Busch Gardens Tampa Celebrates 60th Anniversary With a Whole Year of Fun

Busch Gardens Tampa is gearing up for a special year in 2019, celebrating the 60th anniversary of the theme park.  We already know that the park is currently building Tigris, which will be Florida's tallest launch roller coaster and hit speeds of around 60 miles per hour when it opens.  But, to help celebrate the anniversary the whole year, Busch Gardens Tampa is planning a series of special events and celebrations for all visitors.

Firstly, the park will honor a old tradition all season long by offering all guests, of age of course, up to two free beer samples during their day at the park.  The promotion honors the park's history as opening as a beer garden, and guests can enjoy their samples at either the Serengeti Overlook Pub or the Garden Gate Cafe.  Busch Gardens was once known widely for their beer samples, having a brewery on site didn't hurt that, and we're sure that guests will enjoy the "year of beer" as the park is calling it.

In order to keep the festivities going, Busch Gardens Tampa will blanket the whole year with festivals and special events, with something going on all 52 weeks of the year.

The events cover a wide variety of themes, some surrounding holidays such as Howl-O-Scream and Christmas Town, while other focusing on food and beverage, like Bier Fest and the Busch Gardens Food & Wine Festival.

Other celebrations include the Safari of Fun kids weekends, a special visits from Guy Harvey and Jack Hanna and Summer Nights, complete with extended park hours and dance parties.  To learn more about all the events and their details, click here for more.
