There weren't a lot of restrictions that I could tell, other than use common sense. It seems as if everyone did. They have "lifeguards" stationed around and on the "pier". Ball tossing and splashing was going on all over. It really was a blast and very surreal. It is almost impossible to stand upright, but it's fun trying. You can jump off the pier, which is an odd feeling. Some were diving, though they don't recommend diving, but it is allowed. There's free fluffy fluffy's for valuables and is strongly recommended. If you lose something it will just float away and you will not find it, no way no how. They post signs up that if you lose something you won't be able to get it back until after the 26th when they "drain" the beach. Oh and another bonus is that you get a free scoop of ice cream too along with free parking. You can't believe the workout you will get from it either.
The balls are not like your typical ball pit. they are very soft yet firm. Like I said, it is very very surreal. I don't know quite how describe it. It is not considered as a kids' ball pit but as more of an art installation. It is more geared to a more mature crowd, not little kiddies. I mean, c'mon, they serve beer. You just have to experience the wonderful weirdness of the whole thing. It is so very weird , beautiful and odd. you have to experience it to know how things just float away. It just does, Here is a link to the group that puts it on . https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J3NMVpiJ0_A And if this doesn't confuse y'all more.....
If you all don't mind, I'm going to change the subject and talk about a boat ride called "Journey to Atlantis. . .
"Dude, that ride's in SeaWorld. I thought this thread was supposed to be on Busch Gardens Tampa?"
Well, it is. I just wanted to say that they ought to put a ride like that to replace their old and closed-off Tanganyika Shoot the Chutes ride. I think that would be awesome!
"Hey, no fair! We want them to do something with the old Gwazi that involves RMC structure work!"
Hey, I would love to see both, but I'm sure one attraction would be worked on first. So here is my question to all you Busch Gardens Tampa lovers and anyone else that's a rider and amusement park flyer: What attraction would you like to see them work on?
