Get ride wait times and fun quizzes with the new Busch Gardens Text Message Service

Busch Gardens Tampa Bay in Florida recently debuted an in-park text messaging campaign to ensure guests are making the most out of their visit to the beautiful theme park.  Similar to, but less extensive than, Disney’s Mobile Magic Campaign, the SMS text messages provide coaster wait times, family friendly scavenger hunts and quizzes, promotional offers for food and merchandise, and fun facts about the park! 

“The feedback from our guests has been incredible — they love this level of service and how it enhances their park experience,” said Jim Dean, executive vice president and general manager of Busch Gardens Tampa Bay.  “With text messaging, it’s very natural for our fans to get park updates during their visit.  On a moment’s notice, we can let them know about wait times on the coasters or even take them on a scavenger hunt.”

According to the blog released by Sea World Parks & Entertainment, guests can receive instructions on how to opt in to the service right at the front gate.  It’s as simple as texting a keyword to an SMS number.  Within minutes, you’ll will receive updates directly to your mobile device.  Conveniently, you’re automatically unsubscribed from the service after 12 hours and you can feel free to opt-out at any time.

“My favorite is the quiz we have for Sesame Street Safari of Fun, our new attraction,” said Dean.  “Parents and kids are having a great time with it. We text trivia questions about Safari of Fun, things to notice and spot.  Parents and kids need to keep their eyes open – they never know what we’ll ask!”
