The go-to theme park is returning to its roots by offering guests free, complimentary beer during their visit. Busch Gardens also has a new rewards program and ride launching this year.

There’s something new at Busch Gardens in Tampa, and it’s free beer. Yep, you read that right.


The theme park stopped its tradition of serving free beer in 2009, but for 2019, it’s back to regularly scheduled programming. To celebrate its 60th anniversary, guests 21 and older can grab up to two complimentary beers at the park’s Garden Gate Cafe and Serengeti Overlook Pub.


Also new this year is the tallest launch coaster in the state. Tigris will be ready for riders in the spring. Be one of the first to try it out with Busch Garden’s new four-tire pass program. Prices, perks and freebies vary with a Bronze, Silver, Gold or Platinum pass.
