#ShowUsYourSummer at Busch Gardens Tampa Bay and Adventure Island! 

Busch Gardens played host to area bloggers and business professionals in Central Florida last night at an immensely fun event at Adventure Island! At the event, we were able to learn more about the summer's promotions, entertainment offerings, and more! It's obvious that Busch Gardens and Adventure Island have the goal in mind for you to have an epic summer filled with thrilling adventures. As always, be sure to visit the Busch Gardens website for details, but here is a streamlined breakdown of the various offerings this summer!

Vanish Point – Now Open at Adventure Island

New for the 2018 season, Vanish Point is Adventure Island's epic 70-ft free-fall drop slide. RIders choose between two wave paths, one that drops the floor from beneath the feet or one that begins in a seated position before taking a steep dive on a 455-ft-long speed slide. See our article on this innovating water slide by clicking here. #VowToVanish

Free Beer! – Now through August 5th

#BeerIsBack at Busch Gardens Tampa Bay! For the duration of Summer Nights, guests ages 21 and older can enjoy two complimentary beer samples from the Garden Gate Cafe each day they visit the park.

Summer Nights – Now through August 5th

Kicking off earlier this year than in the past, Summer Nights is a great reason to come for the day and stay the night! With extended park hours, endless energy, and world-class coasters that light up the night, the event features themed party zones and more! 

Rainy Day Tickets

If Busch Gardens experiences severe inclement weather that forces the rides to close for an extended period of time, rain checks are being given out to park guests. Guests who have a visit to the park rained out will be able to visit again for free within 30 days. The offer is valid on single day and multi-day tickets. See website for details.

Free Admission for Active US Military and Veterans

Busch Gardens is proud to support Active Military Members with one complimentary admission per year for military personnel and as many as three direct dependents. To qualify for this promotion and see offer, log In with your Troop ID on the Busch Gardens website.

Ryan (right) is a theme park enthusiast living in Central Florida, and loves going to the parks as often as possible! He's an annual passholder to Disney, Universal, Busch Gardens, and SeaWorld. In the Fall of 2017, his Thrillz article on Turn it Up: the Hottest Show on Ice at Busch Gardens was cited in a massive ad campaign. He also loves horror films and just movies in general! If you see him out and about in the Florida parks, stop him to say hi! 

Ryan holds a Master of Arts degree in Media Studies (with a concentration in cinema and themed entertainment) from the University of South Florida. His research area is on the convergence of cinema and theme parks. He explores ideas such as narrative, spectacle, setting, and setting in terms of movies and themed entertainment. Learning how to successfully translate an idea of intellectual property from one medium into another is the primary goal of his predictable model for creative design that affects both theme parks and the cinema.

Although he loves to write for Thrillz, his "day jobs" are working as a video editor for Disney on Ice and teaches screenwriting at the University of Tampa.

He is also a figure skater.
