I was just browsing the Busch site and I found the latest promo... a Twilight Ticket... Tickets are $50 and are for admission after 3 pm and dinner... Here is what the page says...

"Save big when you visit Busch Gardens after 3 p.m. Twilight admission is just $50 ($47.27 plus tax) and includes dinner. Celebrate summer with starlit nights, cooler temperatures and through August 19th, celebrate IllumiNights, a nightly park-wide extravaganza culminating in a firework spectacular that lights up the sky.

I know that Cedar Fair has late admission tickets and it now looks like SEA has jumped on-board with the idea. Here is the link to the page. Here is the Link to the Blog post about it... It's been around for a couple of days... I'm surprised that no one has posted this yet.

I saw it but I didn't want to jump the gun. But perhaps we can place this in the deals thread, along with the fact water country now accepts the preschool pass.

I think it's about time BG offered a ticket like this; other parks have been doing it for ages.

It should atleast be half off. A family of 4 is still gonna spend over $200 going just on parking and tickets alone. Not worth it imo.

A little over twice that amount and that family of four could enjoy the park for an entire season. JMO

With a month (6 weeks?) of 100+ degree weather and nightly thunderstorms, is it a surprise attendance is slacking?

Looking at other regions with similar conditions... I wouldn't consider that the reason ;) you know me

When you reach near capacity on a Tuesday or a Wednesday because it happens to be under 90 degrees for the first time in weeks (or when you have 12,000 people in the park on a Saturday because it 104 degrees), it's the weather that's impacting attendance. Trust me ;)

I went wednesday evening and the overflow lot was half full so I kept driving. Last night after the storm was great weather and low crowds. As far as a twilight ticket I would never go that route. I live 5 hrs away an still bought 2 year dual park passes. It is much more cost effective. It just doesn't make sense to me to be within an evening drive to the park and not be a pass member.

I will take your word on that one then, sir! Heading to 100* air in Florida for jam packed parks in two weeks :D

Just got back from Hershey last weekend, and they do a deal like this....

get to the park 2 and a half hours before close, pay for your ticket and parking then, and you get the next days admission and parking "free".

this might be a great idea during HOS...
