Unlimited Fun at SeaWorld and Busch Gardens is Easy and Affordable With Innovative New 'EZ Pay'.
ST. LOUIS, Sept. 26 /PRNewswire/ --
For less than the cost of a pizza each month, a family can now get unlimited visits to three of Florida's most popular theme parks: SeaWorld in Orlando and Busch Gardens and Adventure Island in Tampa.
Busch Entertainment Corp., parent company of the three parks, introduced its exclusive new EZ Pay program today. With the EZ Pay option, consumers may buy one- or two-year Passports to any or all of the parks and pay for them monthly with no interest or service fees.
"With EZ Pay, we become the first theme parks to allow our pass members to 'pay as they play' for the next year or two," said Victor G. Abbey, chairman and president, Busch Entertainment Corp. "For about the cost of one movie a month, someone can enjoy unlimited admission to one of these parks, plus a variety of discounts and member benefits."
Abbey said the introduction of EZ Pay is the latest example of Busch Entertainment's leadership in guest service and value.
"We are fortunate to have so many loyal guests who want to enjoy SeaWorld and Busch Gardens again and again. Over the past two years, we have completely revamped our membership programs with these guests in mind, and now offer a wide range of Passports at various prices and benefit levels," Abbey said.
"Now, rather than asking guests to pay upfront for passes they may use for the next year or two, we can let them pay a small amount each month through EZ Pay," Abbey said.
The EZ Pay option is available on Silver Passports (good for one year) or Gold Passports (good for two years). These Passports are available for individual parks or combination of parks. Prices vary depending on the pass level and number of parks included. Both Silver and Gold Passports offer unlimited park admission and a range of discounts and benefits, such as free parking.
There is no additional fee or interest charge for the EZ Pay program; the cost of the Passports is simply divided into equal monthly installments for the length of the membership. Monthly payments are automatically charged to the pass member's credit card.
For example, a SeaWorld Silver Passport, good for one year's admission to the Orlando park, is just $6.67 a month for 12 months, or $79.95 total. The top-of-the-line Gold Passport for two years at all three parks (SeaWorld, Busch Gardens and Adventure Island) is only $8.96 a month for 24 months, or $214.95 if paid all at once. (Prices do not include tax.)
The EZ Pay program is not available with single-day admission tickets or other passes and tickets.
Consumers can get more information, purchase Passports and sign up for EZ Pay by calling toll-free (888) 800-5447 or visiting www.EZPayFun.com online.
Abbey said the company would look at extending the EZ Pay program to its other parks across the United States following its introduction in Florida.
The Anheuser-Busch Adventure Parks include SeaWorld Adventure Parks in Orlando, San Diego and San Antonio; Busch Gardens in Tampa Bay and Williamsburg, Va.; Discovery Cove in Orlando; Sesame Place near Philadelphia; Adventure Island in Tampa Bay; and Water Country USA in Williamsburg. Information on the parks is available online at www.seaworld.com and www.buschgardens.com .
