all riders must be in good health. Those who have had recent surgery, expectant mothers, those with high blood pressure, heart conditions, neck or back problems and those with any impairment or condition that would prevent normal seating or use of safety restraints as provided, should not board.

Riders must be able to remain sitting up straight, keep their head erect, their back and shoulders against the seat back and their hands, arms, legs and feet down and inside the ride at all times. Each ride has its own restriction sign at the ride entrance. Please review these closely.


Visually Impaired Guests: Those guests with visual impairments must have someone (a companion or park ambassador) read the ride restrictions to them prior to boarding.


Casts and Limb Braces: Guests with casts or limb braces will be restricted from riding certain rides where the cast or brace may present a hazard to the guest or others. Please consult with our Guest Relations representative for more information or if in doubt about your ability to safely experience a ride. 

Guests with hard casts cannot ride KumbaMontu or SheiKra. 


Ride Accessibility: At Busch Gardens Tampa Bay, safety is the only consideration that takes precedence over fun. Guests who have physical conditions that would prevent normal seating or use of the safety restraints should not board the following rides:

Guests with limited physical ability should be able to continuously grasp lap bars and/or railings, maintain themselves independently in an upright position and be able to absorb sudden and dramatic movements on the attractions listed above.

During the evacuation of any ride, ambulatory guests may be removed before those guests requiring assistance. Guests accept any additional risk associated with an emergency evacuation.
