Update: single-day Christmas Town tickets now available starting at $16!

Busch Gardens Williamsburg has released some information about Christmas Town 2016 discounted tickets:

For the first time ever, we are offering daily ticket prices during this holiday event, so buy early to get the best deal of the season…
Christmas Town Single-Day Tickets sold online will start as low as $16 when tickets go on sale November 1. Prices for a given day may increase as the available tickets for that day begin to sell out, up to a maximum price of $38. The earlier you buy, the greater the chance of getting the best value. Single-Day Tickets sold at the park on the day of visit are always $38.

No special “Twinkle Ticket” sales this year. There will still be some promotional discounts with partners like Dunkin’ Donuts (I can’t tell for sure if this rules out a Groupon/Living Social deal, but probably does). There were a lot of complaints about overcrowding on the Twinkle Ticket days last year, and this appears to be Busch Gardens’ attempt to manage crowding issues better through variable pricing. A Christmas Town Fun Card – allowing unlimited visits – costs $38.

Busch Gardens has been offering free passes to preschoolers for a while, but Kings Dominion recently announced that it will be doing the same for the upcoming season:

Make your child’s fun unlimited and experience the NEW Planet Snoopy Expansion with unlimited visits to Kings Dominion for FREE! Our limited-time Kings Dominion Pre-K Pass is brand new for 2017 and grants complimentary admission to children age three to five years for the entire 2017 season.
Registration is now available online. Pre-K Pass can be redeemed between September 3, 2016 and April 30, 2017 at the park. Must register online or via mobile app before arrival. Proof of age required to redeem.

More information and FAQs

Kings Dominion is open for the last weekend of the season this Friday through Sunday, so if your child is turning 6 this winter you could go to redeem it this weekend (as long as they are 5 when you get the pass, they’re eligible); the pass redemption center is located outside of the park so you don’t have to be going for a visit, BUT there is a $15 parking fee.

ALSO, if you are getting a pass for yourself, the Gold Passes are on sale for $90 for three more days, then the price will increase. Gold Pass gets you one visit this season, plus free parking next year, is valid through the fall next year, etc. Silver Passes will go on sale shortly; they are cheaper but don’t have parking and expire at Labor Day 2017.
