Busch Gardens Day

October 6, 2017, 10:00 AM - 10:00 PM

William & Mary Busch Gardens Day is sponsored by the Student Assembly & Student Affairs.  Once a year, the Student Assembly subsidizes park tickets to provide a significant discount to W&M students (typical cost for one-day admission is $75).  The entire park is open during normal operating hours and transforms to Howl-O-Scream at 6 PM.

Ticket Sales

Ticket sales will begin on Thursday, September 28 and end at 5:00 PM on October 6.  Tickets may be purchased at the Sadler Center Information Desk weekdays from 9:00 AM - 5:00 PM.

Only cash, checks, and W&M Express are accepted.  Season ticket holders may enter with their current season ticket.


Students may purchase tickets for $30 with a valid Tribe Card, and may purchase up to four tickets.  In order to receive the $30 rate for all tickets (for example, when purchasing for other W&M students), students must present four student Tribe Cards.  Otherwise, additional tickets will cost $37.

Faculty and staff may purchase tickets for $37 with a valid Tribe Card, and may purchase up to four tickets with one Tribe Card.


Complimentary buses will run from the W&M Hall parking lot starting at 2:00 PM.  The final bus will depart Busch Gardens at 10:30 PM.  There will be two busses running continuously between W&M Hall and Busch Gardens; they are not on a set schedule. Additionally, the WATA grey line provides service from the Williamsburg Transportation Center to Busch Gardens and is free for W&M students with their Tribe Card.  Parking passes can be purchased with your ticket at the Information Desk for $12.  Limited parking passes are available at that price.
