Busch Gardens – Iceploration

9 Sep

Busch Gardens will perform a new ice skating show early next year called “Iceploration” which will feature live animals, large puppets, acrobats and more.

The show is scheduled to make its debut in the theme park’s Moroccan Palace on 12th February 2012.

Busch Gardens President Jim Dean revealed details about the show at a news conference on Thursday at the theme park, calling it the “biggest show in the park’s history.”

“It takes all of the shows we’ve ever had and combines them into one adventure,” he said.

The 30-minute ice show is about a digitally-savvy boy named Austin who puts down his gadgets to travel the world with his grandfather. The adventure takes them to African Serengeti, the Great Barrier Reef, the Arctic and the Amazon Rainforest, where skaters, acrobats, larger than life puppets, set designs, lighting and projections will tell the story of the duo’s adventures around the globe.

It will feature 20 performers, some dressed in animal costumes, including dragonflies and rainforest frogs, who made a brief appearance at Thursday’s presentation.

Two Siberian huskies, Shivers and Journey, also will be a regular part of the show. Other animals in the show include macaws, a Siberian lynx and whooping cranes. The performance also will feature a new signature song called “Meet the World.”
