Busch Gardens is both an amusement park and animal park in Tampa, Florida. While there is also a Busch Gardens in Williamsburg, Virginia, the one in Florida is the original and arguably the best. The park first opened on March 31, 1959, and featured beer tasting, birds, and an escalator to the roof of the brewery.
Since opening in the late 1950s the park has grown and expanded and is currently one of the top 20 amusement parks in the US and within the top 25 in the world. There are a huge number of themed areas in the park, transporting guests from Asia to Africa in a matter of steps.
