Excitement Reaches Beyond The Orlando Theme Parks

TAMPA BAY’S FAVORITE SPRING FESTIVAL

In 2020, a world of taste awaits at the sixth annual Food & Wine Festival.

The festival features new and exciting dishes, plus a large selection of wines, craft brews and cocktails. Some of the biggest acts in musical entertainment will take the stage every weekend on Festival Field. All concerts are included with daily ticketed admission to the park. Artists from KC & The Sunshine Band to Clint Black will be headlining on select Saturdays and Sundays at 6pm.

Food and beverage is not included with park admission and is available for an extra fee. Guests must be 21 years of age or older to consume alcoholic beverages.

SOLAR VORTEX: AMERICA’S FIRST DUAL TAILSPIN WATERSLIDE

Looking to beat the heat AND take on maximum thrills the whole family can enjoy? Adventure Island’s newest attraction, Solar Vortex, is just what you’re looking for. This high-thrill family raft slide combines high-banking rotations and rapid descents, sending sliders on a swirling journey through two open tailspin features. Guests will splash through three AquaLucent™ experiences while sliding to speeds up to 20 miles per hour.

CHEETAH CUBS: THE MOST ADORABLE REASON TO VISIT

Have you been able to catch a viewing of the cutest new additions to our cheetah family? Since their official debut, guests have been able to check in with these precious brothers and their care team daily at the Animal Care Center. We suggest stopping by in the morning for the latest playtime schedule each day. Fans can also follow them on Busch Gardens social media channels for additional updates as the cubs prepare to make their debut at Cheetah Run.

IRON GWAZI – NEED WE SAY MORE?

If you haven’t heard of North America’s tallest and the world’s fastest and steepest hybrid coaster by now, you might be living under a rock… but don’t worry. We’re here to catch you up to speed (quite literally). With a 206 foot-tall peak, 91-degree drop, and top speeds reaching up to 76 miles per hour, Iron Gwazi is definitely a “must-ride” for 2020 – even USA Today agrees.

Get the latest on Iron Gwazi’s construction from Andrew Schaffer, Project Manager of Design & Engineering.

It will definitely be an awesome spring and summer for the Mayne Mafia as we check out all of the new rides, fun food and beverages and have some fun at Busch Gardens Tampa Bay.
