18 May 2018 -As the sun goes down, the night comes alive at Busch Gardens Tampa Bay’s Summer Nights. New this year, the event starts earlier than ever on May 25. The event features extended hours, endless energy and world-class coasters that light up the night.

“We are excited to bring back our Summer Nights annual event this year earlier than ever, just in time for Memorial Day and the end of the school year,” said Stewart Clark, President and General Manager at Busch Gardens Tampa Bay. “Summer Nights is full of fun for everyone with longer hours, unique entertainment, and some of the best thrill rides in a whole new light.”

Starting Memorial Day weekend, guests can enjoy the all the excitement of Summer Nights with any park admission, and keep the party going late through August 5.

Party Zones

Summer Nights will feature three uniquely themed party zones at the Bird Gardens, Cheetah Hunt Plaza, and Stanleyville areas of the park. Guests can dance into the night at each location and indulge in spectacular summer-inspired culinary offerings in every party zone.

NEW! Backyard BBQ

Guests can celebrate summer at the newest party zone, Backyard BBQ, which is taking over the Bird Gardens, this year. The party will feature live, local music and classic American fare with a twist including chicken waffle sandwich with blackberry pepper jelly, St. Louis ribs with Cherry Coke® BBQ sauce and smoked beef brisket sliders with Jack Daniel’s® and Coke® BBQ sauce peach slaw. Guest can sip on beverages such as old-fashioned lemonade, bourbon cream root beer and special “dreamsicle floatinis.”

¡Fiesta Festa!

Cheetah Hunt Plaza transforms into the ¡Fiesta Festa! party zone, complete with lively entertainment and a flavour-packed menu, including steak chimichurri with yucca fries, beef empanadas and tostones and seasoned pork sliders with avocado puree. The party zone will also feature both Tequila and Margarita bars, and several additional drink options including Moscow mules, frozen sangria and wine selections.

Vibin’ Village

The Vibin’ Village party zone takes over the Stanleyville area with endless fun and unique culinary creations including traditional hummus topped with curry-roasted cauliflower and pita chips, chilled shrimp with watermelon and tamarind glaze, and special funnel cake with strawberry and kiwi sauces, as well as international and domestic beer selections.

NEW! Florida’s Best Thrill Rides, Brighter than Ever

Florida’s most thrilling coasters will light up the night in a whole new way this summer. The excitement of Falcon’s Fury, Cheetah Hunt, SheiKra and spin coaster Cobra’s Curse™, will be brighter than ever with spectacular lights and sounds as they fly through the night

Beer is back at Busch Gardens Tampa Bay! For the duration of Summer Nights, guests age 21 and older can enjoy two complimentary beer samples from the Garden Gate Café each time they visit the park.

inline imageGuests can start making plans to join some of their favourite "Toy Story" characters during Disney H2O Glow Nights, the splashy new, nighttime pool party coming to Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon Water Park this summer.

Tickets are on sale now for this after-dark event, which is part of an Incredible Summer coming to Walt Disney World Resort. Tickets are $55 plus tax for guests ages 10 and up, and $50 plus tax for children ages 3-9.

On Thursday and Saturday evenings, from June 21 to August 11, Rex and his "Toy Story" pals will transform Typhoon Lagoon like never before by throwing a glow party in the surf pool and throughout the park. Rex, a.k.a. Partysaurus Rex, will serve as host and invite guests of all ages to join the festivities. All attractions will be open for guest enjoyment and, as part of the fun, there will be special food and beverage offerings, “Toy Story” character greetings, a DJ dance party on the beach and more. Disney H2O Glow Nights also will feature The Wharf, a unique, adults-only area with a private bar, entertainment and additional seating.

To purchase tickets and learn more about Disney H2O Glow Nights, call (407) 939-1872.

inline imageRay Rush, Aquatica Orlando's anticipated new attraction will be making its grand debut to park guests on Saturday, 12 May. The new attraction promises to be a fully-loaded water adventure which will combine three unique slide elements, never before seen at Aquatica, into one action-packed attraction the entire family can enjoy together.

At nearly 60 feet tall, Ray Rush is where family and friends can take on three exciting thrills as they slide, splash and soar like never before. First, riders will be launched with water jets designed to propel rafts into the first of several enclosed tube sections. Next, riders will swirl into the giant sphere. Finally, riders will drop into an open-air halfpipe that resembles the shape of a manta ray before ending with a splash. Ray Rush will have a height requirement of 42” to appeal to families with children and will accommodate up to four riders per raft.

The park announced the addition of Ray Rush this past October. The new slide is located on the north side of the park next to Walkabout Waters. A neighbouring attraction which was temporarily closed to accommodate the construction of Ray Rush, Walhalla Wave, reopened this past weekend.

Starting 21 May 2018 Disney are making it easier and more convenient for guests to be reunited with items they have lost in Walt Disney World Theme Parks, Water Parks, Disney Springs and ESPN Wide World of Sports.

Guests will be able to report lost items via their smartphone using the Disney APP. Disney Cast Members will do the searching and keep the guests updated whilst they continue to enjoy their day.
