Theme parks…it’s where it’s at.  It doesn’t matter who you are, what age you may be or what mood you’re in.  Everyone can always go for some excitement that can only be found at such an extraordinary place.  

As my family and I jumped onboard the Serengeti Express, we prepared for a relaxing ride around the park as well as a few very fun roller coaster rides.  Enjoy this photo essay I’ve put together while cruising around Busch Gardens!

It’s simply astonishing at how detailed one can get in making these creations with just a few different plants!

Funny characters saluting after the show.

At the end of the day we capped off our little adventure by jumping on The Sheikra…a death defying roller coaster that rises more than 200 feet and drops at a 90 degree angle straight down reaching speeds of up to 70 mph!  

Would you dare go for a ride…what is your favorite theme park to visit?
