Busch Gardens indoor entertainment is starting to make a comeback! As Busch Gardens continues to prioritize the health and safety of its guests, ambassadors and animals in its care, soon guests will be able to enjoy indoor world-class entertainment!.
The Show Will Safely Go On
Beginning Friday, May 28. “Turn It Up!”, the park’s award-winning ice-skating production and an all-NEW acrobatic show, “Cirque Electric,” modified operations in the park’s theaters will make it possible for guests to once again enjoy incredible shows as they explore Busch Gardens’ 300 acres of exhilarating rollercoasters and fascinating animal habitats. In addition to the park’s already strict health and safety measures, which include enhanced cleaning and sanitization, and **face covering requirements, many modifications will be in place at Busch Gardens’ theaters upon reopening, including:
- Significantly limited capacity inside the parks’ expansive theaters to accommodate plenty of space between parties.
- Staggered entering and exiting procedures to keep guests physically distant.
- Protective Face Coverings required by all guests (who have not been fully vaccinated-see below), ambassadors and performers at all times, covering the nose and mouth.
- No eating or drinking permitted inside the theaters.
- Hand sanitizing stations available at the entrance and exit points of the theater.
- Extensive sanitation of all seats conducted between shows.
“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!

The Moroccan Palace Theater will once again be home to Busch Gardens’ spectacular, year-round ice-skating shows, including “Turn It Up!” 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.
