Madagascar Live! Operation Vacation
A while ago, a brand new live entertainment show was announced for Busch Gardens Tampa. Now it has been approved that the new show, “Madagascar Live! Operation Vacation” will be permanently playing at the park.
“Madagascar Live! Operation Vacation” is a 20 minute musical that will feature Madagascar franchise characters such as Alex the lion, Gloria the hippo, King Julien, and many more. The show will also feature singers, dancers and a live band for the party-themed show.
According to The Tampa Tribune, the show will begin showing at Busch Garden’s Stanleyville Theatre- which is currently undergoing renovations and should feature air conditioning by May 18th. To kick off the grand opening of the show, Jack Hannah, an American zookeeper, will be telling interesting animal facts and travel stories, having a meet-and-greet, and signing autographs at the 11 A.M. and 1:30 P.M. shows on May 18th and May 19th. The Grand Celebration will also feature dance performances, animal encounters, and Madagascar characters meet-and-greets. There will also be a fireworks display on May 18th.
