Busch Gardens Tampa 2018 Black Friday Sale

Busch Gardens Tampa Bay rolled out some special savings for Black Friday 2018 this morning at 8 a.m. Included in the sale is a discounted 2019 Fun Card, ticket discounts, 30 to 50% off several upgrades, and a special discount code for their online merchandise store.

See below for all the details, and pick up your Busch Gardens 2018 Black Friday deals on their website!


2019 Fun Card – $60

In honor of the park’s 60th Anniversary in 2019, Busch Gardens Tampa is offering a 2019 Fun Card for just $60 – but only for 60 hours, as this Black Friday Deal will end on Saturday, November 24 at 8 p.m.

When the SeaWorld and Busch Gardens parks rolled out their new annual pass program at the beginning of October, the 2018 Fun Card was removed as an option for guests to purchase, and it was unclear if the Fun Card would return for 2019. This new Fun Card option has one major difference than the old Fun Card – it comes with blockout dates.

The 2019 Fun Card blockout dates are: Mar. 30 | Apr. 6 & 13-27 | May 25-26 | July 1-7 | Nov. 23-24 & 29-30 | Dec. 21-22 & 28-30.

The 2019 Fun Card at Busch Gardens Tampa Bay includes admission during regular park hours beginning today and running through December 31, 2019 (blockout days above apply). The 2019 Fun Card does not include parking, in park discounts, or other perks that annual passes have. The regular price will be $100 after the Black Friday sale.


Tickets – $45 to $80 Off

Two ticket offers are also available as part of the the Busch Gardens Black Friday sale – A single day ticket and a two-park ticket with a visit to SeaWorld Orlando included.

The single day Busch Gardens Tampa Bay ticket is available for $60, a nearly $45 dollar savings from the full gate price of $104.99. Ticket must be used by December 20, 2018.

A two-park ticket is also available for $69.99 – a savings of $80. It includes one visit to Busch Gardens Tampa Bay and one visit to SeaWorld Orlando. This ticket must be used by January 31, 2019, but does include blockout dates of December 26 – 30, 2018.

You can pick up either of these online exclusive deals here. Offer expires at the end of Monday, November 26 (Cyber Monday).


Upgrades – 30 to 50% Off

In addition to the roll out of the 2019 Fun Card, Busch Gardens is also offering several discounts on various upgrade options for guests visiting the park.

The Christmas Town VIP Tour is on sale for 30% off, which brings down the price to between $62.30 and $69.30 depending on the date chosen.
