Busch Gardens Tampa Bay and Adventure Island brings back summer fun with newly extended hours, all-new thrill rides in the dark and incredible live entertainment.
The thrills come out at night at Busch Gardens from June 24 to August 7 during Summer Nights. Guests can challenge world-class thrill rides in the dark, enjoy rock-fueled music and acrobatics at the award-winning Kinetix show and end the night with a stunning fireworks show. Plus, Busch Gardens is open until midnight on Fridays and Saturdays, giving guests even more time to experience Summer Nights. The park will close at 9 p.m. Sundays through Thursdays.
NEW! Cobra’s Curse™, Busch Gardens’ newest spin roller coaster, will bring riders face-to-fang with an 80-foot snake king icon before trekking on a free-spin frenzy throughout Egypt. And experiencing this all-new ride in the dark will bring a whole new adventure!
When the sun goes down, Adventure Island heats up. Join us during Island Nights for tropical festivities that will make your summer unforgettable. Guests can enjoy island-inspired performers, a live DJ and games on the beach, starting at 5 p.m. each event night. Plus, hurtle high and experience a feeling of weightlessness on the Colossal Curl™, Adventure Island’s family thrill slide.
