Busch Gardens theme park in Williamsburg, Virginia is a great place to spend the Fourth of July weekend.  I love the fireworks shows they have at Busch Gardens Williamsburg.

And they have a lot of other fun activities as part of Busch Garden’s Summer Celebration.  You can read more about that here.

But there is another reason you should associate the 4th of July with Busch Gardens Williamsburg.  And that is the wonderful Fourth of July Sale at Busch Gardens!

This is a wonderful sale that helps you save so much money on your admission to Busch Gardens.  You’ll be able to save up to 50% on your tickets!

A lot of different ticket options are on sale.  I want to tell you about all those options.

General Admission Ticket

First of all, general admission tickets are on sale.  This is what you should get if you’ll only be in Williamsburg for a few days and won’t be able to visit multiple times this year.  If you are able to visit Williamsburg more, you might want to consider a Fun Card or Membership Card, which I’ll talk about later.

Anyway, the sale is really great right now on General Admission Tickets.  It can give you admission to Busch Gardens and Water Country USA, their waterpark (find out more about Water Country USA here).  And you can save up to 50% on your ticket!

Here are the different ticket options that are on sale:

  • Date Specific Ticket
    • Admission to one day at Busch Gardens Williamsburg for a specific date
  • 2-Day Ticket
    • Admission for two days at Busch Gardens and/or Water Country USA waterpark (when open)
  • Three-Day Ticket
    • Admission for three days at Busch Gardens and/or Water Country USA waterpark (when open)

You also have the option of adding All-Day Dining to your ticket option.  This is a great way to save even more on your visit to Busch Gardens.  We go over why an All-Day Dining ticket is worth it here.

Fun Cards

Are you planning on visiting Williamsburg more than once this summer?  Or are you visiting Williamsburg for say a week and want the option to visit Busch Gardens and/or Water Country USA multiple times during the week?

Then the Fun Card is a great option for you.  It’s incredibly affordable.  It’s not much more expensive than a 1-day ticket.  And it’s even more affordable right now.  You can currently save up to 40% on a Fun Card!

There are two different Fun Card Options.  You can get one just for Busch Gardens Williamsburg.  Or for just $25 more, you can include Water Country USA in your Fun Card by purchasing a 2-Park Fun Card.

Membership Cards

Membership Cards are my favorite ticket option for Busch Gardens.  My family all has a membership and we love it.  You can get admission to Busch Gardens and Water Country USA for a whole year!  You can pay all at once or per month.

The great thing about a Membership Card is that it allow you to visit this summer.  And then you can use it for the great seasonal events at Busch Gardens.  You can use it for admission to both Howl-O-Scream and Christmas Town!

The lowest Membership Card option is a 2-Park Basic Membership.  You get admission for 12 months, but there are blockout dates.  You can see the blockout dates here.

If you don’t want any blockout dates you can move up to 2-Park Unlimited Membership. This gives you other extra perks, like up to 20% off in-park discounts and free tickets for guests.  But the best extra perk is free general parking.  That alone might actually make the 2-Park Unlimited Membership more affordable, especially if you visit the park a lot.

You can also go up to a 2-Park Premier Memberships.  This gives you better perks, like more extra guest tickets and up to 30% off in-park purchases.  But the best extra perk for this membership level is you get free preferred parking!  My family really loves this.  You get to go to a special parking lot right outside the England section of the park.  Getting into the park is so much faster with this ticket option.  You don’t even have to bother getting a tram to get out of the park.  This perk alone makes a higher membership option worth it to me.

The membership level my family has, though, is the top one.  The top membership level at Busch Gardens Williamsburg is the 11-Park Platinum Pass.  I love this because I like to travel not only to Williamsburg.  And this pass gets you admission to 11 different parks across America!  This includes all Sesame Place parks, all Busch Gardens parks, all SeaWorld parks, all Aquatica parks, and Adventure Island.  So say you are also planning a trip to Orlando this year.  SeaWorld and Aquatica would be free for you if you have an 11-Park Platinum Pass!

This Pass option also gives you other perks, like up to 50% in park discounts and one Single-Ride Quick Queue per visit.  That is great, espeically if you enjoy some of the popular rides at the park.

You can save over up to 25% on a membership pass.  Click here to get started booking the Membership Package.
