What is the Busch Gardens Tampa Bay & Adventure Island Preschool Card?
Busch Gardens and Adventure Island are delighted to offer the 2020 Busch Gardens & Adventure Island Preschool Card. This FREE card grants kids ages 5 and younger complimentary admission to Busch Gardens Tampa Bay through December 31, 2020 and to Adventure Island through the end of the 2020 season.
How do I register?
Add the Preschool Card product to your cart and checkout as normal. You will be asked for your child's name and birth date at the final step of checkout.
After you checkout, you will receive an email containing a PDF version of your child's actual Preschool Card. This is your child's Preschool Card, which you can either print out or download on your mobile device to scan at the front gate for entrance.
For future visits, we recommend accessing your barcodes from your mobile device. Login to the Pass Member website, click the "Account" tab and scroll down to view your barcodes. These barcodes can be used to enter the park. Apple device users may also add them to their Apple Wallet. If you wish to receive a wallet-size version of your child's Preschool Card, please scan your PDF at Zone A, self-service kiosks, to print one. Please note that printing a wallet-size Preschool Card produces a new barcode and deactivates your previous barcode, including any saved in your mobile device which may need to be updated manually.
Guests may be requested to show valid form of ID (a copy of a certified birth certificate or travel passport) to verify age prior to entry. Parents/guardians should also have a photo ID with proof of their Florida residential address.
Where do I receive the Preschool Card?
This offer is not available at the front gates. You MUST register your child online before you get to the park.
Who is eligible?
The Busch Gardens & Adventure Island Preschool Card is available for kids who are Florida residents and are 5 years old and younger at the time of first visit to the park in 2020.
What kind of identification do I need to provide?
Guests are no longer required to visit the Zone B Ticket Windows to redeem their Preschool Card. After registering online, your child's Preschool Card will be turnstile-ready. However, if a child does not appear to be the appropriate age, guests may be requested to show valid form of ID (a copy of a certified birth certificate or travel passport) to verify age prior to entry. Please note that school IDs or children security IDs will NOT be accepted. Parents/guardians should have a photo ID with proof of their Florida residential address.
Foster parents would need to complete the Preschool Card online registration. Then bring the Preschool Card confirmation page and a copy of your Department of Children and Families paperwork from a foster agency that includes the foster child’s name and their date of birth to the front gate ticket windows at Busch Gardens Tampa Bay or Adventure Island (Zone B). Please black out any personal information on this copy of the paperwork like social security number, Medicaid number, etc... Foster parent should have a photo ID with proof of their Florida residential address and their foster license for verification.
My child is 5 this year, turning 6. Am I still eligible?
As long as your child is 5 years of age on or before your first visit to the park, your child is eligible.
Do I have to be a Florida resident?
Yes. We want to offer our neighbors who are 5 and younger unlimited access in 2020 to all that our parks have to offer. This gives Florida residents the chance to experience all of the wonderful family-friendly attractions and events at Busch Gardens and Adventure Island.
How long is the Busch Gardens & Adventure Island Preschool Card valid for?
The card is valid through December 31, 2020 at Busch Gardens and through the end of the 2020 season at Adventure Island. Please visit AdventureIsland.com for days of operation prior to visit.
