Busch gardens christmas town deal!

If anyone has a season pass to Busch gardens, you can get a christmas town ticket for half off ($13.50), PLUS get one free!! Bought 6 this morning and only paid for 3 at half price! 13.50 for 2! 40.50 for 6!!! It said limited supplies, so they might run out!

My Mom called me on my lunch break to tell me about this. Her and my Dad have passes and bought 12. My fiance and I both have platinum passes, but I think my parent's 12 passes are enough. I like going to Christmas Town, but not THAT much .

In case anyone is wondering I called & it is not good in Tampa. They only offer passholders $10 off/ticket instead of the half price deal they have in Williamsburg. Oh well, I am going to wait until next year and hope they have a better offer because the price just seems too high for what it is.

I bought my tickets earlier today too... the only thing is that you have to give the name of the person who will use the ticket and they have to be a passholder. Just as an FYI. We are a family of 3 - I thought we could use a ticket for one of my DD's friends to come along... but no.

Although you can buy a discounted guest ticket for $20 - which will save $7 off of regular price.

I looked around the website and am excited about the different holiday events going on - park is open 3 to 10 most nights (3-9 others). The New Verbolten is going to be running, however not the other coasters. Also the Mach Tower is reprogrammed to take you up, then come down at a slower rate, while turning so you can see the lights around the park (at least that's how I read the description).

Since I can't make it to Disney (we went in October this year)... I guess BG will have to do!

Was it your experience too that everyone has to be a passholder to use the discounted tickets?

Everything I'm finding says that the tickets must be purchased by a pass member, but that they can be used by anyone that you name on the ticket .

Happened to me too! I had logged in the day before just to be sure I knew my passwords, had my pass #, etc. Site crashed, wouldn't connect, etc. I just kept the website up and let it "cook" - it would finally connect and display the information to put the tickets in your basket. There is a special box that you put the quantity of paid tickets you want - then the box under you put in the number of free tickets you want. When the final page loads, after payment, it has where you fill in the names of the people who will be using the tickets.

I just printed out the tickets and under "Legal Terms" it says:

This eTicket may not be copied, transferred or resold and is only valid for the person listed on the eTicket. Photocopies will not be accepted. Ticket void if altered. Not redeemable for cash. Tickets and passes are non-refundable.

Ticket expires Dec. 31, 2012.

As I mentioned you had to put fill in the "passholder's name" when initially purchasing the tickets.

I would love to be wrong about it though!

They have stated on their facebook page that you can just write in "guest" instead of a name & that would be fine. We finally got through yesterday & bought 6, one of those being for my DD's fiance who does not have a season pass. They are doing it again today from 10-2 because of the problems yesterday.

I was finally able to get my tickets today! No problem with the wesbite!
Yes it is for Williamsburg Va only.. I was able to put Guest as the names of the tickets I was not sure who were going to use them but I did put my names of the tickets I knew.
They must be purchased by a pass member..through the passmember site as you have to put in your barcode and zip to access the ticket discount... You have only until 2pm today.. They wont extent it again..
