See Turn it Up! At the Moroccan Palace inside Busch Gardens Tampa

Busch Gardens Tampa is making summer even more exciting this year with their reimagined Summer Nights, with new themed party zones, summer dining, thrill rides at night and the new ice show Turn It Up.

The show, which takes place inside the Moroccan Palace, celebrates summer with sizzling ice dancing moves set to contemporary music. Tagged as “the hottest show on ice,” Turn it Up! is a thrilling celebration of ice skating that also includes aerial choreography and lively contemporary dancing.

Other new additions to the summer event include three themed party zones at Cheetah Hunt Plaza, Pantopia and Stanleyville.  

Fiesta Festa! transforms Cheetah Hunt Plaza into an immersive Latin experience with entertainment and a menu of roasted mojo pork, jerk chicken empanadas and chicharron. Sangria, margaritas and domestic beer will also be available.  

Luau brings Hawaiian-inspired entertainment to Pantopia with food like huli huli chicken, Hawaiian BBQ ribs, pineapple cheesecake parfaits, tropical cocktails and more.  

Vibes’ Village in Stanleyville takes guests on an African adventure with tribal entertainment and cuisine including chicken mani with peanut sauce, tamarind shrimp, craft beers, cocktails and more.  

Guests will also be able to enjoy Busch Gardens’ many thrill rides in the dark including Cheetah Hunt, Falcon’s Fury, SheiKra and the park’s newest spin coaster Cobra’s Curse.
