Busch Gardens Williamsburg Annual Pass Blackout Dates
Basic annual pass holders/members, as mentioned above, do have blackout dates – usually around major holidays, such as on and around Independence Day, the week of Christmas, a few dates in October, etc. Once again, there is a calendar ta the official site to look over that marks the blackout dates.
As for what you can do when you get there, it IS a Busch Gardens Park, so you can expect there to be rides, fun attractions, and most importantly – rare animals. The Tampa park has an African Safari theme. In contrast, the Williamsburg park has animals from the Scottish Highlands and North America, from Clydesdale horses to gray wolves and bald eagles. It goes with the overall theme of the Williamsburg area, which symbolizes the early Colonial era.
Some reptiles live at Busch Gardens Williamsburg, including a king snake and ball python. Sadly, these are often misunderstood creatures when they are essential to an overall healthy ecosystem. If you want to see some bright and colorful birds, go exploring Lorikeet Glen.
Whatever kind of animals you are interested in, use your Busch Gardens Williamsburg annual pass to visit often and learn more about them. This visit can be a fun and educational experience for everyone in the family.
