Busch Gardens Tampa is “turning it up” this summer with the re-imagined nighttime spectacular Summer Nights. The updated summertime event now features better than even party zones, tasty summer eats, and the thrilling all-new summer ice show “Turn It Up!”

The Moroccan Palace is now home to the hottest show on ice, “Turn It Up!” The all-new production celebrates summer with vibrant performances set to today’s biggest hits. The ice show will certainly get you excited for summer as the skaters jump, flip and turn to the hottest music of today.

Also new to this year’s Summer Nights are the many different party zones.  Let’s take a closer look at each one:

Fiesta Festa! - Enjoy a fiesta in Fiesta Festa in Cheetah Hunt Plaza. The party zone includes live entertainment and a Latin-inspired menu including slow roasted mojo pork, jerk chicken empanadas, and chicharrons.  And what’s a fiesta without a drink? Guests can sip on sangria, margaritas and international and domestic beer selections as they party the night away.

Luau - If you’ve always wanted to be a part of a Luau now’s your chance. Busch Gardens’ Pantopia transforms into a tropical paradise with tropical drinks, island entertainment, and a Hawaiian-Inspired menu of huli huli chicken, Hawaiian barbecue ribs and pineapple cheesecake parfait.

Vibin’ Village - As the sun goes down Stanleyville becomes an African village called Vibin’ Village. Partygoers will enjoy tribal entertainment and authentic African cuisine like chicken mafi, tamarind shrimp watermelon cooler and smoked chicken pocket with harissa.

The fun, family summer event kicked off this past Friday and runs through August 6. Summer Nights extends park hours to 9 p.m. Sundays through Thursdays and 11 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays.
