TAMPA (AP) - Busch Gardens is picking up where Disney's Magic Kingdom left off.
Starting in April, the Tampa theme park will host Grad Nite for high school seniors. Busch Gardens already hosts a Grad Nite for eighth-graders each May.
Busch Gardens spokeswoman Kelly Heckinger says the event will offer roller coaster rides in the dark, along with musical acts and DJs. High school seniors will only be able to get into the park for Grad Nite if they arrive with a school group. Tickets will cost $54.99 and the park will stay open until 2 a.m.
Disney ended its 39-year tradition with the Class of 2011. Disneyland in California continues to host the event.
