Fun after dark at Busch Gardens and Adventure Island

The fun starts after the sun goes down

TAMPA - Locals know  its just too hot the go to theme parks during the day in summer.  The best time to go is at night and Busch Gardens and Adventure Island offers lots of entertainment and fun after the sun goes down.

We sent our awesome morning team, Sean Daly and Frank Barrera to find out what the fun is all about.

In addition to riding coasters in the dark, the Marrakesh Theater has an all new Latin-infused show that's great for the entire family.  .

Kinetix, the rock & roll music and acrobatics show also returns to Summer Nights to entertain the crowds.  

And for the first time they have an amazing fireworks finale every night
