Busch Gardens has several special events lined up for this summer.

From pyrotechnics to neon dance troupes, Busch Gardens will offer various events starting July 6 and running through Sept. 2.

Summer events start with “Spark,” a pyrotechnic laser light show in the Royal Palace Theatre that will be performed nightly through Aug. 12. The show will include a cast of “10 party-starters,” a bubble dance floor for guests and popular dance music, the park said.

If laser shows aren’t your thing, you can still sit for a different type of show at the Abbey Stone Theatre.

Light Balance, a neon dance troupe that appeared on “America’s Got Talent,” will perform five shows nightly from July 6 to 8. The team’s costumes glow with a special wire coating and other luminescent material.

The park will also host fireworks every Friday, Saturday and Sunday through Sept. 2. For the Fourth of July, the park will set off additional fireworks from July 3 to 5.

Finally, thirsty park guests can cool off with water rides and the park’s new Spritzer Squad, a team that roams throughout the park with refreshments.

The schedule for summer events is as follows:

  • Spark: July 6 to Aug. 12
  • Light Balance: July 6 to 8
  • Fireworks: July 3 to 5, plus every Friday, Saturday and Sunday from July 6 to Sept. 2
  • Wilkommenhaus Visual Spectacle: July 6 through Aug. 12
