Busch Gardens extends Christmas Town for more holiday cheer – extra date and later hours

This holiday season, Busch Gardens set out to create the newest tradition for Tampa families and now the park is adding even more holiday cheer to its calendar. To respond to enthusiastic consumer demand, Christmas Town has added an extra night and will now be open on Thursday, Dec. 20 from 6 to 11 p.m. In addition to the extra night, Christmas Town will remain open until midnight on Dec. 15, 22 and 23.

Christmas Town has transformed the park into a nighttime holiday wonderland of wintry surprises. Since its opening on Nov. 30, families have caroled across the Serengeti on the Christmas Town Express, marveled at penguins’ underwater antics and played in the snow at SnowWorld.

All of these new experiences and more are available every night of Christmas Town, now through Dec. 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 Children’s Hospital.

We featured Christmas Town in last week’s episode of “The Show” which you can watch below:
