SeaWorld, Busch Gardens End “Fun Cards”

ORLANDO (CBS4) – In an effort to capitalize on improving attendance figures and a number of new attractions, SeaWorld Orlando and Busch Gardens Tampa Bay are ending their popular ‘buy one day – come back the rest of the year for free’ promotion which they had offered to residents of Florida and Georgia.

Starting Wednesday the $79.99 “Fun Cards” will be a thing of the past and instead they are being replaced by annual passes which begin at $109.99. The annual passes are good for 365 days from the date of purchase and come with free parking.

Last week Busch Gardens Tampa Bay opened their brand new $40 million “Cheetah Hunt” roller coaster and animal habitat.
