Summer Nights 2017 reimagined with new entertainment and exotic cuisine at Busch Gardens Tampa

in Busch Gardens, Theme Parks

A new ice show was recently announced as part of the revamped Summer Nights event at Busch Gardens Tampa, and now we have more details about the full event schedule.

The ice show, called Turn It Up!, is scheduled to open on Friday, May 26. Performed at the Moroccan Palace, Turn It Up! celebrates summer with hot ice dancing moves set to contemporary pop hits.

Three new party zones are also part of the updated Summer Nights.

¡Fiesta Festa! transforms Cheetah Hunt Plaza into an immersive Latin experience with entertainment and a menu that includes roasted mojo pork, jerk chicken empanadas, and chicharróns. Sangria, margaritas, and domestic beer options will be available.

Luau brings Hawaiian-inspired entertainment to Pantopia with food options that include huli huli chicken, Hawaiian BBQ ribs, pineapple cheesecake parfaits, tropical cocktails, and more.

Vibin’ Village in Stanleyville takes guests to Africa with tribal entertainment and cuisine including chicken mafi with peanut sauce, tamarind shrimp, craft beers, cocktails, and more.

In addition, the Summer Nights Sampler Lanyard includes 8 samples of food throughout the park. The lanyard costs $34.99 and Pass Member discounts are available.

Of course, guests will be able to enjoy all the thrill rides the park has to offer — this time, in the dark.

If you’re looking for some fun on July 4, Busch Gardens Tampa is also hosting a special Independence Day fireworks celebration. Tampa favorites Actual Bank Robbers will perform on the Gwazi Park mainstage and host a Summer Nights Dance Challenge with special guests. End the day with a spectacular fireworks show at 9:30PM.

The park will be open from 10AM to 10PM on July 4.

The Summer Nights event is free with park admission and runs from June 16 – August 6. For more information, head over to the Busch Gardens website.
