We had such a great time on this trip to Tampa/Clearwater! Purchasing the City Pass was well worth it. We were able to go to Busch Gardens in Tampa which was a really nice park. The park was clean and the rides were fun and the lines weren’t bad at all. We also used the pass in Clearwater on a dolphin excursion cruise. Everyone had a great time! Get the City Pass it’s worth it!

I traveled with my school aged daughter and booked the Tampa City Pass. In 4 days we got to experience 4 of the attractions included, and it was so worth it! Scanning the pass at each attraction/park was super easy and convenient on my phone.

How to Use Child Swap

Like many other major theme parks, Busch Gardens offers Child Swap for parents who are with a child too small to ride an attraction. This allows one adult to ride alone or with an older child, while the other adult waits with the small child; then they swap so the waiting adult can ride, relieving both adults from having to wait in line.
