As guests walk through the park’s freshly landscaped pathways on March 16, they will no doubt spot the extensive rejuvenation efforts taking place at some of its iconic locations.   Inside the front gate, England’s Globe Theatre is entering the final stages of a high-tech transformation to prepare  for the debut of Busch Gardens’ newest show, London Rocks. This innovative show explores the role music plays in people’s lives, and will bring live theater back to the illustrious Globe Theatre later this spring. The show’s theme will eventually extend to the surrounding England village to create an immersive London experience for guests as they enter the park.

Land of the Dragons is also undergoing a makeover. The park’s original KIDsiderate attraction celebrates its 20th anniversary this season. A recent post on the park’s blog detailed the efforts the being undertaken to refresh the area in time for a special anniversary celebration on March 22.  In honor of Land of the Dragons’ two decades of creating memories for park guests, Busch Gardens social media team is inviting fans to recreate their childhood Land of the Dragons photos and share the results on the park’s Facebook page.

Other milestones events, including the 15th anniversary of Apollo’s Chariot and the return of the park’s popular Food & Wine Festival will take place later this spring. Busch Gardens’ Facebook fans helped choose a new theme this year. A Caribbean-themed menu is being developed by Executive Chef Justin Watson that will be incorporated into the park-wide culinary adventure later this spring. More details about the Busch Gardens Food & Wine Festival will be announced soon.
