Busch Gardens Tampa was named the 2016 Theme Park of the Year at the IAAPA Attractions Expo 2016 in Orlando.

The park was recognized with the Liseberg Applause Award as “a beacon of the industry” for its strong animal exhibits and attention to guest value. The award was presented during a gathering of more than 30,000 attractions industry manufacturers and buyers at the International Association of Amusement Parks and Attractions trade show, which is going on through Friday at the Orange County Convention Center.

Busch Gardens won over two other finalists: Legoland Billund Resort in Denmark and Water Kingdom Siam Park in Spain.
