Cooler temperatures, fall foliage and the haunting fun of Halloween make the months of September and October a great time to visit Busch Gardens. As with the summer months, the park has rolled out a wide variety of coupons, offers and in-park deals to give guests even more reason to visit the Williamsburg park.
Wendy’s restaurants in Norfolk, Richmond, Roanoke, Charlottesville, Harrisonburg and Northern Virginia and Raleigh, North Carolina have discount coupons for the fall season at Busch Gardens. Papa John's Pizza in Norfolk and Richmond, Virginia have the same coupon. Both offer $7 off of general park admission, or $14 off if purchased online. The Papa John's coupon also donates $1 to breast cancer research. The $14 code off can only be used online.
Waves of Honor
Waves of Honor is the park's military tribute program. There are two deals going on right now. The current program offers free admission to SeaWorld Parks to active-duty military members. The park just rolled out an online discount program that gives military veterans, as well as active-duty members, a 50% discount to SeaWorld Parks, which includes Busch Gardens.
Christmas Town 2013
Christmas Town is a hard-ticket event, meaning you must purchase a ticket for it, even if you are an annual pass holder. This year, Busch Gardens has implemented a special Christmas Town Pass for annual pass holders. The Christmas Town Pass will be available as an add-on for active annual pass members. It will provide unlimited admission to Christmas Town for the 2013 season. This $30 pass add-on is the same price as a Christmas Town single-day ticket and pass members will retain their membership benefits, including free parking and in-park discounts.
For a limited time, pass members can purchase the Christmas Town Pass add-on for $25. Visit bgwpass.com and log in with the pass member account for complete details. Fans of Christmas Town who don’t currently have an annual pass can visit buschgardens.com/va to become a pass member and then take advantage of this pass member exclusive offer.
Tickets to Busch Gardens can be purchased online.
Fall Fun Card
Similar to the Summer Fun Pass, the Fall Fun Card lets guests pay for a one-day admission and enjoy day time fun and Howl-O-Scream frights through October 27, 2013. The Fall Fun Card does not include parking and is not valid for Christmas Town.
Purchase a one-park annual pass for just $10 per month on EZpay, or a one-time payment of $120. Annual pass holders receive free general parking, in-park discounts on food and merchandise and reduced pricing on single-day tickets for friends and family.
In-park discounts and other pass holder perks such as invitations to exclusive ride nights and appreciation weekends, unlimited admission to Howl-O-Scream and discounts on the popular Christmas Town all make an annual pass a must-have for people who enjoy Busch Gardens Williamsburg. The food and beverage discount really helped this Examiner stretch the budget during the Food and Wine Festival, which will be returning in 2014.
Annual pass holders receive a host of exclusive discounts and offers throughout the park, including 30 percent off of all merchandise at The Emporium in England, $10 souvenir photos at any photo location in the park and exclusive access to experience the “Tastes of Busch Gardens” menu (an additional fee applies). To redeem or receive discounts, pass holders must show their pass. For complete details, please visit bgwpass.com.
All-You-Can-Drink Souvenir Cups
One of this Examiner’s favorite theme park items is the refillable mug. The Howl-O-Scream all-you-can-drink souvenir cup is $11.99. After purchase, enjoy unlimited fountain drinks, iced tea, lemonade, fruit punch and ICEE refills. The Howl-O-Scream hot beverage souvenir cup is $9.99 and allows guests to enjoy unlimited coffee, hot chocolate or apple cider refills. The refills are redeemable through October 27, 2013.
