Guests looking to enjoy a cold one this summer can find it here:

  • Busch Gardens Tampa: At Orang Café, all guests can receive one free beer* per visit, and pass holders can receive two free beers per visit from 11:00 a.m. to park close, local time. Offer available now and for a limited time.

  • Busch Gardens Williamsburg: Willkommenhaus will offer one free beer** per visit for members and annual pass holders and a $0.50 beer for all guests. Offer begins June 10.


"From heart pounding new and guest-favorite rides to awesome new shows and musical acts, Busch Gardens is the hottest place to be this summer, and a free cold one – or two – is the perfect way to take some time to relax and refresh," said Marc Swanson, CEO of United Parks & Resorts.

Both Busch Gardens parks are igniting the spark for summertime family fun, including the return of Summer Nights at Busch Gardens Tampa Bay and the debut of the all-new Summer of Wonder featuring art, music, culinary delights and world-class fun at Busch Gardens Williamsburg. Plus, visitors at the Tampa park can beat the heat with the premier of the park's all-new ice show, Rhythm of Nature, in the Moroccan Palace Theater and celebrate the nostalgia of summer during the all-new Red, White & Brews event.

In addition to new events and entertainment throughout the parks, there are heart pounding new thrills. At Busch Gardens Williamsburg, guests are invited to feel the roar of the all-new Loch Ness Monster. In addition to 900 feet of "Nessie's" signature steel track, riders will encounter new sights, sounds and surprises during their journey through the Scottish terrain. At Busch Gardens Tampa, there's nothing more exhilarating than a ride on the wings of the phoenix. Coming this summer, experience a fiery blaze of immersive, family-friendly excitement as you soar above the Serengeti Plain and drop into fun-filled twists and turns on the NEW Phoenix Rising. Inspired by legend, this suspended roller coaster in vibrant Pantopia is packed with surprises and speeds up to 44 miles per hour. But with a height requirement of just 42", it's the perfect adventure for families to embark on together.
