Busch Gardens will continue its campaign to get day visitors to the park this fall with a new version of the seasonal Fun Card.
The Williamsburg amusement park has offered a Summer Fun Card for Virginia residents for several years, with $59.95 getting each passholder admission from opening day through Labor Day. This fall Busch will offer another fun card for the state’s residents. The price is the same as the summer – $59.95 – but the season it buys much shorter.
The new pass, available for purchase starting Sept. 8, is valid for unlimited admission Sept. 11 through Nov. 1. The park is open Friday through Saturday for those eight weeks, for a total of 24 days.
One thing the pass offers that a summer pass does not is Howl-O-Scream, the park’s 11th annual “fright fest” with scare zones, haunted attractions and Halloween-themed live shows.http://www.howl-o-scream.com
Over at Water Country USA, selected pass members are being offered the opportunity to bring a friend to the park for free from today, Mon., Aug. 31 through closing day on Labor Day, Mon., Sept. 7.
All Platinum, 2-Park and Water Country USA 1-Park members may bring a friend for free. Those who are not yet pass holders may buy a pass this week, bring a friend for free once before the season closes, then use their Water Country USA pass during the entire 2010 season.
