Starting today, Busch Gardens® Tampa Bay and Adventure Island® kick summer fun up a notch with newly extended hours, incredible live entertainment and all-new thrill rides in the dark – including the newly opened family spin coaster, Cobra’s Curse™.
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.
