Best Boutique Hotel near Busch Gardens

With a guest room or suite at Hotel Cabana, you’re only about an hour away from one of the best-known and most popular theme parks in the country: Busch Gardens Tampa Bay.

Introducing Busch Gardens Tampa Bay

Part of the SeaWorld Parks & Entertainment family, Busch Gardens Tampa Bay has been a major attraction in the Sunshine State since 1959.

This sprawling 335-acre facility combines a theme park with one of the biggest zoos in the country and home to more than 200 different species from all over the world. Kangaroos and penguins to two-toed sloths and meerkats, Nile crocodiles and Komodo dragons to ostriches and bald eagles, African lions and Bengal tigers to chimpanzees and orangutans: There’s nothing like seeing birds and beasts from wide-ranging global ecosystems up close and personal, and that’s one of the prime draws of Busch Gardens.

The animal experiences here include a variety of interactive, hands-on encounters and special viewings, plus the unique open-air tour of the park’s Serengeti Plain®, host to free-roaming giraffes, zebras, and other East African wildlife.

Busch Gardens Tampa Bay is also for thrill seekers, with its massive roller coasters and other amusement rides. Next year will see a major debut in that department: the opening of Iron Gwazi, set to be the tallest hybrid coaster in North America and the fastest and steepest in the world.

If you’re in the mood for some live entertainment beyond the majesty and antics of the resident fauna, you have a plethora of shows to choose from, including Storytime at Sesame Street – Safari of FunRock a Doo Wop, and Critters Inn Charge, which features rescued cats, dogs, and other furry and feathered buddies.

Howl-O-Scream at Busch Gardens
