Local theme parks and attractions were mostly spared from Hurricane Irma's wrath. Like many Tampa Bay area residents, many of the attractions reported only minor damage in their parks and were able to maintain power to their facilities.

Busch Gardens, Lowry Park Zoo and SeaWorld also all reported that their animals were safe.

We are continuing to update this list of re-openings. Check tampabay.com for more updates on store and restaurant re-openings after Hurricane Irma.
