Buying Busch Gardens Annual Passes

Busch Gardens offers annual passes in conjunction with the other Florida based parks in the SeaWorld Parks & Entertainment group; i.e. SeaWorld Orlando, Aquatica Orlando and Adventure Island.

If you are planning to visit Busch Gardens more than once during the year then an annual pass can be a good option. Unlike a “length of stay” ticket that is generally valid for 14 days, an annual pass as the name suggests is valid for a full 365 days.


You can also purchase one day tickets to Busch Gardens plus multi-park tickets with SeaWorld, Aquatica and Adventure Island plus special discount Florida Residents tickets, meal deals and Quick Queue passes.

Busch Gardens in addition offer a number of special “close-up” and “behind-the-scenes” tours for those who want a bit more information about the various animals and attractions. Note that most of the tours have minimum age restrictions.

Busch Gardens annual passes ticket options are:

For admission to Busch Gardens, children under 3 are admitted for free.

Children aged 3 and above must purchase an adult ticket.
