My family loves how it was zoo and rides together. We had the all day meal and it was hard to find somewhere to eat. When we did find a restaurant, it was 1 hour wait to get up to server

Fun but a waste of money
Jasmine_M

I loved the rides especially for my first time riding a roller coaster. But it was not as fun because I wasted my money going. Most of the roller coasters were temporarily closed and there was a 2 hour wait for mostly all of the rides. I didn’t get to use my 2nd park ticket to adventure island because of how long I had to wait in lines for the rides so I wasted over $130 just to get on 3 rides in 9 hours....worst first experience.

Wrong bookings by Viator

Paid for, printed tickets as done in previous years. Unfortunately the bar code said Sea World but this reference to this email and printed tickets said Busch Gardens which is what was unexpected. Several phone calls later after an hour, we were finally given access to Busch Gardens. Not a good experience whatsoever.

Really enjoyed our partial day there. Wished we had more time, had to catch a flight. Loved the animals and great gift shops. Paid for all day dine but didn't really have enough time to get money's worth.

The hard part for us was how far we had to walk to rent a motorized wheel chair, and no transportation from handicapped or preferred parking lot to the entrance. My husband and I have mobility problems. They need to have a smaller pickup transport from the preferred and handicapped parking.
