There are three options:


Buy your Fun Card NOW – for a limited time Adventure Island is included for FREE! ⇐


Active Duty Military Promotion: Busch Gardens offers one complimentary admission per year for military personnel and as many as three direct dependents. Click here for Busch Gardens military tickets.


Your entire family can enjoy all of Busch Gardens’s Special Events such as the Sesame Street Kids’ Weekends, Busch Gardens Good & Wine Festival, Summer Nights, Halloween Spooktacular, and Busch Gardens’s Christmas Town Celebration. {Busch Gardens also hosts Howl o Scream but it requires a separate ticket}. Visit the Busch Gardens Website for a full list of seasonal events.

We took advantage of this deal a few years ago, and my advice is to purchase 1 annual pass to get the free parking benefit, and then get FunCards for everyone else.

Sea World has a separate Preschool Pass that includes Aquatica Water Park.
