Stay & Play Park Admission Add-On

When your Zoo School adventure comes to an end, add even more fun by letting loose and enjoying the whole park!

It is Busch Gardens®, after all!  At the conclusion of your Zoo School program, why not end the educational portion with a chance to ride roller coasters and see world class shows!  Zoo School attendees can add on discounted park tickets for a same-day adventure.
At the end of the Zoo School program, participants can purchase discounted tickets to stay and play in the park. This is a self-guided adventure, and only valid same-day from 2:00 pm.- park closing. Your educators will escort you out of the park following the conclusion of your Zoo School program, so that you may re-enter with your Stay and Play park admission tickets, and enjoy all of the fun that Busch Gardens® has to offer.
