When were you there? What was the best ride? Have you been on Sheikra? Have you heard of Sheikra? Did you look at the animals?

I was born and raised in central Florida...oh yes! I have been to Busch Gardens!!! :) But I did not go for the rides. The rides have always made me ill because of my migraines I have suffered since 7 years old. But I absolutely loved the animals!!! When I went there, they had a panda and I just didn't want to leave the area! She was so beautiful. But sadly, I had gone with school and could not stay longer as I wanted. One day, I hope to be able to go back to take more pictures as I do photography now. But also, I no longer live in Florida...so, I do not know when that will be. :(

Wow they had a panda? They don't any more. Too bad. We have year passes... they do a special thing know where they debit you monthly a very small amount to have annual passes. My favorite thing is the sky buckets... we ride across all the animals. I also love all the lemurs and squirrel monkeys... and the white tigers.

I have been there but it hasn't been for seven years or something. It was so much fun, I know that, and I have pictures to remind me. I know I was a really big fan of one of the coasters but the name is forgotten. It went over alligators and I had a keychain with a picture in it from the ride.

That would be Montu... they took the alligators out... I guess people were throwing stuff at them.

Yeah, that's the ride. I thought it was a little scary to have alligators there. I'm sure that wasn't a good situation.

I had annual passes to Busch Gardens the last four years or so. I love going on Sheikra. I also like Hallow Scream.

I have been there several times since I live only an hour drive from it. I haven't though gone in the last couple of years, money has been too tight. It is a great place with a lot of things to enjoy. The animals, the shows, and of course the rides. If you like roller coasters they have some good ones. I haven't been on Sheikra but I have been on some of their others and they are great. Tanganika Tidal Wave is a lot of fun :) I might have the spelling wrong on it but you'll find it if you go. Just standing on the bridge to watch people go on the ride is a blast.

Sheikra is the best! It's such a smooth ride. I can ride it 12 times in a row without getting sick.

I have only been to Busch Gardens one time, although I live only 30 miles away! Planning a trip real soon.

I have not been to the one in Florida, but I have been to the one in Virginia. Many years ago. My favorites were the roller coasters. I loved all the animals! It was a very nice experience!

I went to Busche Gardens like 6 years ago. They didn't have the Sheikra yet. Yes, I have heard of it lol. I love to look at the animals. I didn't really get on the rides because, well, I'm too chicken. I haven't been loosened up at the Hospitality House there before, so let me get a lil booze, then throw me on a ride. I won't get sick on you, as long as you arent behind me, or beside me lol.

Chicken! Sheikra is really a blast. You shouldn't be so scared. They are very safe.

I have, but it was many years ago...over 20. I'm sure the place looks totally different now. At the time, the animals were my favorite part.

Oh I'm sure it definately looks a lot different. It's changed so much since my first time going in 1994 :)

No, I haven't been to Busch Gardens yet. I haven't even been to Florida yet. Where is Busch Gardens? I have a close friend in Tampa (he is a mutual friend of my fiance and I) and we would like to go to Tampa to see him, some day.

Busch Gardens is in Tampa. You should go if you make it down to visit your friend. It's fun and the animals and gardens are quite nice too.
