The shop features clothing and accessories exclusive to Busch Gardens Tampa Bay, including T-shirts and special bear carriers to create a cuddly reminder of a fun day at the park. Some of the stuff-able creature options include alligators, elephants, tigers, penguins, monkeys and even a few Sesame Street characters like Cookie Monster.


Photos shared by Busch Gardens show guests can dress up their creates in khaki, safari-themed outfits and then carry them around in a blue Build-A-Bear Busch Gardens backpack. The park also said more exclusive furry friend options and accessories will be added in the coming months.

Busch Gardens Tampa Bay’s sister park, SeaWorld Orlando opened a Build-A-Bear Workshop earlier this year with similar exclusive clothing and accessory options to dress up stuffed sharks, turtles, sea lions and flamingos.

As part of its Black Friday sale, Busch Gardens is offering admission for the rest of 2021 for free with the purchase of a 2022 Fun Card. You can also save up to 60% on tickets to the park. Both deals are available through Nov. 26.
