I'm considering driving down for the Thrill Fest event tonight, and I'm also considering an annual pass to SeaWorld Orlando and Busch Gardens Tampa. Have they ever offered discounts on annual passes throughout the year, or is the $220 the best you can get?
I want to go to each park at least once a year, so it ends up being the same cost to do both parks once plus parking than it does to get an annual pass.
If you can wait a few months and can make the deal work for you the past couple of years they have had huge sales on "Blue" (Black) Friday. A few years back when I bought one it was BOGO annual passes and last year it was maybe buy 1 get one half off or something. Might not be the most practical discount if you're buying one for yourself only but if someone goes in on it with you might be a pretty decent savings.
EDIT: here's a link to the Orlando Sentinel article about last years sale, there were BOGO single day tickets as well, which I'm guessing could have been used at both SWO and BGT. And the AP's were buy one get one half off but in years past they were buy one get one free so no telling what this year's promotion will be.www.orlandosentinel.com/travel/attractions/theme-park-rangers-blog/os-bz-seaworld-blue-friday-bogo-tickets-20171102-story.html#
