There's nothing quite like saving a little money on a visit to your favorite theme-parks...even better when the discounts happen to fall around the holidays when they go all-out with the décor, treats, and Christmas-themed activities. Because who doesn't want to walk in a winter wonderland without ever leaving the Sunshine State? With their Christmas Town event in town, it seems a holiday sale also hopped onto the Holly Jolly Express and rode straight into Tampa with it — and you can snag a handful of different deals on tickets to Busch Gardens right now.
On December 5, Busch Gardens Tampa announced in a post on their Instagram page the start of their Holiday Sale, offering upwards to 40% off on select ticket deals.
"Falalalalalalala! 🎄 Our Holiday Sale is here and ready to gift you up to 40% off on tickets and passes! Don’t miss out on the merriest savings of the year!" the caption reads, in part.
Whether you're looking to pick up a single-day pass, are trying to plan for a whole year of fun with a 2023 Fun Card, save on more benefits with an annual pass for the family, or hit-up two of their affiliate-parks, you're looking at a discount, as well as have some freebies available.
The 2023 Fun Card specifically is going to give you the rest of 2022 and all of 2023 for free, all for the price of a single-day. Though some blackout dates during peak season for the park do apply with this option, so you're going to want to make sure you take a look at those details before you decide you want to pull the trigger.
If the Fun Card isn't your thing, up to 30% off is available with the single-day pass option, taking the cost of your visit from $132.99 down to $87.99. Or you can upgrade your ticket with the all-day dining pass for an upcharge, but saving yourself some cash on having to pay for grub while you're at the park. The upgrade is also on sale, taking 20% off the $49.99 price it normally runs for, down to a flat $40.
Annual Passes from Bronze to Platinum are all have price cuts too, and also include some sweet perks, such as up to 6 extra guest tickets for the year, admission to popular special events that take over the park, free general or preferred parking, up to 50% off on purchases made in the park, and more. If you fancy yourself a frequent park-goer and like to be able to go with your friends, these annual pass deals are going to give you the most bang for your buck, saving you $15 on Bronze and Silver passes, and $20 off of the Gold and Platinum tiers.
Like splashing around at Aquatica and Adventure Island waterparks, or seeing the sea-life at SeaWorld better than Busch Gardens? Then you're going to want to check out the two-park ticket option, offering 40% off your one-day visit to any combination of two of the above destinations. That's almost like getting admission to two parks for the price of one. And the All-Day Dining ticket upgrade can be applied to this deal too.
So, when does the sale end? According to the Instagram post, those looking to snag tickets at the discounted rates have until December 25 to make their purchase.
