Bush Gardens Tampa Bay Blogger Ambassador Review Part 1

So I was super excited when I was offered the opportunity to be a Bush Gardens Blogger. What is that you ask?? Well I get to go to the park with my family and basically tell you what the park is all about and we had a great time this day enjoying everything. This was the kids first time going and they loved it!!! We weren't able to do everything so we will be going back!!!

When we first came in Jordyn was able to take a photo with this guy and she loved it and was so excited. This day was so beautiful out the weather turned out so nice and I was actually worried about it raining. 

Getting our tickets from the Quick Ticket booth was a breeze very easy to navigate. We had no problems at all. And as you can see Jordyn is really excited to get the day started!!

Next I would love to tell you about their new ride called Falcon's Fury let me tell you this ride looks amazing however I did chicken out we will be going again so maybe next time I will go.  what does it do you ask?? Well it is a free-standing Sky Jump drop tower attraction the ride reaches a maximum height of 335 feet (102 m), is North America's tallest free-standing drop tower and the first drop tower to use 90-degree tilting seats (facing riders straight down). Riders experience about five seconds of free fall, reaching a speed of 60 miles per hour (97 km/h). The ride's name was chosen to invoke a falcon's ability to dive steeply at high speed to capture prey.

This is when the ride comes down the drop is pretty quick it basically shoots down super quick and then as it gets toward the bottom it just kind of stops!!! Anyone who likes that type of rush will love this ride. 

They had some beautiful flowers in boats in the water and Jordyn wanted to pose by them. She is a mess she is so prissy. But I can tell you she loved Bush Gardens a lot both children did. 

All the birds were so beautiful. I loved looking at all the animals and the kids enjoyed it also.

They have this area you go in to see all the birds and they fly all around you. They also had a little pond where there were ducks swimming around it was so cute.

This had to be one of my favorite parts of the park ever!!! I am a huge owl fan and would of loved to take this home with me. It was so beautiful as my husband kept walking past it the owl would follow him I was in love!!

My daughter wanted to take him or her home not sure which one it was a female or male no one was around to ask. 

The ducks loved the water and the kids enjoyed watching them swim and were fascinated by them. 

This was so beautiful and colorful I had to get a photo of it. This is the area where all the birds ducks and owl were in. 

Next it was off walking around looking at the different things to do. Can you believe we have lived in Fl all our life and in the Tampa Bay area and have never been to Bush Gardens like this during the day??? We have only came to the park at night for there Howl O Scream which by the way don't miss out it's coming up at the end of the month!!!

Make sure to check it out opens on September 26- Nov 1st tickets range for $45 to $65 dollars depending on what day you go. Check the calendar here !!

My daughter had no clue what was in store for her my husband put her right by the ride SheiKra and this is where they go right through the water so she got soaked actually both kid's did and they loved it. It was so hot that day and I'm sure it felt great. 

These pictures are priceless you can tell she had so much fun and wasn't expecting it. This was one of the highlights of my day. This was very memorable. 

This is one of my favorite photos of the whole day!!!

One happy girl!!

Next was off to the Sesame Street Safari of Fun show this show was super cute for the kid's the characters came out in the audience when the show started and sang about 3 or 4 songs and everyone in the audience was dancing along very upbeat and entertaining!!

She was able to give Elmo a hug!!

The whole crew performing this was such a cute show!!
I tried to upload a video but it keeps saying error sorry I really wanted to get it posted!!!

The kid's with the Crew!!

It was time to change into their suits we were headed to the splash park. They have a splash park for the kid's to cool off in and I enjoyed this myself also. It is a two part park where they have different splash activities geared toward the child's age. 

And they were so ready to go!!

When it was time to go they didn't wanna leave but there were so many other things to do. But I can't blame them it was a lot of fun in this splash area. 


Plunge from the sky on SheiKra®, our ferocious, floorless dive coaster by the masters of motion at B&M. Climb 200 feet to the edge of a 90-degree drop that inches you mercilessly over the edge—and stops. 
Then surrender to speed as you dive straight down into a 70 mph coaster whirlwind with an Immelmann loop, a second dive into an underground tunnel and a splashdown finale that drenches SheiKra fans waiting to catch their own piece of the fun.

Then it was time for lunch we had a nice lunch where a squirrel came to visit and he was eyeing us the whole time while we ate. We ate at the Zagora Cafe 

Breakfast, lunch or dinner! Try fresh-from-the-grill hamburgers, cheeseburgers and fajita wraps, plus a variety of sandwiches, salads, healthy alternatives and desserts!


I had a turkey and bacon wrap with fries that was really good and a lot healthier then some of the other stuff you can get. When walking around in the heat I wanted something light. 

The kids got a regular chicken finger platter with fries and they just split it. There was enough food on the plate for both of them and they really enjoyed there food!! I would highly suggest if your here to check out the cafe they have healthier alternatives. 

One of my favorite parts was you can buy this souvenir cup that is around $11.95 and you buy it that day and get free refills all day any type of drink. And when you come back to visit you bring this cup with you and it's only .99 cent refills. What a deal. 

Then we headed over to the bounce house they have there it was like she was walking on inflatable pillows she loved it!! On the other hand my son was scared of it I think because he is so small. 

Me and Jordyn got on the Merry-go-round and she loved it. This was super fun I haven't been on one of these in a long time it brought me back to my childhood. 

They were really excited to see all the animals and I think that is what made them love this park the most there are so many animals for them to see and enjoy!!

We saw the beautiful Elephants and Turtles and Gorilla's and so many more animals.

Everything was so beautiful this day it couldn't have been more perfect!!!

And last but not least for this visit the kid's picked a show where they sing. It's called Sound Sational it's like American Idol or one of them music shows you watch. They sing a lot of good songs popular songs. They have two different groups the guys and the girls. And the audience votes for the winner. 

This was the lady from the show they had to get a photo
with her.

The Girls

We had a really great time and we really enjoyed the whole park. If you are in the Tampa Bay area and are looking for something to do you should definitely check out Bush Gardens of Tampa Bay!!
