[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Christmas Town will return to Busch Gardens this holiday season with more than a million twinkling lights, and this year it will be open later on event nights, the Tampa theme park announced. Christmas Town transforms the park into a nighttime holiday wonderland of wintery surprises and all things Christmas, filling guests’ senses with seasonal sights, sounds and flavors, and continuing a beautiful tradition for Tampa’s families. What’s even better than that? A portion of the proceeds from Christmas Town will benefit All Children’s Hospital here in the Bay area. This year’s event has added even more nights to experience all-new evening attractions, shows and shopping.
Christmas Town is open 18 select nights from 6 to 10 p.m., Nov. 29 through Dec. 23.
New this year is the “We Three Kings Show,” a musical journey to Bethlehem, and a new Christmas Time Tree Show.
Also a new addition, the Holiday Hills Band will perform classic Christmas songs with a jazz-inspired twist.
NEW! RUDOLPH’S WINTER WONDERLAND
Meet and take photos with Rudolph, Clarice, Yukon Cornelius and Bumble at the all-new Rudolph’s Winter Wonderland located in Celestial Crossing. Play holiday games and indulge in Yuletide treats while scenes of the beloved story of Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer come to life.
MEET SANTA & FRIENDS
The Claus family invites you into their North Pole home at Santa’s House presented by Coca-Cola®. While the elves are busy preparing for Christmas, Santa is taking a break from his busy holiday schedule to meet and take photos with families in his private study.
NEW THIS YEAR! Enjoy unlimited admission to all 18 nights of Christmas Town with the Christmas Town Unlimited ticket.
NEW THIS YEAR! This year’s event also introduces Discovery Dollars, a new cashless wristband that can be preloaded with cash or linked to a credit card. Dollars can be used at merchandise and dining locations around Christmas Town to make your family’s night even merrier!
And while Christmas Town brings exclusive Yuletide experiences, guests will also have the opportunity to ride some of Busch Gardens’ most popular roller coasters, including Cheetah Hunt, SheiKra and Gwazi.
