While at Busch Gardens, I loved strolling through Lorikeet Glen. The rainbow lorikeets really seemed to like me, or maybe it was just the nectar! To get the full experience like I did make sure to purchase a cup of nectar at the entrance to Lorikeet Glen.

We knew rain was coming at some point on our Sunday visit. Got to the park at 10am and started riding rides.. Started to rain around noon for a 2 hours. Rides shut down but we made the best of it! After the storm we continue adventuring the park and had a blast! Beautiful park!

"Busch Gardens"
March 2022
It was a beautiful day, the temperature was 80° à perfect day. But, was extremely disappointed in the park. There were very few rides open for adults. The only thing that we could due at an amusement park was shop or eat. Was not really the reason we paid à ton of money for to enjoy the park. Since there where very few rides open the lines were ridiculous long. In 6 hours at the park we were only able to get on 2 rides. So so disappointed. Took 2 teenagers along with us that were on their spring break from college. They also were very let down.
