This Christmas season, Busch Gardens set out to create the newest tradition for Tampa families. Now, the park is adding even more joy to its calendar.
To respond to enthusiastic consumer demand, Christmas Town has added an extra night and will now be open on Thursday, December 20 from 6 to 11 p.m.Â In addition to the extra night, Christmas Town will remain open until midnight on December 22 and 23.
Christmas Town has transformed the park into a nighttime holiday wonderland of wintry surprises. Since its opening on November 30, families have caroled across the Serengeti on the Christmas Town Express, marveled at penguinsâ€™ underwater antics and played in the snow at SnowWorldÂ® Presented by Coca-ColaÂ®.
All of these new experiences and more are available every night of Christmas Town, now through December 23. Christmas Town opens at 6 p.m. on every event night; however, guests with Christmas Town tickets can enter the park early at 5 p.m. A portion of the proceeds from Christmas Town will benefit All Childrenâ€™s Hospital.
Christmas Town is a separate-ticketed night event, and regular daytime admission is not required or included. General admission for Christmas Town is $39.99 plus tax. Busch Gardens annual pass members will receive the deepest discounts with advance online priced at $24.99 for adults and $9.99 for children, and special offers are available for guests wishing to upgrade their paid daily admission to Busch Gardens. Gift cards are available at Bay area Publix locations and additional discounts are offered through promotional codes from Chick Fil-A, Coca-Cola at Wal-Mart and Fantastic Samâ€™s. Families with children ages 3 to 9 can still enjoy a special advance-purchase price of $9.99 for their youngest members.
