Busch Gardens names entertainers for Grad Night

Two big-name acts have been announced for Busch Gardens' first grad night for high school seniors in April. American pop rock band Cobra Starship and comedian Gabriel Iglesias (right) will be entertaining the high schoolers at the attraction on April 27. The park announced it was starting the grad night after Disney World announced earlier this year that it would be ending the tradition after 39 years. Cobra Starship, formed in 2005, released its fourth album, Night Shades, in August 2011. The band is best known for its top 40 hit, Good Girls Gone Bad. Gabriel Iglesias is known as the "fluffy" comic in a Hawaiian shirt who coined the saying, "I'm not fat … I'm fluffy." Individual tickets won't be sold, though. Like at its Disney predecessor, seniors will be able to get into Busch Gardens grad night only if they've come with a bus trip. The price is $54.99, and the hours are 7 p.m. until 2 a.m. A free chaperone ticket will be given for every 10 ticketed students. For reservations, e-mail or call 1-866-781-1333.
