Take in beautiful views of roller coasters and the animals in Busch Gardens care as you cross the lush park from the comfort of the Skyride cable car, that runs between Egypt and Congo on the opposite side of the park. It initially closed during the pandemic in 2020, and has since remained closed for repairs. A lot of folks are eager to experience the views on this ride one more time.
