Busch Gardens offers free meal plan with admission
Busch Gardens Tampa
has announced that for every single-day admission into its park... you can eat and drink for free. Here are the details
. The offer is good through September 6, 2010.
This offer applies only for full-price admission and does not apply for the season passes or the "Fun Card." What about the food? Participants can get a main course, side dish, and a drink at any of the participating, cafeteria-style restaurants, but does not include baby back ribs or beer (darn!). On hot days, you can just go in to the restaurant, grab a cool water bottle, and leave. (niiiiice)
I think this news comes rather late in terms of summer deals, but it's a great freebie nonetheless. At the same time, one has to wonder how attendance is at Busch Gardens that the park is feeling the need to offer to free meals.
It's a nice thought, but they should have something for the Season Pass holders, too. Maybe free fountain drinks or something like that.
You cant get crazy with offers like this, otherwise people will come to expect it. Obviously season pass and fun card holders are more likely to visit the park, so they do not need as much incentive.
BGE has something where for $27, you get a bracelet and can get an entree and a drink, I am guessing there is no limit to this? I called and tried to get the lady to nail down what exactly you get for the $27, and apparently this is it. No snacks and I believe no sides. The sadistic part of me is thinking about buying one of these and just seeing how much food I can stuff down in one day.
Hey Scott, that sounds like the meal deal. BGT has that too. And it IS unlimited. Just like the above offer it's good at all the cafeteria-style dining areas and covers all the drinks (minus beer). Of course, there's no sharing and some foods aren't covered.
This is like made for my family as we were just getting ready to purchase a Meal Deal there for our vacation! Talk about timing!
Another public rip off from these overpriced parks... They need to take care of the folks who have always been there.. "Season Pass" holders... Why cant these big corporate giants ever do the right thing from the start?? it always takes a BP "oil Spill" problem for them to turn around and do right....
The following seems like a much better deal than the all day meal plan.. eat breakfast before you get there and have a late lunch here....
I was in Busch Gardens during the second week of May and it was actually busier than some of the other parks in the Orlando area.
I have never posted here on the site before until now. Why do season pas holders feel liked they are owed something by the park, you already have a great deal... Spend some money to support your park of choice, just because you have a pass doesn't mean you are any more special than the other day visitors.
I agree with the last comment. Just because a person isn't a season pass holder doesn't mean they aren't supporting the park. Some of us live in the area of the country where it would make no sense to have season passes just because of distance logistics. Anyone who purchases any ticket(s) to these parks is supporting it...
