Here’s the deal with Busch Gardens:
If you think you’ll make a few visits this summer, spring for the Fun Card ($66.99) for all but one family member (obviously if you have a preschooler, get them the free Preschool Pass!). One adult – whomever will be going most frequently – should probably purchase an Annual Pass ($119.99 full price) that comes with free parking. Skip to the pass section for more info about deals on passes.
