Looking for something new and different to experience in Tampa? If so, how about postponing that beach trip and exploring Busch Gardens’ newest, most ambitious park enhancement project to date – Jungala.   

I recently had the opportunity to experience this 4-acre “exotic jungle” with a few of my girlfriends. It was such a blast! The crowd was excited, the kids were in heaven and I really felt as though Jungala made a difference with my park experience. Not many people can say they’ve stood 1 foot away from a white tiger (of course there was glass in between us) but hey – it was still one of the neatest interactive experiences I have ever had at an amusement park.

What activities can you expect to experience at Jungala you ask?  Below are some of the many highlights and cool things to do:

  • Watch Bengal tigers swim and orangutans graze throughout the jungle
  • The zip-line allows for great fun and a great view of Jungala
  • Experience Tree-Top Trails where you’ll see the different layers of jungle life
  • Dine at one of the two kid-friendly restaurants
  • Get an up-close look at exotic animal’s habitats
  • Play tug-of-war with a tiger
  • Enjoy quality time with your family while you play together in this interactive village

Jungala is just one of the destinations’ newest additions – Tampa has exciting things happening all the time! Be sure to check out Jungala this summer! And when you do – let me know your thoughts, please!
