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 (Rides)?

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.


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.
