Busch Gardens Tampa entrance

Busch Gardens Tampa will offer graduating high school students the chance to party late into the night at the park in 2012, as it launches its own Grad Nite events.

The park has announced that it will hold evening events for graduating seniors on April 27 and 28, 2012, with admission priced at $54.99. Busch Gardens Tampa is stepping into the void left by Walt Disney World, which announced in March that it would drop its own Grad Nites events after 2011.

Students will be able to experience Busch Gardens Tampa's line-up of major rollercoasters late into the night during the events. DJs and live entertainment will also be on offer. Space is limited, with the park recommending that reservations are made early by e-mailing gradnite@buschgardens.com or calling 866-781-1333.

The 2012 events will be the first ever Grad Nites for seniors at Busch Gardens Tampa, although the park will continue to offer an 8th Grade Grad Nite as well. This will take place on May 4, with admission priced at $43.99 including dinner.

Universal Orlando is expected to continue to offer its Grad Bash celebrations in 2012. The event spans both Universal Studios Florida and Islands of Adventure, and features live concerts, dance parties and karaoke.
