Florida’s first theme park Chick-Fil-A location is set to open this fall at Busch Gardens Tampa Bay, and will feature traditional menu favorites, open Monday through Saturday at the park.

What’s Happening:

  • Starting this fall at Busch Gardens Tampa Bay, thrill seekers will be able to enjoy their favorite food items from Chick-fil-A while dashing from rollercoaster to rollercoaster. Formerly the park’s Bengal Bistro, the new restaurant will be nestled into the Jungala area of the park near the tigers and orangutans where guests will soon enjoy the popular restaurant’s fare.
  • Opening this fall, the in-park restaurant will offer a selection of Chick-fil-A lunch and dinner menu items, including the iconic chicken sandwiches, waffle fries, lemonade and more. The restaurant will be open for business Monday through Saturday.
  • A leader in customer service satisfaction, Chick-fil-A was named top fast food restaurant in Newsweek’s 2019 America’s Best Customer Service report and received several honors in QSR’s 2019 Reader’s Choice Awards, including “The Most Respected Quick-Service Brand” and “Best Brand for Overall Experience.”
