Busch Gardens is a unique park combination of zoo, gardens, and amusement rides. Our experience was shortened by a tropical rain storm, so perhaps it wasn't the typical. I found the park difficult to navigate as it is so spread out. There is a train that circles the park, however the stops are few and far between--there are no shortcuts from one area to another, and the park is huge with quite a distance between the different themed areas. Go with power walking shoes, cool clothing, and lots of time. The beautiful landscapes are lost if you are just there for the amusement rides. Orlando parks beat this park hands down for excitement, shows, and overall better managed parks.
