Christmas Town at Busch Gardens is a long-held tradition which is returning this year bigger and better than ever, with brand new experiences for the whole family to enjoy. Every day, beginning the 17th November, guests can experience the magic and joy of Christmas when they visit Christmas Town, home to Santa Claus and Rudolph, and decorated with millions of twinkling lights. Best of all, there’s no extra cost for this special seasonal event, as it’s included with regular admission and extended park hours until 10pm on select dates.
Christmas Town returns this year with an all-new festive show, delectable Christmas treats and exclusive visits to Rudolph’s Winter Wonderland, as well as the chance to experience some of Florida’s biggest thrill rides after dark. Santa will also be meeting guests at Santa’s House presented by Coca-Cola, where you and your little ones can have your photo taken with Santa – the stuff Christmas dreams are made of! Other photo opportunities include favourite characters at Rudolph’s Winter Wonderland, Ice and Poinsetta princesses to meet, the Cookie Monster and Elmo nutcracker figures and playful penguins at the Christmas-themed Penguin Point.
New this year at the Dragon Fire Grill restaurant, guests can also enjoy “Christmas Is…” a contemporary music show that celebrates Christmas traditions as you enjoy a delicious lunch or dinner. The new show joins a festive line-up of returning favourite shows including Christmas on Ice, Elmo’s Christmas Wish, the Holiday Hills Band, Carol of the Bells light show and the Christmas Town Sing-A-Long Train.
If you want to make your Christmas celebration at Busch Gardens extra special, book the new Brunch with Santa dining experience, which is fun for the whole family. While the kids will be mesmerised by a visit from Santa himself, guests can enjoy unlimited mimosas or ‘Build Your Own Bloody Mary’ upgrades while indulging from a menu bursting with Christmas favourites that the whole family will love. Brunch is available to book at the Serengeti Overlook restaurant on select dates from the 17th November.
