Our first visit to Busch Gardens was last spring when my in-laws visited, and since my husband and I are Florida residents we enjoy free visits to Busch Gardens all year long after just that one visit! Needless to say, we've tried making the most of our tickets over this past year. This last visit was a productive one. I actually brought along my dSLR camera this time and snapped some photos of the rides and animals. I hope you'll enjoy the pictures.

Sheikra, one of our favorite rides in the park!
the skyride offers a relaxing trip above the park and views of animals and rides too

snap photos quickly, they're fast!
you can pet the kangaroos, they don't seem to mind
We spent the majority of the day at Busch Gardens. Visiting on a week day in the fall most definitely has some benefits. The temperatures were hot but not unbearable. Plus the lines for rides were fairly short, and we managed to ride four roller coasters in about 40 minutes. The only ride with a big line was the train, but that's only because it was closed all morning due to a rhino giving birth on the tracks. It was another fun day at Busch Gardens!
I also took tons of photos of the birds in Lory Landing. There are so many pictures I want to share those next week. Come back on Monday for plenty of pictures of these beautiful birds.
Do you have a local place you enjoy
visiting over and over again?
