Busch Gardens Tampa, like its sister park in Orlando (SeaWorld Orlando), is planning its own series of events for its Summer Nights series. Busch Gardens is going above and beyond to show its guests and visitors that it’s not just a park for thrills and roller coasters. Between their summer concert series, fireworks displays, and access to the all-new Pantopia segment of the park after dark – there is so much to do and experience at Summer Nights at Busch Gardens Tampa.
Kinetix, an award-winning show makes its return to Busch Gardens Tampa – just in time for the Summer Nights extravaganza. This show features great, blood-pumping music and death-defying acrobatics by world-renowned acrobats who have traveled the globe to showcase their skills. The show also features an array of live musicians, singers, dancers, and much more. Kinetix has shows five days weekly – from Sunday to Friday nights in nearby Gwazi Park. The festivities start promptly at 9PM, with gates opening at 8. There are even interactive games and dancing prior to the show, so grab the kids and get there before the show.
We’ve all heard of opening night jitters, but this year, Busch Gardens Tampa brings you – Opening Night Critters. The Pantopia Theater is home to an all-new animal showcase that gives guests a first-hand look at large variety of animals, domestic and foreign, common and exotic. This is an all-new addition to the typical Summer Nights series at Busch Gardens and looks to be a huge success.
The Summer Nights Concert Series will also be heating up Busch Gardens Tampa with a series of Saturday-night concerns. Guests will be able to enjoy a wide assortment of pop, R&B, alternative, and latin music with delicious grilled food and a smattering of craft beers. The concerts are included in the cost of admission to the park and will be followed up by a vibrant fireworks display that will enchant and captivate guests and their families. The concerts will begin at 8:30pm sharp and will occur weekly on Saturday nights throughout the summer. They are first-come, first-serve, so make sure to get your spot early!
After the concert, guests are encouraged to check out the all-new Pantopia section of the park which will be open later than usual. Thrill-seekers will fill with glee as they enjoy the likes of the Scorpion and the Phoenix. Food vendors will also get a chance to enjoy fresh-rolled pretzels at Twisted Tails Pretzel Shop. There are also ribs, sausages, and shish-kabobs at the Dragon Fire for all of the carnivores in your pack.
