Start A New Family Tradition With Christmas Town, Only At Busch Gardens
Busch Gardens Tampa is all set to launch their very own after hours Christmas event called ‘Christmas Town’ which is all set to start on the 30th November will transform the park into a nighttime holiday wonderland packed full of wintery surprises and all things Christmas.
For the first time in the park’s 53-year history, visitors to Christmas Town will experience all-new evening attractions, shows and shopping from 6 to 11 p.m. every Friday, Saturday and Sunday night from the 30th of November through to December the 23rd. The park is set to be transformed with special entertainment, live music, festive treats, holiday shopping and thousands and thousands of twinkling Christmas lights!
Nancy Hutson, vice president of entertainment says; “This is just a natural step for us to go, to keep the park open later and be able to use the dark evening hours to do some incredible lights and decorations and really take these phenomenal Christmas experiences to another level. The park will have distinct zones of decorations. Red and white lights will shine in the Nairobi area while animal-pattern decorations will be found in the Cheetah Hunt walkway. Children’s TV characters will be decked out in holiday gear at Sesame Street Season of Fun, while a topiary version of the nativity scene will seen in Stanleyville. The flamingo area will get a festive makeover with pink, twinkling lights. We wanted something that saluted Florida,”
Busch Gardens, IMO, is one of the best parks in Florida and well worth a visit at anytime of the year. However this new experience looks like its going to add some real magic this Christmas. If you are lucky enough to be one of the first to visit please send us over some pics and comments on what you thought – we’d love to share them
In the meantime you can still get Busch Gardens tickets at an amazing rate as part of the SeaWorld 3 Park Ticket which includes SeaWorld, Aquatica and Busch Gardens.
