Excursion to Busсh Gardens Park
The amusement park, which will be discussed below, is in the TOP 10 most visited amusement parks in the United States. This place is known not only for slides and adrenaline carousels: it is also one of the largest zoological centers in America. Busch Gardens welcomes at least 4,000,000 guests each year.
The total area of Busch Gardens reaches 150 hectares (together with the water park and concert venues). It is one of the oldest entertainment centers in Florida: the opening took place in 1959.
Themed areas of Busch Gardens
The leisure program includes 20 excursion routes and 8 slides. Adventure Island water park has 2 slides at its disposal.
Busch Gardens are decorated in an African style. For ease of navigation, the park is divided into thematic zones, most of which are named after African states. Each location tries to reflect the features of nature or the way of life of the "black continent". Here are simulated: savannas, jungles, desert area with Bedouin settlements. In each such "department" there are both attractions and platforms for exploring the animal and plant world.
The list of thematic areas of Busch Gardens:
The area is located directly at the main entrance. On the territory: Gwazi attraction, 2 cafes. The main location is the Mayomb Nature Reserve. This is a well-equipped giant paddock in which about two dozen primates live all year round: 6 gorillas and 10 chimpanzees.
The main transport hub of the entire park. A makeshift station has been made here, from which you can get to any thematic location on miniature tourist trains. As in Morocco, there are enclosures with monkeys, but we recommend looking at the places where crocodiles and alligators live. The Animal Care Center is also located here: guests of the park can observe the work of veterinarians and researchers.
In local Egypt, you will find a giant souvenir shopping center, which is stylized as a giant oriental bazaar. There is also an exact copy of a typical Bedouin settlement. Egypt is home to one of the park's most adrenaline-pumping rides, Montu. These are inverted slides, their height reaches 46 meters.

This part of the park is dedicated to cheetahs. Visit the huge paddock where a dozen of these jet-powered cats live, and then ride the crazy Cheetah Hunt roller coaster.
In this area you can admire the beauty of the park from a height. Several viewing platforms and rope bridges are equipped here. For those who wish, several zip-line slopes are available.

A giant water park with two huge slides and other extreme entertainment. There are countless pools, eateries and recreation areas with food outlets on the territory.
Vacationers are most interested in this sector, in which the most crazy rides are located: Fury of the Falcon, Phoenix, Caravan, Scorpion. The fury of the Falcon is recommended to the most desperate: in some sections, the speed of the trolley reaches 87 km / h, and the slopes reach 90º. Please note that some carousels are age-restricted, so not always
