A 335-acre African-themed animal theme park located in the city of Tampa, Busch Gardens is an essential stop off for most families visiting Florida. Combining world-class thrill rides, live entertainment and more than 12,000 animals, there’s enough here to keep you entertained for days. Favourites include a 335-foot drop tower, a Cheetah Hunt, and a one-of-a-kind spin coaster.
There are a large number of online vendors selling discount Busch Gardens tickets, many of which offer superb value for money, particularly for families and other larger groups. To help you find the best option for your needs, we’ve dug deep and picked out three of the best companies currently selling Busch Gardens tickets online.
Best of Orlando
Best of Orlando offer a huge choice of tickets for attractions across the city, promising the cheapest available tickets anywhere online. The website is informative and easy to use, with all available deals laid out in a clear and uncomplicated way. When we searched for Busch Gardens tickets in September, we found tickets starting at $79 for single day passes all the way through to $240 for packages that include access to several other Orlando parks too. According to the site, these rates would sometimes represent savings of over $100 off official gate prices. Another plus point is that the website doesn’t charge any admin or credit card fees, and there’s also a 7-day-a-week call centre on hand to assist you with any queries.
If booking Orlando attraction tickets at the same time as your hotel appeals, then Reserve Orlando could be for you. The website offers ticket and hotel packages that deliver a major saving compared with booking them individually. On searching for Busch Gardens packages, we found some great looking ticket and hotel deals, with one of them representing a $33 saving. Once you’ve completed your booking, the website emails you e-tickets which you can then print at home at your convenience. The company’s cancellation policy is good too, with a full refund offered up until a week prior to your visit. Other perks include an online video section where a reporter visits Orlando and reports back on their experience.
Orlando Fun Tickets
Established in 2001, Orlando Fun Tickets claims to sell 8 million tickets for Orlando attractions each year. Negotiating directly with Disney and other theme parks, they are able to offer great value deals for all of the region’s favourite theme parks, including Busch Gardens, claiming to save you anywhere up to 30% in the process. Tickets can be purchased either online or on the phone, with orders sent either as an e-ticket or to a home address or hotel of your choice. Tickets are usually valid for a year after purchase and there are no credit card convenience fees either.
