Busch Gardens has introduced a free iPhone app that will give its Tampa theme-park guests directions from one attraction to another using GPS technology.

A interactive map will show users their current locations and the quickest route to restaurants, rides, shows or animal habitats by clicking on the "Take Me There" button. It carries details such as wait times, height restrictions and menu selections and also indicate the location of restrooms, lockers and ATMs.

The application features a "Find My Car" pin-drop locator, weather updates, an operating hour schedule, phone numbers for reservations and tours, a link to the SeaWorld & Busch Gardens Conservation Fund, an in-app camera and connections to social-media sites.

To download, go to the iTunes App Store and search for "Busch Gardens." An Android version is in the works.

The park's digital team is seeking feedback on the app. To participate, email BGTdigital@BuschGardens.com.
