Busch Gardens Membership Plans – Exclusive Benefits and Monthly Rewards!
UPDATED MARCH 11, 2020
Busch Gardens, along with their joint park Water Country USA has just updated their 2020 Annual Pass Membership Plans. The best time to get a 2020 Membership for Busch Gardens® and Water Country USA® is right now.
Joining today at one of four custom benefits levels means getting all the perks of the year ahead including the highly-anticipated launch of the new, record-breaking Pantheon® coaster as well as access to 2019’s upcoming Howl-O-Scream® and Christmas Town®.
An annual Membership provides unparalleled park-going opportunities, from a year-long events calendar packed with new reasons to visit, to exclusive members-only discounts and rewards.
With low monthly pricing, guests can enjoy all of the thrilling rides and exhilarating shows plus gain access to seasonal and special events. Learn more about Busch Gardens Monthly Rewards for their members below!
Also, something many people don’t know about these memberships is that they unlock special savings with Park Add-Ons. Not only do you get discounts on Dining deals, but you can also take advantage of special savings on Cabana rentals, and ticket purchases at other Sea World & Entertainment theme parks.
Park guests can choose from a selection of entrées at any of the parks’ popular restaurants each time they visit the Williamsburg theme parks now through Jan. 3, 2021. This new plan is available for $139.99 per person. (AN EXTREME VALUE GUYS!)
Highlights of the new All-Season Dining Pass include:
- Members can enjoy the most value by combining a new or existing Membership product with an All-Season Dining Pass.
- Members can also customize their All-Season Dining Pass with options such as an All-Season Beverage Plan or the option to extend their dining to a waterpark add-on.
- A wide variety of delicious meals and snacks from the parks’ restaurants like Das Festhaus, Marco Polo’s Marketplace, Catalina Grille Diner, Boardwalk Southwest Grill and Trapper’s Smokehouse.
- New offerings like the recently introduced Impossible Burger are also available, which is part of SeaWorld Parks & Entertainment’s commitment to providing more plant-based and sustainably-sourced food options across its family of parks.
To learn more about Busch Gardens All-Season Dining Pass and offerings, visit the park’s Membership page, guest service areas at the front of the park or any participating park restaurant.

CHOOSE THE MEMBERSHIP PLAN THAT BEST FITS YOUR FAMILY
The Basic Membership includes 50% off of General Parking, while the Unlimited Membership offers Free General Parking. The Premier Membership and Platinum Membership offer Free Preferred Parking at Virginia theme park locations.
My opinion of the parking and memberships is to always go for membership with the Free Parking option. If you plan to visit the park more than 4 times this year, it’s worth it to opt for the Unlimited Membership simply to skip the parking fees.
Discounts on Dining and Shopping
The Basic and Unlimited Membership includes 10% off Dining and shopping purchases, while the Premiere Membership offers 15% off Dining and shopping. Platinum offers 20% off dining and shopping throughout the parks, offering the best discount. These discounts apply to dining deals and all in-park purchases. I highly suggest you put those discounts to use and grab a Member Refillable Drink Cup. They offer free refills on the day of purchase and then discounted refills throughout the year. Save oodles of money throughout the year all the while keeping your family refreshed throughout their day of play.
Exclusive Events & Sneak Peek Days
Look out for member emails that will be sharing exclusive events and sneak peek days at both parks.
PhotoKey is available for Premier and Platinum Member’s, it’s perfect for capturing those fun family moments throughout the park. The Photokey is available at Photo Stations and Park Photographers. Using your PhotoKey is easy. Keep your PhotoKey handy all day long so you can easily build a collection of photos from all of your favorite rides and attractions! Easily share and grab your photos online from your phone or print them out later when you get home.
Ride Again Access
Available for Platinum Members, Ride Again allows Members to ride an additional time without having to re-board the attraction. This works out great during peak season or busy park days.
The Basic, Limited and Premiere Memberships all offer unlimited visits to Busch Gardens in Williamsburg VA, as well as Water Country USA. The Platinum membership offers unlimited access to all 11 theme parks under the SeaWorld Parks & Entertainment umbrella.
