Support BGT History

The goal of the BGT History Project is simple: to provide a well researched, free-access website with the most complete history of Busch Gardens Tampa available anywhere. It’s a passion project, and I try to work on it and update it as often as I can.

There are a number of costs involved in the project like website hosting, research expenses, artifact acquisition, and just the time and effort that goes into it putting all the pieces together to create the pages you see on this site. While I will continue to work on BGT History regardless of any outside support, the truth is that with the help of others the website can grow more quickly, meaning more information and images can be shared, and the history becomes more complete.

Help Support BGT History

There are several ways to help support the BGT History Project!

AAs a way of allowing those who wish to help support BGT History financially, a Patreon page was started. There, patrons can donate securely, and at some levels also receive some fun rewards. For more details on how to become a patron, visit BGT History on Patreon.

Donate Items, Memories or Help

Do you have an old map from a visit to Busch Gardens Tampa? Perhaps some snapshots your parents took on a trip when you were a child? Something on the site that looks incorrect? Your donated items or corrections of information or grammar are always welcome! Contact BGT History on Twitter or Facebook.

Share BGT History with the World

If you are unable or choose not to donate financially, I do hope you’ll continue to enjoy the website and share it with your family and friends. Follow along on Twitter and Facebook, and when you see posts there you like, share them with your followers, family, and friends.
