Busch Gardens Food & Wine Festival

Drinks, Food, Animals and Coasters..Sign me up!

Have you been to Busch Gardens Tampa recently? There are so many fun things going on in the park!

Busch Gardens Tampa are the leaders in all things “thrilling” in Florida! Here is some of there amazing rides they have:

Falcon’s Fury, riders plunge 335 feet face-down toward earth getting a first-hand experience of how a Falcon dives for prey.

SheiKra was North America’s first dive coaster that sends riders through a breathtaking three-minute journey 200 feet up to the edge of a 90 degree drop.

Opening this spring will be Tigris, Florida’s tallest launch coaster with forward and backward launches, a 150-foot surge, and inverted roll - at more than 60 mph. Can't wait for this to open! I will definitely be first in line!

Busch Gardens Tampa also has a ton of other rides for you to checkout while you're there.

They are also celebrating there 60th Anniversary, and to celebrate with all of there guests they are offering two free beer samples in the #YearofBeer . As a nostalgic nod to the parks roots as a brewery, you can get two free samples of beer at Garden Gate Café or Serengeti Overlook Restaurant and Pub while visiting.

The 60th Anniversary isn’t limited to free beer. Busch Gardens is celebrating all year long with 52 weeks of events. Starting with Tampa’s premier spring festival, the Food & Wine Festival! The Food & Wine Festival runs on weekends through April 28, with an all-star concert line-up and an amazing menu. Ticket admission includes the concerts, but Food & Wine samples are additional cost, the best way to test all of the amazing offers is a sampler lanyard. You can get a lanyard for 5 samples, 8 samples or 12 samples. You can also purchase items a la carte!

I got to try so many amazing foods while there and was also able to enjoy the Three Doors Down concert on Saturday while indulging in all the different beers, wines and foods! Great music and delicious food/drinks? What gets better than that?

Busch Gardens Tampa is also one of the United States largest zoos! They are not only accredited by the AZA but also recently Humane Certified® by American Humane, which means the care of there animals is exemplary across the world! My husband had to take me away from the adorable wallabies and kangaroos. I didn't want to leave them! I mean look how sweet they are.

There were so many cool animal habitats to check out throughout the park!

I had so much fun and I am already planning my next visit! Have you been to Busch Gardens Tampa recently? If not check out there website for the rest of the Food & Wine Festival concert line-ups and start planning your trip!
