Busch Gardens Tampa invites you to unwrap a family tradition during the annual holiday event Christmas Town. Starting Nov. 17, celebrate the holidays with Santa, Rudolph, twinkling lights, Yuletide shows, holiday treats and much more. Here is just some of the holiday cheer you can enjoy at this year’s Christmas Town:
Christmas Town will feature several shows to get you into the holiday spirit including Christmas on Ice with world-class skaters; Christmas From the Heart, the contemporary Christian gospel celebration; Carol of the Bells, featuring tens of thousands of Christmas lights choreographed to seasonal music; Three Kings Journey that tells the story of the journey to Bethlehem; Elmo’s Christmas Wish with Elmo and his friends as they learn the meaning of Christmas and the Christmas Town Band that brings classic Christmas songs to life with a jazz twist.
Take a stroll through Christmas Town’s Christmas Village and enjoy shopping, carols, holiday dining, model trains and more! Some highlights of the town include thousands of twinkling lights, Holiday Cabins, and the Jingle Bell Express Train Ride.
What’s Christmas without twinkling Christmas lights? During Busch Gardens’ Christmas Town, guests can marvel at thousands of light displays throughout the park. New to this year’s event is the Congo-Stanleyville Walkway where you can walk through the gorgeous light tunnel connecting the Congo and Stanleyville areas. The Morocco pathway will sparkle and shimmer as a live angel sculpture welcomes guests and white garland wraps the front of the Moroccan Palace. The Cheetah Walkway and Plaza will showcase larger-than-life nutcrackers, decorations and animal patterns for one wild display. Celebrate a Florida Christmas at Flamingo Way with decorated palm trees and a flock of festive flamingos created from thousands of pink lights. Bird Gardens puts poinsettias on display with an enormous tree made of the red flower.
The Claus family invites you to the North Pole at Santa’s House presented by Coca-Cola. Santa sure could use a break from all the toy making so he’s welcoming guests for photos at this fun attraction.
Rudolph’s Winter Wonderland
Visit Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer and his friends at Rudolph’s Winter Wonderland in Pantopia. The area includes holiday games, Yuletide treats and meet-and-greets with Rudolph himself and other friends like Clarice, Yukon Cornelius, Sam the Snowman and Bumble.
