Busch Gardens Tampa has teamed up with International Plaza to create a one-of-a-kind children’s play area, offering many of the iconic structures of Florida’s thrill leader.

“This is a great partnership, and as the Tampa Bay area’s No. 1 family theme park, we’re excited to bring a little bit of adventure into the community for all families to experience each and every day,” said Busch Gardens Park President Jim Dean.  “This will be a fully immersive experience for kids, highlighting the exciting elements you’d find at the park.”

The new Busch Gardens children’s play area will be free to all guests at International Plaza and Bay Street and include several animal stars such as hippos, a baby elephant, baby lions and an alligator, as well as a train, safari truck and a 14-foot Cheetah Hunt Tower.  The area will also include a 70-inch TV showcasing all of the exciting adventures that await guests at Busch Gardens.

The new play area will be under construction from Sept. 14-19, and end with a grand opening event for the community on Sept. 20.
