Weekdays 3:00pm - 7:00pm

Rides in theme parks get shut down for maintenance regularly, but most often, it’s just a couple of days. Busch Gardens is shutting one down for more than two months.

According to the Busch Gardens Tampa website, there are a few rides that are set for upcoming maintenance for just a couple of days or a few weeks. Of course, this is part of what keeps these famous rides safe.

One ride, however, is getting a much longer time off for maintenance. Cheetah Hunt will be shut down from October 11 until December 17.
