Planning a family vacation can be difficult, especially when there are so many things to do in Florida! Gulf Coast Vacation Rentals is conveniently located near the absolute best amusement parks and a considerable amount of popular beaches. When staying in our Gulf Coast Vacation Rentals, you won’t have to sacrifice the excitement for the beach! Don’t miss these unforgettable amusement parks in Florida.  

Busch Gardens Tampa Bay

This Tampa Bay amusement park has an activity to please everyone. For the thrill-seeking visitors, you must ride Busch Garden’s new ride, Tigris. This fiery orange attraction is Florida’s tallest launch coaster. Visitors will fly through Tigris’s twists at over 60 miles per hour and at one point, even shoot up 150-feet into the sky! For those of you looking for a more relaxing experience, tour Busch Garden’s zoo. You’ll have the opportunity to get up close and personal with over 200 species of the world’s exotic, endangered and extinct creatures. The Busch Garden Zoo is one of Northern America’s largest.

TreeUmph! Adventure Course

Put your agility to the test at TreeUmph! Adventure Course. There are over ten football fields of challenging landscape and hundreds of air-bound games. TreeUmph! Adventure Course is a blast for family members of all ages. During one portion of the adventure course, guests are challenged to swing through the woods using the course’s obstacles

Adventure Island

Escape Florida’s heat to Adventure Island where the water is always cool. Guests of all ages will find enjoyment in the corkscrew water slides, waterfalls, giant wave pool, lazy river and more!  If you’re looking to scream, check out the Vanish Point. This slide sends guests free-falling down 70-feet. If you’re not interested in this thriller, head to your private cabana for some R&R. Don’t forget to apply sunscreen! 

Universal’s Islands of Adventure

Enter the world of superheroes, beasts and magical creatures at Universal’s Islands of Adventure. The park’s rides and shows are centered around classic movies that everyone loves. The top featured attractions are Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey and Jurassic Park River Adventure. It’s no surprise Islands of Adventure has been rated number one amusement park in the world for the last four years.
