- View showing visitors leaving train at the Busch Gardens amusement park in Tampa, Florida.
- The Busch Gardens Serengeti Express Railroad opened in 1971, becoming the park's second major ride following the monorail. The train takes guests on a two-mile perimeter ride around the 335-acre park. Along the way, guests on the train ride can see hundreds of African animals on the Serengeti Plain, and other fascinating attractions at the park. The four locomotive engines are fueled by clean-burning propane gas. Two engines are replicas of the ones used in Africa in the early 1900s, while the remaining two are similar to those used in the American Old West.
