Sesame Street Safari of Fun

Sesame Street Safari of Fun is the newest area at Busch Gardens in Tampa, Florida.

It is aimed at introducing children to the wonderful world of animals in a fun setting that is guided by familiar Sesame Street characters like Elmo, Grover, Ernie and Bert.

The area is full of interactive stage shows, meet and greets, playgrounds and rides specially designed for children.


A favorite ride with kids is definitely Air Grover.

This junior roller coaster packs all the fun of larger coasters, but with slower speeds and a more kid-friendly ride.

The Count’s Zambezi Rally is another popular attraction with a maximum height requirement of 56”.

Here, children take to small kid-friendly cars attached to a track where they can control their own speed.

The Sunny Day Theater and Big Bird’s 123 Smile with Me allow children and their parents to interact, meet and greet with their favorite Sesame Street characters.

Meet & Greet

Big Bird, Elmo and the rest of the gang make themselves available for photos and hugs during this time.

To get even more time with the Sesame Street characters, try the Lunch with Elmo and Friends, which is geared towards children between 3 and 9.

In addition to all this, Sesame Street Safari of Fun has plenty of other Safari-themed experiences as well as a merry go round, treetop play land and water playground.

The area is a must-visit for families visiting Busch Gardens with little ones not quite tall or old enough to ride some of the other roller coasters and attractions in the park.
