Right on the heels of Disney World canceling its long-running Grad Nite at Magic Kingdom, Busch Gardens in Tampa is adding their own version for high school seniors graduating as part of the Class of 2012.
The after-hours event will be Friday, April 27, and Saturday, April 28 at the Tampa theme park. Busch Gardens says the headline entertainment will be announced this fall. A press release says participants will have access to the park's roller coasters, "high-energy" DJs and live entertainment.
Earlier this year, Disney discontinued its Grad Nite celebration, which began at the Magic Kingdom in 1972. Grad Nite continues at Disneyland Resort in California. Universal Studios offers a similar experience called Grad Bash, which is also expected to continue.
Space is limited for both Busch Gardens events. For reservations, email email@example.com or call 866-781-1333.
