Busch Gardens Summer Nights fireworks

Ready to finish out the next few weeks of summer by creating fun memories? Then plan a visit to experience Busch Gardens Summer Nights! After being closed for a period of time, Busch Gardens Tampa Bay has re-opened its doors with an all new laser and fireworks show, seasonal eats, and extended hours on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays through August 16, 2020.

Spend the day riding on Florida’s best thrill rides then wind down late into the evening. During Summer Nights, the park stays open late until 10pm on Fridays and Saturdays, and 9pm on Sundays. Check out the specialty backyard BBQ-inspired items chowing down on classics like Kung Pao Ribs, pulled pork, loaded mac & cheese and cupcakes (think Red Velvet Cheesecake, Chocolate Oreo Explosion and more). Pair your bites with Spicy Strawberry Jalapeño or Summer Lime margaritas. And, of course, you’ll be able to experience all of your favorite rides after dark.

Finish the night by watching the exciting laser and fireworks show while practicing social distancing on the Festival Field. The new show kicks off at 9pm every Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

Summer Nights is included with regular park admission to Busch Gardens Tampa Bay.
