Daily Getaway For Friday May 30: Theme Park Tickets To SeaWorld and Busch Gardens
- Visit Any SeaWorld park for $49 (900 available)
- Visit Any Busch Gardens park for $45 (640 available)
The prices offered in this deal are substantially cheaper than what’s available through the SeaWorld and Busch Gardens websites (even for children), so it’s worth buying if you know you’ll be visiting one of these parks within the next year.
Normally, an advance-purchase one day weekend ticket for SeaWorld costs $80 for either an adult or child (ages 3+), while weekday tickets are $65. The cost is between $15-$30 higher if you purchase upon arrival at the park. Therefore, the $49 package is a great deal, and since there are many available, I suggest taking advantage if you know you'll be visiting SeaWorld. You can buy up to six.
The same costs apply for Busch Garden tickets, and since the Daily Getaway price is even lower at $45, this is also a deal worth jumping on if you plan to visit the theme park soon. Don't forget to use an Amex card to save an extra 10%!
