Today we found out that KaTonga will be closing its doors right after Labor Day. Also, their will be a new Kangaroo and Wallabie exhibit which will take place in the Bird Gardens area of the park. Here are some statements from Busch Gardens Tampa:
"KaTonga will be closing its curtains later this year. But we think all of our guests will be VERY excited when we announce what's coming next!"
You recently acquired the park's first collection of baby Australian kangaroos and wallabies for a new animal encounter. Is a themed home for them what's being built in the bird garden?
"Yes. It's going to be something we do very well: create immersive and interactive experiences with animals. It's part of refreshing the oldest part of Busch Gardens to make it more appealing to young families like we did nearby with Sesame Safari. We're keeping the bird show. We'll have more details before the new attraction opens this summer."
