I am a Busch Gardens blog ambassador. I did receive 4 tickets for my family to go to the park. However, all opinions are 100% my own and I was not paid for this post.
How to Enjoy Busch Gardens in the Summer Heat
A Few things you may want to bring with you:
- Frogg Togg Chilly Pads – Wrap these around your neck as you walk around. These are sure to cool you down considerably.
- Swim Clothes of a change of clothes – You will get wet. Having swim clothes or a change of clothes can make this easier.
- Towels – Unless you plan on air drying I recommend a towel.
- Frozen water bottles – As these thaw you will have an ice cold drink when you need it.
Busch Gardens has quite a few great indoor shows. These can be fun like the Madagascar: Operation Vacation show which has stadium seating and A.C. We visited the Madagascar show in the middle of the afternoon when it started to get really hot and it was the perfect reprieve.
The Iceploration show is another great show to take your children to. Not only will you be able to enjoy the A.C. and a comfortable seat, this is a very fun show with many surprise elements. This show is right next to the cheetahs. This is a fun tie in because you can see the cheetah hunt in the show and then take the kids to see the actual cheetahs.
Rides with Splash Zones
There are a few rides such as SheiKra that have a splash off as the ride goes by. C really enjoyed the anticipation and downpour from this one. This is a great way to cool off while walking from section to section. You can also get a huge splash on the bridge over Tanganyika Tidal Wave.
