Busch Garden's - The Tampa FL vacation spot for everyone! Behind the Scene with GoPro

As a child I can still remember having season passes to Busch Gardens and going all the time. One of the things I love most about Busch Gardens was the Ice show. It is a magical show. 


I recently just took a small vacation to Tampa Bay Florida and got to explore alot of awesome places. Clearwater Marine Aquarium, Busch Gardens, Adventure Island and Lowry Park Zoo What made all those places even more exciting for me, is I got to capture amazing videos through a GoPro lens.







Busch Gardens also offers kid - friendly attractions for all ages. Sesame Street Safari was added since I have visited last when I was a child and I must say it is pretty awesome. Elmo and friends. Fly through the desert with Grover. Climb in Elmo's Tree House. Splash in Bert and Ernie's watering hole. You can even dine in with your child's furry friends. It's Sesame Street Safari of Fun, where imaginations run wild and there's fun for everyone. 



Capturing rollercoaster rides at Busch Gardens with the GoPro was amazing. The quality of a GoPro camera is sharp and clear, most waterproof cameras are not.

With the smallest GoPro camera out it was easy to carry around. The whole time I had on a chest mount which made it even more easier and secure for the camera while riding the rollercoasters.







Why I love the GoPro Session?



If you are someone like me, a photographer that takes their high end camera everywhere you go you will understand the stress it is to take your high dollar camera around water. I don't have to worry about that anymore, not with owning a GoPro. Its waterproof and takes sharp beautiful quality images.The GoPro is waterproof,shockproof,and dirtproof.













One of my favorite rides at Busch Gardens is Congo River Rapids. The thing I love most about Congo takes you through caves and through waterfalls. 








Busch Gardens has something for the whole family. They have awesome RollerCoasters such as:








Falcon's Fury - Falcon’s Fury is the tallest freestanding drop tower in North America, standing at 335 feet.  At the ride’s highest point, like its bird of prey namesake, riders pivot 90 degrees in midair to a face-down dive position. An instant later they'll plunge 60 mph straight down. Riders must be between 54” and 77” to ride Falcon’s Fury.



Cheetah Hunt - This triple launch coaster carries riders high above the park, then races down along the ground through a rocky gorge.


SheiKra - Plunge from the sky on our 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 .

Kumba - After the blood-curdling thrill of an initial 135 foot drop, you will plunge into a diving loop, feel a full 3 seconds of absolute weightlessness while spiraling 360 degrees, and tear through one of the world's largest vertical loops.

Montu - Challenge yourself to seven intense inversions on Montu, a B&M inverted roller coaster named for an Egyptian god of war.


Climb high into the air and hold on for a twisting drop, a 60-foot vertical loop, an Immelmann loop and a weightless roll and that's only the beginning! Whether you speak coaster or not, come see why Montu means thrills to roller coaster enthusiasts in any language.



Busch Garden's also has animals which is one of my favorite things about the park. Cheetahs,Rhinos,Gorillas,Elephants,Giraffes,Meerkats. You can see a full list of animals that live at Busch Gardens Here - Animals
