2020 Member Sneak Peek SpectacularFebruary 12, 2020
While the spring season at Busch Gardens Williamsburg officially kicks off March 15, on March 14, from 10 a.m. – 8 p.m., we will be hosting all of our Members for an exclusive, Members-only Sneak Peek of what’s new and what’s returning for the Busch Gardens 2020 season.

*Annual Passes, Military Passes, and Preschool Passes are not valid for Member Sneak. Member Free Guest Tickets are also not valid for Member Sneak Peek. Each guest must have a valid Membership to attend.
What will be happening at the Sneak Peek?
In celebration of Busch Gardens Williamsburg’s 45th Anniversary, we have a day jam-packed with giveaways, thrills, shows and entertainment, and special offers planned for our Members!
Join us at 11 a.m. at the Member Town Hall in the park’s Abbey Stone Theatre featuring Park President, Kevin Lembke. We’ll take a look back at Busch Gardens Williamsburg over the past 45 years and a look forward at some of the exciting events coming in 2020. We will also have a Pantheon update, Summer Nights talent reveal, plus many more surprises. Be sure to arrive early as space is limited.
It’s Kevin’s Day of Giveaways! To celebrate our 45th Anniversary, we’ve hidden 45 celebratory balloon cutouts throughout the park! Search hard to find one and win a special prize! If you find a cutout, just head to the Upgrade Center to redeem it for a fun gift. Be sure to use the hashtag #BGW45 and #ShareMyBGWStory for a chance to be featured on our social media channels.
Many of our award-winning rides and coasters will be open, including the All-New Finnegan’s Flyer. If you haven’t had the chance to experience the sights of Ireland while swinging 80 feet in the air – now is your chance!

Why is it a “Members-Only” Sneak Peek?
We love our Members and Sneak Peek days are just one of the ways we thank you throughout the year. Other Sneak Peeks will occur before Howl-O-Scream and Christmas Town, allowing our Members to exclusively experience these special events before the general public. Aside from Sneak Peeks, there are many other great benefits to becoming a Busch Gardens Williamsburg Member, including repeat admission*; parking, dining, and shopping discounts, monthly rewards, and free and discounted guest tickets. This Spring, Members will also be among the first to ride our newest roller coaster, Pantheon! Join Membership today to access all of these benefits, and more, and join us March 14 for Member Sneak Peek!
