Buying Busch Gardens Tickets

Busch Gardens often run promotions with their neighbouring water park, Adventure Island (seasonal) and with SeaWorld in Orlando. In fact they operate a free shuttle between Busch Gardens in Tampa and SeaWorld in Orlando.

As with all the Florida theme parks, if you are a Florida resident, you can often get discounts and special privileges with a Florida residents ticket or you can buy an annual pass either just for Busch Gardens or in combination with other parks.


Busch Gardens also offer around a dozen “up-close” and “behind-the-scenes” tours and animal interaction packages for those who want to find out a bit more about the various animals and attractions. Note that most of the tours have minimum age restrictions.

To make it easier to budget your food bills, there is an “all day” meal deal as well as a character meal (seasonal).

For a while there was a special offer on single day park tickets with a second visit free until August 4, 2019

If you don’t like the idea of waiting to get onto some of the more popular rides then like Disney and Universal Studios, Busch Gardens also has a “front-of-line” pass called Quick Queue.

Busch Gardens single and multi-park 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.

The Busch Gardens Quick Queue is like the Disney FASTPASS or Universal Express ticket in that it gives you “front of line” access to a number of the main rides at Busch Gardens like SheiKra and Montu.

The pass comes in two types; the standard cheaper pass is good for only one ride on each participating attractions whilst the Unlimited pass gives you as many “front-of-line” rides as you want all day.
