2022 Passport to Thrills Celebration

Have you heard about the record-breaking hybrid coaster coming to Busch Gardens in March of 2022? The ALL-NEW Iron Gwazi will take thrills to new heights as North America’s tallest and the world’s fastest and steepest hybrid coaster, opening just in time for Spring Break!

If you have an Annual Pass, you now have an exclusive opportunity to experience it as a VIP – and all it takes is a little fun at the park between now and then!

In addition to regular Pass Member previews, we’re planning an exclusive Passport to Thrills Celebration night, featuring Iron Gwazi. This exclusive VIP after-hours event will include dedicated ride time, special entertainment, refreshments and more. To complete the Passport to Thrills program, just visit Busch Gardens Tampa Bay three times by Dec. 31, 2021 and we’ll email you an invitation.
