The selection of Busch Gardens Williamsburg tickets, memberships, and vacation packages continues to change in both benefits and structure for the 2016 season. To help our readers decide which option is best for them, we have summarized all of them below. Please be sure to note that some offers expire this month and some are only available online. We hope this roll-up is useful.


 

Single Day Tickets

There are currently a variety of single-day Busch Gardens Williamsburg tickets available for sale. It is worth noting that unless you are interested in the All-Inclusive ticket, which looks like a great deal, the Fun Card gets you much more value for the same price. I have summarized them in this comparison chart below.

Type Price Dates Extras Restrictions
BGW Single Day Adult: $77
Child (3-9): $67
Mar 20 – Oct 30  None None
WCUSA Single Day Adult: $52
Child (3-9): $45
May 21 – Sep 5 None None
BGW All-Inclusive $99 Mar 20 – May 15 Parking, Quick Queue, Lunch, and Dinner Online Only

Fun Cards

Fun Cards are a great deal for someone who wants to visit the parks all summer, but does not want to pay for an annual pass. They do not have the same benefits as the memberships, and they do not include Howl-O-Scream, but they do give you unlimited visits through Labor Day. Some people invest in one annual pass and purchase Fun Cards for the rest of the family.

I want to highlight that the limited time Two Park Fun Card costs the same as the BGW Fun Card, but includes WCUSA. It is a different ticket option, so you will not get the WCUSA add-on, if you select the normal Fun Card.

Type Price Dates Restrictions
BGW Fun Card $77 Mar 20 – Sep 5 None
WCUSA Fun Card $52 May 21 – Sep 5 None
Two Park Fun Card $77 Mar 20 – Sep 5 Online Only
Offer Expires Mar 15

Multi-Day Tickets

This year there are a wide variety of multiple park tickets and passes. Some only include the Virginia SeaWorld parks and others give guests access to Colonial Williamsburg, as well. The duration and number of visits vary.

I would also note that the Two Park Fun Card costs less than the Two Park Summer Flex ticket and allows you to visit the parks more often.

Park Memberships

Park Memberships all provide unlimited visits for 12 months, excluding Christmas Town, which is a separately ticketed event for everyone. Unlike most of the ticket options above, these passes offer additional benefits like discounts and free parking. The perks can and do change, so I am basing the information in this table entirely on the data provided on the purchase page. Additional special events and offers can be found on the pass member site.

These passes can be purchased annually for full price, or members can use the EZpay system to pay monthly. Currently, the latter will lock in your annual rate for five years.
