Christmas Town at Busch Gardens

 Disclosure: As a Busch Gardens Ambassador I received tickets for my family for free. I was not compensated for this post and all opinions are my own. 

As an ambassador for Busch Gardens we had the pleasure of going twice this year. The first time was amazing, but with Christmas Town it was even more amazing as everything was decorated with pretty lights and Christmas music was played through the park. The Christmas spirit was running through my veins the entire night.

When we first arrived, we could not wait to visit the section of the park we missed the last time. The weather was so beautiful and not sticky hot like the time before. My kids wore a light sweatshirt as there was a slight chill in the air. This definitely was perfect walking around weather.


Gwazi was our first stop as we did not get a chance to ride the wooden roller coaster last time. I have to say it was not my favorite as I felt there was too many rocky bumps along the way. I think I am so used to the metal coasters that wooden does not feel the same as it did many moons ago. It definitely has the speed and turns for those that like fast rides and curves.

Most of the pictures that I am going to show you is more focused on Christmas Town. We did ride every ride except the Scorpion as it was reaching close to the end of the night and we were very tired. Since I showed just about every ride during my last trip I wanted to show you what Christmas Town is like and how they brought the spirit of Christmas to Busch Gardens.

At the North Pole part of Christmas Town there is Santa’s House where the kids go in and visit Santa and Mrs Clause. 


 This is the video my husband captured of the kids visiting Santa at Santa’s House. They loved it and Mrs Clause gave each child a cookie after. Such a cute experience.

At Christmas Town Busch Gardens Tampa there is so many fun things for kids to see. Bubbles were coming out of light posts to look like snow and every inch was covered in beautiful lights. My other kids would not allow me to photograph them at all but what can you do? (haha). Christmas Town is open on select nights from November 28th thru December 31st. Closing time ranges from 8pm to 9pm. Separate admission is not required.
