Busch Gardens® is famous for its thrilling rides, one of the country’s premier zoos with up-close animal encounters, and many other attractions. Our admission tickets will be valid for park entrance as early as 10:00 am, when Busch Gardens opens to the public. Feel free to come at your leisure but please plan to arrive before park closing as admission gates close at 6:00 pm. Please keep in mind, if you rent an all day locker you must empty it before heading to our party. Temporary lockers are available during our party near Scorpion, Kumba, Cheetah Hunt, Cobra’s Curse and Montu.
If you would like to purchase a new Busch Gardens annual pass (including the Fun Card promotion), your admission ticket can get you a $45 credit. Go to any ticket window, or Guest Relations at the Adventure Outpost near the turnstiles the day of the picnic before our APG party at 6:00 pm when these windows close. (One admission ticket per guest, not valid for pass renewals).
We will have exclusive use of Pantopia & Egypt, where we will enjoy unlimited rides on Cheetah Hunt, Cobra’s Curse, Montu, Falcon’s Fury, Kumba, Scorpion, Sand Serpent, Phoenix, Bumper Cars, Grand Caravan Carousel and kiddie rides. We will test our skills in the games areas with free unlimited game play. Kids of all ages can join the characters from Sesame Street at the dance party near the carousel.
Twisted Tails Pretzels will serve delicious fresh-rolled pretzels and nuggets, covered in their signature blends of colorful and flavorful salts and sugars. Kettle Corn will offer kettle corn, icees, and ice cream novelties. Egypt will have similar snacks along with churros. Enjoy free of charge, along with fresh brewed coffee, hot chocolate, bottled water, soft drinks, beer and wine throughout the entire evening.
A delicious dinner buffet will be prepared for us at the Dragon Fire Grill. Check your dinner voucher for the time of your seating and present your voucher at the entrance of the restaurant during that time. Dinner will include marinated grilled chicken, hamburgers and hot dogs. Side items will be garden salad, black beans and rice, baked beans, vegetable medley and homemade apple crisp.
Our event ends at 10:00 pm. We will exit the park out of the Nairobi Gate. Event guides along the pathways will help direct us to the exit.
