And oh, those Summmmmerrrrr Nights! 

The excitement at Busch Gardens Tampa Bay is about to get a little louder and go a little later. 

The Tampa Bay theme park is kicking off their Summer Nights event on June 16 and it will run through August 6. The park will stay open until 9 p.m. on Sundays through Thursdays and until 11 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays. 

Not only will there be later hours, there will also be park-wide party zones, summer cuisine, thrill rides in the dark and an all-new summer ice show at the Moroccan Palace, "Turn it up!"

On the 4th of July, families can also celebrate the red, white and blue with a night of rides, live entertainment, and of course, fireworks. The fireworks show will start at 9:30 p.m.
