Squirrel causes outage at Busch Gardens

Busch Gardens suffered a power outage on Saturday afternoon.

The outage started around 9 a.m. local time, with the Tampa Electric Company saying power was restored in some parts of the park around 1 p.m.

A complete restoration was achieved by the end of the day.

People who visited Busch Gardens on Saturday were asked to visit a ticket window for possible refund options, reported Fox 13.

Guests were allowed to get into SeaWorld Orlando or Adventure Island on Saturday with a Busch Gardens Tampa Bay ticket.

The outage was caused by a squirrel invading the park’s substation, officials later said.
