It has nothing to do with the animals at either park. The exhibits are easily closed off dusk. BGT is no where near downtown Tampa and they can stay open as late as they want. There are noise ordinances however so things like nightly fireworks can only occur certain times of the year. It's been (one of) my home park for over 10 years now. I actually just looked at the calendars for the 2 main school districts in the area and they get out before Memorial Day so it's not that. Perhaps they are just not anticipating huge crowds until mid-June when most families start taking vacations (at either park).
