The Sensational Guide to Busch Gardens' Summer Nights

by Leap on May 22, 2023 Orlando

Busch Gardens Summer Nights - PinterestBusch Gardens' Summer Nights has been an annual tradition at the Tampa Bay theme park since 2003. This year, however, frogs are invited to party all day long, as well. With spectacular shows, dazzling fireworks and more, this summer celebration is a not-to-be-missed event! Festivities are hoppening daily until Aug. 6, 2023, and — the best part — it's included with the price of admission! Hop along with us as we discuss all of the excitement Summer Nights has to offer.

Busch Gardens Summer Nights Entertainment

Summer Nights Fireworks Spectacular

End your day of adventure and entertainment with this colorful pyrotechnic display filled with fireworks, fountains and special effects. This show takes place every Friday and Saturday (plus Memorial Day weekend & July 2-4), weather permitting. There's no bad seat in the house (err ...  on the Festival Field) but the closer you are to the front, the easier it is to see the incredibly choreographed fountains, flames and lasers. (The day we went, the Festival Field was closed due to high winds, so we had to watch the show next to the Coke Canopy stage in the Bird Gardens.)

Cirque Electric

Busch Gardens Summer Nights - Cirque Electric Stacking

Back by popular demand, Cirque Electric has returned to light up Stanleyville Theater. Extraordinarily talented world-class acrobats perform daring displays of balance and strength to an electrifying soundtrack. Every act elicited multiple gasps from crowd as these performers quite literally put their lives on the line. Tad and Lily were on the edge of their seats from start to finish!

Turn It Up! Remix

Busch Gardens Summer Nights - Turn It Up Remix Finale

Returning to the Moroccan Palace Theater—now with all-new routines—is fan-favorite "Turn It Up! Remix," an award-winning show that vibrantly celebrates skating with contemporary performances, aerial moments and dance-in-your-seat tunes, including "Set Fire to the Rain" by Adele and "I Lived" by OneRepublic. No need to bring a jacket to this ice show. Even sitting third row, we didn't feel the cold (although all indoor venues are nicely air-conditioned in the Florida summer heat)!

Gwazi Beats

Busch Gardens Summer Nights - Gwazi Beats

Once the sun begins to set, head on over to Gwazi Plaza for an pulse-pounding show featuring drums and dancers rocking out to songs such as "Run Boy Run" by Woodkid and "Welcome To The Jungle" by Guns N' Roses!


Starting June 11, frogs dining at Dragon Fire Grill will be treated to live performances of fan-favorite hits inspired by musical legends in this new review show!
