IllumiNights may be dead, but the desire to keep an event of some kind going year round sure isn't. The little birdies say that we'll see an IllumiNights replacement debut next year right after Food & Wine.

I'd like to see the return of an evening summer show like Imaginique in the RPT. I still think that is the best show BGW has produced over the last several years. Plus, I just really like that venue, especially with its proximity to Griffon and the great view it offers.

Ideally, they should do one large show at the RPT, Street performers instead of small shows, and Fireworks on the weekends. Minimal decorations throughout the park because the park is (was) beautiful on its own.

That being said, we're getting gaudy crap instead.

I just hope they aren't adding any parades. I hate parades.

Have one show in RPT, small village bands, street performers, no decor, and fireworks on the weekends. That is what I would want, but of course, that won't happen. Let's use a semi-famous quote:

"[...] will sparkle this year!" :dodgy:

Don't worry, I still love you Busch Gardens!

This isnt a rumor. Its official, as it was announced an entertainment "event". Instead of all these fireworks shows, it will be a few very extravagant fireworks display. Plus new nighttime entertainment

Please show me the press release or tell me where this was announced to the public.

Hmm, this sounds interesting. Very similar to Illuminights; however, I take it the firework displays would be different.

I'm a complete sucker for fireworks, so I hope they put together a better display. If we can get back an Imaginique style and quality show I don't need them to add anything else for summertime entertainment, I'll be planted in RPT every night.

It was an unofficial thing told to the entertainment department by Scott himself. I've got eyes on the inside, at least during howloscream season, I did.

I'd love for Imaginique to come back! Smiling I also like the small groups of musicians they have like in Ireland and England for Christmastown, so keeping that small musical element would be nice. Also, be open until midnight like when I was a kid!

I'd also like them to cut back on the "famous" musical acts. I know they weren't part of Illuminights; but, I really don't go to theme parks to see music acts that aren't made for the park. I know even Disney does it at their Food and Wine festival, but it's irritating and quite frankly a copout. A theme park should have their own original programs, not bring in the tween sensation of the month.

I actually think the concerts are great for those who can't afford or can't travel to see their favorite artist in concert. Yes, the concerts probably deserve a venu separate from the park, or not so "in the park" but I honestly enjoy them and I hope they keep getting a diverse lineup. I am sure if they were able to build a stadium or something to house the concerts, that would be a great all year round thing they could do.

But I do love Imaginique just as much, if not more.

Which is it "Official" or "Unofficial," you're contradicting yourself. Point is I don't care if Scott walked over and told me or Zachary himself. Until its released by the park it is a rumor.

It's officially unofficial from a friend of a friend who was on the inside but isn't anymore.
