Mardi Gras is Coming to Busch Gardens

Tempt Your Tastebuds

Mardi Gras without food is like a beach without sunshine. And if you’ve ever been to New Orleans, you can probably conjure up the outrageous, one-of-a-kind flavors of beignets, andouille gumbo and Cajun hushpuppies. Sample entrees, desserts, cocktails, beer, wine and more with a 5- or 10-item Mardi Gras sampler, and eat your way to Mardi Gras heaven. Check out the menu right here.


Take a Ride

Nothing brightens up a winter sky quite like world-class roller coasters. Hop on one of the park’s iconic roller coasters or take a spin on the kid-friendly rides and activities. Check out the full list of rides and coasters!


Be Amazed—and Rock Out

Busch Gardens will transform into an explosion of sights and sounds with an all-new Mardi Gras-themed spectacular in the Globe Theatre. Carnaval Imaginique is a circus spectacular sure to keep you on the edge of your seat with thrilling acrobatic artistry and stunning feats of balance and strength. 

Next, immerse yourself in the brass beat as an emcee conductor takes the stage in Das Festhaus with a New Orleans Jazz Band. Or step up the fun with the Samba Jamboree in Rhinefeld as wild court jesters drum to a jazzy New Orleans rhythm. You can also meet the King and Jester of Busch Gardens Mardi Gras in the France village, which comes to life with a colorful “krewe” of ribbon dancers and stilt walkers! If you love a challenge, try the family-friendly, park-wide masquerade scavenger hunt, great for even the youngest guests!

Real life can be hard, so when you can find a way to truly enjoy it, you’ve got to jump on the opportunity! Bring your friends and family for a fun-packed weekend at Busch Gardens, and stay at your favorite home-away-from home at King’s Creek!
