Opening in 1959 as a free attraction to help promote the Anheuser-Busch line of products, Busch Gardens Tampa has evolved from a brewery tour and botanical garden into one of the nation’s top theme parks, with world-class roller coasters, animals, entertainment, and unique experiences.
BGT History.com is dedicated to preserving and sharing the history of Busch Gardens Tampa. Through this site, visitors will be able to step back in time and see the park throughout the years. The long term goal is to have the site also offer in-depth information on the park today, including images throughout the park, menus at all of the dining locations, and so much more.
Use the menu bar above to navigate the site, seeing the park’s timeline, defunct & current attractions, galleries with maps & brochures, and lots of other great information, images, and videos!
