Busch Gardens opens March 26 for its 35th year and is celebrating with a new ride, a
new show and an all new night-time celebration that will leave families breathless

The world's most beautiful theme park is re-envisioning its Ireland section with a
new simulator ride featuring the scenic beauty of Europe and an Abbey Stone Theatre
show that pays homage to Ireland's great storytelling tradition.
"Europe in the Air" swoops guests across gorgeous terrain and past the continent's
most beloved landmarks. Dive low over Stonehenge. Soar past Neuschwanstein Castle
in Germany. Float over the Coliseum in Rome. With amazingly sharp video quality and
incredible surround sound, this high-tech simulator ride puts our guests in the
midst of all the action. Europe in the Air will replace Corkscrew Hill.
After landing, stroll over to Abbey Stone Theatre and join the celebration as Busch
Gardens debuts its newest live show filled with authentic Irish choreography,
storytelling, singing, music and the magic of Irish dance. One of Dublin's favorite
innkeepers invites you to experience day-to-day life in this incredibly unique
culture. With a cast of singers, Irish dancers and musicians, guests will be
clapping their hands and shouting "Erin Go Bragh."
Busch Gardens also is now home to a stop on the ASA Action Sports World Tour, an
extreme sports extravaganza with all the grinds, aerials and freestyle tricks that
extreme sports fans have come to expect. During the last three weekends in May,
"Ramp Jam" at Busch Gardens will be hosting the top skateboard, BMX and in-line
skating athletes performing extreme stunts and tricks on a half pipe built just for
the tour at Festhaus Park.
Coming this June, join Busch Gardens for its first ever park-wide summer festival
celebration. "IllumiNights: A Busch Gardens Encore" is a new, nightly spectacular
that encircles family fun and memories with world traditions. Trees will bloom with
color and the night sky will burst with dazzling arrays of light each night during
the celebration. Different areas of the park will celebrate IllumiNights in its own
way, culminating in a park-wide pyrotechnics extravaganza that will have guests
returning again and again.
This year also marks the return of Busch Gardens' popular free concert lineup. From
June 6 – Sept. 6, the park will host 20 different concert performers starting with
the contemporary Christian festival, Glory at the Gardens, featuring acts like
Steven Curtis-Chapman, Switchfoot, Third Day and Kirk Franklin. The concerts
continue every weekend until Labor Day, featuring more bands like the B-52s and
Grand Funk Railroad.
