Now that the intense heat of summer has returned to the area it’s time to head to the water whenever possible. While the springs and beaches are the go to spots a new one is emerging in Tampa. Adventure Island, Busch Gardens Tampa’s water park, will become the place to be every Thursday, Friday and Saturday June 12 through August 9. Each of the evenings the part begins at 5pm running through park close at 9pm.
The party will feature the typical street performers, stilt walkers and live music of a theme park party but add in steel drums, a food truck and some amazing sand sculptures (which personally I long for the day that they come back to SeaWorld Orlando!). Then top it all off with a Glow-in-the-Dark Grand Finale every night.
If you’re a Florida resident Adventure Island along with their sister parks Busch Gardens and SeaWorld Orlando has plenty of different discounted seasonal pass offers, including the Adventure Island Weekday Pass that gets Floridians into the park every weekday through the 2014 season for only $47.
The summer party includes numerous aspects including;
Island Nights Food Truck — Relaxing on the beach isn’t complete without a tropical beverage in hand! Cool off with tropical delights at the new Island Nights Food Truck, located near Fabian’s Fun Port. While you’re there, be sure to indulge in tacos, quesadillas, nachos, salad bowls and more!
Kid’s Zone at Mango Joe’s Beach — The Kid’s Zone DJ revs up the dance floor with popular hits every night at Mango Joe’s Beach. This brand new kid’s zone bursts with excitement as Island Nights Party Starters amp up the energy when the sun sets in preparation for a fun-filled night.
Glow-in-the-Dark Grand Finale — Join the entire Island Nights cast on the main beach at 8:30 p.m. for a grand finale celebration, featuring high-energy music and LED-lit entertainment, including stilt walkers and performance artists. This finale includes audience participation, so be prepared to join in on the fun!
Sand Sculptures Every Week — Sand sculpture artists return with 25 tons of sand as they create newly-themed masterpieces every week for Island Nights. Sculptors will begin a new theme each Thursday evening and unveil the sculpture by Saturday.
