Tickets and Fun Cards

Pay For A Day, Play All Year

★★★★★

“It was nice to have a weekend away (following social distancing guidelines of course). Busch Gardens is probably the most underrated and deserves more recognition with the safety measures they have in place and how they aren’t afraid to enforce them to keep everyone safe. Our visit started with a mandatory temperature check, and then countless clear-to-read signage. Not to mention the handwashing stations set up everywhere. Made us get an Annual Pass because it was such an amazing experience.”

What are you doing to protect the animals in your care from SARS-CoV-2 (the virus that causes COVID-19)?

The health and welfare of the animals in our care is always of the utmost importance, and we continue to monitor developments regarding SARS-CoV-2 closely. Our experts are following the recommendations of veterinary and public health officials including the American Veterinary Medical Association and the CDC, as we learn more about how SARS-CoV-2 relates to animal health. 

Our veterinarians are continuously reviewing the most current science and animal health information as well as our response plans that have been developed with feedback from outside animal experts including veterinarians, epidemiologists, and virologists. We are also increasing preventative health screenings during this time. 

Out of an abundance of caution, teams working with animals such as felines and primates are using additional personal protective equipment. Any new information provided by public health or veterinary professionals is reviewed daily by our animal care experts to determine whether the risk to animal health has changed.

 

How long will these protocols be in place?

These protocols and guidelines serve as enhancements to our existing standard operating procedures due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The protocols and guidelines will be modified based on evolving industry standards and methodologies, public health, and governmental directives, and advancing scientific knowledge on the transmissibility of COVID-19.

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 Services 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.
