Busch Gardens announces Pokémon Go Lure-A-Thon

- While many business owners consider where their location fits into the world of PokéStops and gyms, Busch Gardens is making the park a destination for the rarest of Pokémon. 

This Saturday, July 16 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., Busch Gardens will transform into the training ground worthy of Ash Ketchum himself. The park will be stocked full of lure modules and rare Pokémon ready to be added to your Pokédex. 

Players should wear their team colors and take advantage of the park's free wi-fi, charging stations and air conditioned PokéStops. The Busch Gardens Tampa Blog is stocked with pro tips for maximum level up opportunities. 

The blog also has a map of gym locations, tips for egg incubation aboard the Serengeti Railway - which also transports you to a special PokéStop - and the best ways to navigate the park. 

If you're a Busch Gardens Tampa pass member, you'll get exclusive access to seven PokéStops with activated lure modules from 8:30 a.m. until 9:30 a.m. during Cobra's Curse ride time. 

Park admission is required. For more information on prices and parking, visit https://seaworldparks.com/en/buschgardens-tampa/book-online/adventure.
