The Tampa Bay CityPASS gives you access to five attractions, including Busch Gardens, at a deep discount, while other packages roll in admission to area water parks. On extra busy days at Busch Gardens, it may pay to purchase Quick Queue to bypass lines for the most popular rides.

Tampa Bay CityPASS
With our purchase of Tampa Bay City Passes our experience of visiting the attractions was simple and quick once we arrived at the locations. Also having the benefit of planning ahead of time and being provided with reminders and easy steps to acquire the purchased tickets is really a great convenience. I can resume the experience of having city passes for our family of four as a great way to enjoy some savings and having a great time at the amenities we wanted to see.

How to Use Child Swap

Like many other major theme parks, Busch Gardens offers Child Swap for parents who are with a child too small to ride an attraction. This allows one adult to ride alone or with an older child, while the other adult waits with the small child; then they swap so the waiting adult can ride, relieving both adults from having to wait in line.
