Watch 10 Million Twinkling Lights from Finnegan’s Flyer

Have you ever wondered what the world looks like from Santa’s point of view? This year, Busch Gardens is giving you the opportunity to find out. Starting November 16, you can take flight on the Finnegan’s Flyer and sing along to your favorite holiday songs as you soar above the park. Be careful, though, as this ride isn’t for the faint of heart. It’s an extreme swing ride that reaches staggering heights of more than 80 feet and speeds of 45 mph. However, if you can handle the rush, you’ll definitely experience some of the park's most magical views.
