For a limited time, Busch Gardens is adding three months for free onto every Busch Gardens Annual Pass purchased. This means that passes purchased now won’t expire until December 31, 2017, so there are 15 months to take advantage of special events, free parking and exclusive monthly rewards.
The rest of this year and next year have a great line-up of activities. There are the classic standards that everyone loves like Christmas Town, Real Music, Food and Wine Festival and Jack Hanna Weekend (among others). But there have been a couple more added to the mix that are new this year.
SESAME STREET SAFARI OF FUN “HALLOWEEN” KIDS WEEKENDS
For the last weekends in October of 2016, Sesame Street Safari of Fun “Halloween” Kids Weekends will open. This new Halloween party, hosted by the Sesame Street gang, will allow kids to enjoy festive arts and crafts, trick-or-treat candy stations and a hay bale maze. Characters like Count, Elmo, Cookie Monster and Abby Cadabby will be out for a good time as they lead a character parade and dance parties. “The Count Weekend” and “Monsters & Faires Weekend” will take place on October 22 ,23, 29 and 30.
THE WILDLIFE DOES LIVE
And launching for the first time in May 2017, Busch Gardens will present The Wildlife Does Live. It’s a visual journey that combines 3-D projection technology, live animals, and a Broadway-style performance to bring you some serious entertainment inspired by The Wildlife Docs television series. The emphasis of the experience centers itself on the unique connection that exists between creatures of the sea, land, treetops and sky. And, honestly, it sounds breathtaking.
The Annual Pass which gives you access to these events in addition to the other incredible happenings on the calendar is $168.00 and is valid until the end of 2017. You can get your passes online, at the Busch Gardens’ front gates or by calling (888)800-5447.
