If there's one thing we can all agree on, it's that tickets for theme parks can be a little expensive on the regular. With Busch Gardens in Tampa building a new coaster expected for 2020, we theme park enthusiasts are already saving & planning our next trip, but they're running a great deal on their fun cards now, so it just might be time to cash in.
Busch Garden's yearly fun cards generally give guests access to the park for a single fee for the whole year in which it's purchased, excluding a few blackout dates during peak traffic days scattered throughout the year. However, this fun card deal extends from the remainder of the year all through 2020, and for less than you'd pay for a single day at the park.
The fun card will usually run you $109.99 and generally only includes the year that you purchase; they already took it a step above by including the rest of 2019 and all of 2020, but Busch Gardens took themselves one step further by dropping the fun card price $5 to $104.99. Sign us right TF up!
Busch Gardens even wiped out the blackout dates for the rest of 2019 to give Florida residents full reign — and also added a few events included into this fun card deal price, including the family-friendly Sesame Street Halloween Kid's Weekends this month, Christmas Town Nov. 16th through Jan. 6th, and the Real Music Real Masters event from Jan. 7th through March 15th. Some blackout dates will still apply for 2020.
At that price, you almost can't go wrong. Even better that we Sunshine Staters will be able to get in on that sweet, multiple records-breaking coaster action at a discount — heck to the yes.
The coaster's building progress has been fun to watch too, and it's looking like it will be right on time for a 2020 opening. Instagrammer's are trying to guess when it will open, but with how much progress was already made we're hoping for sooner rather than later. Either way, we're on like Donkey Kong.
Busch Gardens also added in an experience earlier this year that lets guests get up close & personal to feed and pet Rhinos or Sloths — it's easily the cutest thing ever. While it's not included in the fun card deal, we think we might need to go, like, yesterday.
An overview of the fun card deal's details can be seen below.
