Experiences exciting things together unites a family. Enjoy some family time in Tampa, conquer gigantic roller coasters and daring water slides – or just unwind with a float on the “Lazy River”.
Rollercoaster Marathon in “Bush Gardens”
In the heart of downtown Tampa is a world of adventure that you might not expect in such an area: Bush Gardens offers 112 acres of the craziest rides. Start your rollercoaster marathon in the “Tigris”, loop for loop your world will be turned upside down. Next stop: “Sheikra” – going down at a 90-degree angle! Those who decide to give “Cobra’s Curse” a go will embark on an exciting journey, because no two rides are the same. The youngest members of the family will find what they’re looking for in the world of Sesame Street: If you’re at least 96 centimetres tall, you can go on a safari tour with Grobi.
In a Land Before Time
It takes only half an hour to drive from Tampa to Plant City, and then travel back a few million years: At “Dinosaur World” you can admire hundreds of prehistoric carnivores and herbivores and then hunt around the 650-square-foot gift shop for one or two trophies to take home. What about the canine tooth of a T-Rex? The long-necked Brachiosaurus or Stegosaurus with a jagged shell is brought back to life by animation in the “Prehistoric Museum”. You’ll also hear original audios of the giants’ roars! Action is guaranteed: Children between the ages of three and twelve can dig up all kinds of shark teeth and bone fragments at “Fossil Dig”.
Once like Jack Sparrow, just once...
In Clearwater Beach bay, about 30 minutes by car fromTampa, a bright red pirate ship awaits, just like out of a picture book – fluttering skull flag included! It is ready at any time to set sail for a two-hour voyage to the Gulf of Mexico. “Captain Memo’s Pirate Cruise” awaits the whole family with treasure hunts, face painting, and water gun fights. If you’re lucky, you might see a school of dolphins swimming across the horizon at sunset.
