Busch antes up: SeaWorld Orlando offers 'buy three nights, get two free' deal
. So's Universal
. Now Busch is offering an aggressive discount in an attempt to draw visitors to Orlando, despite the lousy economy
Here's the deal from SeaWorld: Buy a 3-night/3-day package and get 2 additional nights free, including unlimited admission to your choice of SeaWorld and Aquatica or SeaWorld and Busch Gardens Africa (in Tampa) during your stay.
Packages are available through June 26, 2009 and start at $561 for a family of four. The deal must be booked before March 31.
Update: You know I love online votes. So let's put this one to a vote:
To review, Disney and Universal are offering buy four hotel nights, get three free (though lesser discounts are available for shorter stays at Universal), and SeaWorld's got buy 3, get 2. At Disney and SeaWorld you buy the tickets for four- or three-day theme park tickets to get the extra days free; Universal you get seven days for the price of two on the park ticket (available with or without the hotel deal).
Tell us in the comments if you've booked any of these deals, and what cliched it for you. If not, tell us what more the parks need to do to entice you to book a trip.
The Universal deal wasn't available to Canadians, despite that we watch the Superbowl, too, so I can't say it's a great deal for me. SeaWorld's deal is good, but I can't see needing 5 nights (let alone 3) at two theme parks that take 1 day each to see.
We're going to Orlando in late July/early August (horrid weather, I know...), so I haven't booked anything yet.
Robert - late July/early August is normally a very busy time in Orlando. The benefit is that you will get to catch all the parks' night time extravaganzas (Universal 360 has never been shown during one of my off-season visits), something not available in less busy times. The down-side, of course, is the parks will be swamped and hot.
I typically visit Orlando about three times a year. Only once is an actually family vacation, though, the other visits tend to be working trips when I'm doing interviews or attending press events at the parks.
That makes much more sense.
I have them for Disneyland (which includes California Adventure) and Universal Studios Hollywood. Had one for Legoland, but the drive was too long for us visiting more than once a year. Ditto for SeaWorld.
