TAMPA, Fla. – Deal-seeking theme park enthusiasts have reason to celebrate early this year. Busch Garden’s 2018 Fun Card is officially available for purchase, until March 25.
The Fun Card costs $104.99 and gives purchasers unlimited admission to both Busch Gardens Tampa Bay and Adventure Islands through December 31. 2018. Assuming Fun Card holders have the stamina and intestinal fortitude to visit at least one of the parks every day for the next 14 months, the cost roughly equates to less than a quarter per day.
The two-park Fun Card includes admission to special events, including familiar favorites like the Food & Wine Festival (Saturdays and Sundays, Mar. 3 – Apr. 29) to all-new events like BierFest (Saturdays and Sundays, Aug. 25 – Sept. 16), however it does not include admission to Howl-O-Scream.
In addition to early availability of The Fun Card, Busch Gardens also announced the dates for a number of upcoming special events and the spring grand opening of Vanish Point. The ride will be the latest addition to Adventure Island, and is described as a 70-foot drop slide, which sends riders sliding through 425 feet of spiraling tubes.
