Wild Surge is a Small Child Ride

The Wild Surge is a launch-type ride at Busch Gardens in Tampa, Florida.

It offers mild thrills mainly aimed at smaller children.

The minimum height requirements is just 38”, allowing many children as young as 6 to enjoy the ride.

The Wild Surge is located within Busch Gardens’ beautiful Jungala Village, which is one of the park’s many animal attractions.

Ride Details

The ride has two seating areas, each with room for 7 passengers.

You are seated at ground level, but as the ride begins you climb from a rocky canyon up to 35 feet above Jungala Village.

From here, prepare yourself for a series of wild-but-mild drops and surges.

The rise and fall of the ride is not predictably and you never know when it’s is about to drop or when it will reach the top.

The ride reaches its peak height several times throughout its duration.

Jungala Village

If you have the time, make it a point to view Jungala Village below you.

From your high vantage point, you may be able to spot some of the village’s animal inhabitants.

The gibbon habitat is particularly visible, while Bengal tigers and orangutans reside off in the distance. In total,

The Wild Surge lasts a little over 1 minute and is a perfect ride for younger kids who are not yet tall enough to climb aboard roller coasters and other similar attractions.

The anticipation and rush of the Wild Surge’s drop will be enough to get children excited without scaring them.
