Busch Gardens Tampa wants you to come and "catch them all" at their "Pokemon Go Lure-a-thon" event on Saturday, July 16.

They're calling it the "Ultimate Pokemon Go event" and they're challenging all players of the game in the Tampa Bay area to come and put their skills to the test in their park. 

According to the Busch Gardens Facebook event page, there will be over 50 lure modules activated from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. throughout the park, including: Pantopia, Egypt, Jungala, Edge of Africa and Stanleyville.

Even better, Pass Members will get exclusive access to the seven Pokestops with activated lure modules in the Egypt area of the park from 8:30 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. during the Pass Member Cobra's Curse exclusive ride time. 

Busch Gardens wants all "trainers" to get into the spirit and wear their team colors. It's a race to see who can level up as many Pokemon as possible.
