Fireworks, Busch Gardens

Theme Parks in Florida are trying hard to entice guests back to their gates and Busch Gardens has kicked off its month of Summer Nights weekends today, which will see the park opening until 10pm each Friday, Saturday and Sunday evening between July 17 - August 16. 

The event promises to feature a new laser and fireworks show as well as the option to purchase seasonal food. Needless to say, during a time when capacity needs to be managed very carefully, all guests are required to make a reservation before visiting the park.

For full details and to book tickets, visit Busch Gardens official site where they are currently offering discounted ticket prices.

The laser and fireworks display starts at 9:00pm every weekend evening at the Festival Field and a limited-time menu is being offered including BBQ Classics, Loaded Mac-N-Cheese, Pick-Your-Own Speciality Cupcakes and assorted frozen cocktails.
