Busch Gardens Insider: The Ultimate Educational Experience Do your students think they know
what it takes to run the world’s most beautiful theme park? Sign up for our Insider tour and go behind the scenes.

Enjoy a landscape tour of our gorgeous gardens in Italy; then, experience Ireland with reserved seating for a performance of Celtic Fyre®, the live show that brings together the magic of Celtic dance, music and storytelling.
NASA Presents Launch Into Physics We’re inviting all middle school and high school students to challenge the rules of gravity — thanks to our new Launch Into Physics program created in collaboration with NASA. On select days, Busch Gardens transforms into a huge hands-on physics laboratory, where students learn about momentum, acceleration, and G-force while exploring rides throughout the park. Because nothing brings inertia to life like a 240
foot plunge on Mäch Tower®.
Meal Options That Cater to You Wondering how you’re going to feed a bunch of hungry students? Busch Gardens has it covered. Discounted meal certiﬁcates let your students choose an entrée, side and drink from almost any restaurant in the park. Or if you’d like to eat together, we offer catered group meals with an all-you-care-to-eat buffet—the perfect picnic for picky eaters. It’s a great way to come back together for a meal. Not only will you have your very own space, you can even have your very own animal show. Once your group is ﬁnished with lunch, our animal experts will introduce a few of our amazing animal ambassadors. It’s a wonderful way to see the magic of wild creatures up close, while learning more about animal habits and habitats.
