Busch Gardens Azara is a theme park located in Azara City, Azara. The park is located right next door to SeaWorld Azara and it first opened in 1970. Unlike Busch Gardens Tampa and Busch Gardens Williamsburg, Busch Gardens Azara doesn't currently have a theme.


Busch Gardens Azara first opened in 1970 as an African themed marine, bird, and wildlife park. In 1987 the park phased out its animal attraction to make way for amusement rides. The nearby brewery closed in 1999.
