Busch Gardens visits WSB-TV

ATLANTA - WSB-TV routinely hosts guests at its West Peachtree Street studios. But recently, some unusual guests came calling.

A quartet of animal ambassadors from Busch Gardens stopped by accompanied by several staff members.

The animals included a tawny frogmouth, an akidna, an uromastyx and an anteater.

"We have a ton of animals that are used for education purposes that get to go out all around the park, meet our guests each and everyday and have those same up close experiences that we just had in the newsroom," Busch Gardens' Trevor Suich told Nelson's News on wsbtv.com.

Busch Gardens was in Atlanta to promote some of the spring break offerings at the Tampa attraction.

"We're really the ultimate family adventure," Suich said. "We have something for literally everyone in your family. For the adrenaline junkie, we have roller coasters like Cheetah Hunt. That's Florida's first and only triple-launch roller coaster. We also have amazing shows like our Iceplorations ice-skating show. (It's a) fantastic show with live animals, gigantic puppets and some amazing ice-skating. We also have incredible animal exhibits for the animal loves out there."

Suich noted that guests who book their spring break packages on Busch Gardens' website will receive a free all-day dining pass, too.
