Officials said modified operations in the park’s theaters will make it possible for guests to once again enjoy incredible shows as they explore Busch Gardens’ animal habitats and exhilarating attractions.

“Bringing more live entertainment safely back to the park is another huge step in returning to world-class entertainment at Busch Gardens Tampa Bay,” said Neal Thurman, Busch Gardens Tampa Bay Park President. “Since our reopening in June, our park teams have been incredibly innovative and adaptable with bringing our productions to life in new ways and we’re thrilled to expand our offering to include new programs in addition to fan-favorite shows.”

“Turn it Up!” will run multiple shows, Thursday through Monday, at the Moroccan Palace Theater. With contemporary performances, dazzling aerial moments and eclectic pop music, it’s no wonder this production has earned a spot on “USA TODAY’S 10Best” Readers’ Choice Awards, officials described in a news release.

“Cirque Electric” will run multiple shows per day, Friday through Monday, at the Stanleyville Theater. The show will feature airborne aerialists, stunning displays of balance and strength, and acts on wheels that cannot be missed.

In addition to the park’s already strict health and safety measures, which include enhanced cleaning and sanitization, temperature checks, and face-covering requirements, many modifications will be in place at Busch Gardens’ theaters upon reopening, including limited capacities, staggered entering and exiting, no eating or drinking and extensive sanitation of all seats in between shows.
