Busch parks to be renamed 'Worlds of Discovery'; new ticket options announced
Busch Entertainment Corporation family of adventure parks announced today they will now be known as Worlds of Discovery.
“Guests will come to know that through the Worlds of Discovery parks, they will have the opportunity to come closer to the world we share,” says Jim Atchison, incoming president and chief operating officer of Busch Entertainment Corporation. “It’s our culture and our heritage to present quality products, support conservation efforts and offer guests a real sense of discovery and learning.”
The Worlds of Discovery parks include SeaWorld parks in Orlando, San Diego and San Antonio; Busch Gardens Africa and Adventure Island in Tampa Bay and Busch Gardens Europe and Water Country USA in Williamsburg, Va.; Discovery Cove in Orlando; and Sesame Place near Philadelphia. Aquatica, SeaWorld’s waterpark, is set to open next spring in Orlando.
New ticket options allow guests to save by buying packages and ordering ahead. The more parks a guest adds, the greater the value. For example, a two-park ticket that combines both SeaWorld and Aquatica will be available for $89.95 – a savings of $16.95 per person compared to when purchased separately. A three-park ticket that includes SeaWorld, Aquatica and Busch Gardens is $134.95 – a savings of $36.90 per person. A ticket package that includes SeaWorld, Aquatica, Universal Studios, Islands of Adventure and Wet & Wild is also available for $234.95.
The parks offer special savings and benefits for guests who purchase tickets in advance and online. Guests who plan ahead and purchase at least seven days in advance receive:
• Adult tickets at kid’s prices on single-park and multi-park tickets.
• Unlimited admission flexibility through length of stay on all multi-park tickets.
• Round-trip transportation between Orlando and Busch Gardens.
• E-tickets that can be printed at home.
The “Pay for a Day” offer allows Florida residents a calendar year of unlimited admission to either SeaWorld or Busch Gardens for the price of a single-day ticket. The “Pay for a Day” offer will be available starting Nov. 26, and will be the same as a single-day admission of $67.95 at SeaWorld and $64.95 at Busch Gardens.
I still miss the free beer. Hubby won’t even go now. Bad publicity move.
