Get Free Busch Gardens Tickets – Thanks to Kane’s Furniture + the Tampa Bay Bucs

Free Busch Gardens Tickets Kanes Furniture Bucs

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Kane’s Furniture have Teamed Up to offer a great promotion to Central Florida residents!

During the 2023 NFL football season, when the Buccaneers record 10 first downs or more in a home game, fans can register to receive a free single-day ticket to Busch Gardens® Tampa Bay.

UPDATE Sunday, December 24, 2023 – The Bucs scored 10+ First Downs in the game today and this promotion is currently active! Sign up ASAP and visit a store within 3 days of the game.

Here are the steps to get your free Busch Gardens Ticket:

1. You must be 18+ to register {see below for other Busch Gardens ticket deals}

2. Register at – you’ll need your Driver’s License number and must provide valid contact information, including a valid email address

3. Check for the Confirmation Email. Mine had a subject line “Tampa Bay Buccaneers – Busch Gardens – Kanes 10 First Downs Promotional Voucher”

4. Visit any Kane’s Furniture Showroom within 3 days of Game Date with your Driver’s License / ID and the confirmation email. Digital is fine – you need the Registration Code from the email.

5. Note that you must go to the store in person, you cannot send your ID and email with someone else to claim a ticket under your name.

6. Receive a a free one-day admission ticket for Busch Gardens Tampa Bay! The paper ticket I received is valid through 3/3/2024 with a few blackout dates listed around Thanksgiving / New Years (specifically 11/25, 12/28, 12/30, 12/31). Since it is a paper ticket, anyone should be able to use it at the entry gate at Busch Gardens, it is not tied to your ID.

More info on this promotion:

We picked our tickets up at the Lakeland Kane’s Furniture store on a Sunday evening after a game ended (10/22/23) and can confirm this promotion is legit, in addition hundreds of our readers have also registered and picked up tickets.

Kane’s has locations across Central Florida – everything we’ve read says you can get the tickets at any Kane’s showroom, but we’d recommend calling your closest store to be sure. In addition to Lakeland they have stores in Brandon, Tampa, New Port Richey, Clearwater, St. Pete, Sarasota, Port Charlotte, Fort Myers, Naples, Orlando, Melbourne, Ocala (Kane’s locations). Of course if you’re in need of new furniture be sure to take a look around while you are there!

IMPORTANT: Each person has to be 18+ and to go in person, you can’t take someone else’s ID and email with you. The promotion is limited to one ticket per person, per season.

What they gave us is a paper ticket and as far as we can tell, anyone can use it, so although your kids under 18 can’t register, they should be able to use your ticket if you want to give it to them.

The tickets we received are valid through 3/3/24 with a few blackout dates around thanksgiving/Christmas. Limit of (1) one ticket registration per person for the entirety of the promotion for the 2023 Season.

Busch Gardens Tickets for Kids Under 18

Since you must be 18+ to register and claim a ticket, children under 18 cannot register. Here are some ways to save money and get Busch Gardens tickets for your entire family:

  • There are great deals on Busch Gardens Fun Passes right now – you can get the rest of 2023 free when you buy a 2024 Fun Pass.
  • Hopefully they will offer the Free Busch Gardens Preschool Pass again in early January 2024 – you can get these paper tickets now for the adults and save them for Jan – Feb and use the preschool pass for ages 5 & under.
  • Leave the kids at home and go on a day date or go at night during Christmas Town – it is magical!

A few things we do not know:

  • We do not know how many tickets each Kane’s store keeps in stock, you may want to call and confirm they have tickets available before driving to the store.
  • We don’t know if all Kane’s locations have tickets in stock or just certain locations close to the Tampa Bay Bucs. Visit the Kane’s Furniture website to see a list of locations and call the store closest to you to confirm.
  • We are not sure what the deadline is for visiting the store to claim your ticket. Everything says 3 calendar days so we’re assuming Wednesday after a Sunday game. (We registered during the game on Sunday, October 22 and my email simply says the ticket voucher / email expires on Thursday, October 26).
  • This promotion is available after any home game when the Buccaneers record 10 first downs or more. There is a countdown on the sign up page that lists the number of tickets remaining. The countdown seems to start at 10,000 and count down to 0 after each game. If you visit the registration link and there is not a contact info form to complete, check back after the next Bucs game (if registration is not active it says The Registration Period For This Game Has Ended. Come Back Next Qualifying Game!)
  • Future Bucs Home Games: December 31

We are in no way affiliated with the Bucs or Kane’s Furniture and don’t know anything more than what is posted here, we just wanted to share this great promotion! For more information check with your nearest Kane’s Store.
