Busch Gardens’ Christmas Town is back for 2015 with more than 8 million lights, a new ice show and a deal on single day admission tickets that would tempt even Ebenezer Scrooge.
The Christmas Town season will run on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays from Nov. 27 through Dec. 6 and every day from Dec. 11 through Jan. 3 except Christmas.
Starting Friday, the park is offering a flash sale on tickets that will see single-day admission prices reduced by more than 50 percent.
The new $14 Twinkle Ticket will be available for purchase Friday through Tuesday, online only.
While the ticket is only usable on select days of the event, it represents a significant discount over the regular $35 single day admission tickets.
Twinkle Tickets are valid Nov. 29, Dec. 4, 6, 11, 14, 15, 16, 17, 21, 24, 30 and 31 and Jan. 1 and 3.
“This is the absolute best deal of the season. Nothing else comes close in price for a single-day ticket to Christmas Town,” Marketing Vice President Dan Dipiazzo said.
Season pass holders also have access to discounts on both single and multi-day tickets that, while not as inexpensive as the flash sale tickets, can be used on days outside of the range for which Twinkle Tickets are valid.
Pass holders can buy up to six single-day tickets for any operating day in the Christmas Town season for $22, or an all-access pass good for unlimited admission to Christmas Town for $30.
This year’s Christmas Town line-up includes an all-new show ‘Twas That Night, an ice spectacular starring world champion and two-time Olympic silver medalist Elvis Stojko.
The show will be the first in several years to grace the stage at the Royal Palace Theatre, located in the park’s Aquitaine hamlet, which has been transformed into a frozen pond for this retelling of the popular poem “A Visit From St. Nicholas.”
‘Twas That Night joins a line-up of five returning shows and several other notable attractions, including photo opportunities at Santa’s Workshop and the park’s Highland Stables.
Many of the park’s rides also stay open for the event, weather permitting, including the multi-launch, indoor/outdoor rollercoaster Verbolten.
