Busch Gardens Christmas Town 2016: Get the best deal of the season by buying early and online

It’s the best time of the season to lock in deals for Christmas Town 2016 at Busch Gardens Williamsburg. The park is now offering some of the lowest prices for this very popular holiday event. These low prices are available online only.

Busch Gardens has designed a new system for Christmas Town tickets. There will be daily ticket prices that start as low as $16. This price reflects a discount of more than 55% off the gate price of $38. Tickets are now on sale online.

From the press release …

“We want to give guests the flexibility to choose the date and the value that best fits their needs,” said Dan Dipiazzo, vice president of marketing at Busch Gardens. “But the key is to buy as early as possible. As the availability of tickets for a particular day decreases, the price will go up.”

As an example of the pricing structure … Weekend (Friday, Saturday and Sunday) online prices range from $20 to $27. Once the park starts weekday operation (Monday, December 12 through the end of the event), online prices are as low as $16 during the week. Saturday, December 31 is $17, and January 1-2 is $16.

These reduced prices are ONLY available online. Guests who purchase tickets at the park on the day of their visit will pay the full general admission price of $38. Daily ticket prices and availability can be found on the park’s website at Christmastown.com/va.
