TAMPA, Fla. – Thrill seekers will soon be able to enjoy their favorite food items from Chick-fil-A at Busch Gardens Tampa Bay, the company announced on Thursday.

The restaurant chain will take over the park’s Bengal Bistro this fall, and will be nestled into the Jungala area of the park near the tigers and orangutan habitats.
