Busch Gardens brings back Fun Card

Busch Gardens Tampa Bay has brought its Fun Card back to life. That's the deal that offers anyone unlimited admission from now through Dec. 31, 2012, for the $79.99 price of a single day ticket or $71.99 for children ages 3 through 9. Attempting to wean itself off deep discounting, Busch said in May that it would stop marketing the Fun Card for the first time in six years. But visitors who asked for it by name were still able to buy the card at the front gate for a $5 surcharge through the summer.

Busch Gardens' corporate sibling, SeaWorld Orlando, also revived its 2012 Fun Card on Tuesday. It goes for $81.99, or $73.99 for kids.

Busch Gardens also unveiled the lineup for its winter concert series which includes Lynyrd Skynyrd, Brett Michaels, 38 Special, REO Speedwagon, Rita Coolidge, Herman's Hermits and the Grass Roots.
