It seems as though everyday you hear about another massive price increase for the cost of daily admission at your favorite theme park. For most Orlando area attractions, you can expect to pay more than $100 a day simply for the privilege of walking in through the main gate! Busch Gardens® Tampa and SeaWorld® Orlando think weekdays need to be celebrated, especially weekdays during spring break. Both parks are offering a special $50 Weekday Ticket, on sale for only 50 days, good for a single weekday admission to either park, now through May 5, 2014, including spring break.
Busch Gardens® Tampa is the ultimate family adventure, offering 300 acres of fascinating attractions based on exotic explorations around the world. Everyone will enjoy the unparalleled mix of animal encounters, captivating shows and thrilling rides.
Kicking off March 21, SeaWorld Orlando’s pathways come to life with oceans of spontaneous entertainment. “Bubble Blowout” is a fantastical vehicle creating bubbles of all sizes and shapes. Engaging performances with sea-inspired costumes and props will pop up at surprising moments to surprise guests throughout the day, like “Splash Dance.” The“SeaWorld® Surprise Squad” will roam the park on a daily basis giving away prizes and special gifts, including exclusive access to rides, behind-the-scenes experiences, Shamu-themed merchandise, reserved show seating, and more.
The $50 Weekday Ticket is available online to U.S. residents through the SeaWorld and Busch Gardens websites, or by calling (888) 800-5447. The $50 Weekday Ticket is valid for one weekday’s admission to either SeaWorld Orlando or Busch Gardens Tampa and must be used by May 5, 2014.
