What types of Pins are available?
CORE: Core pins feature Busch Gardens animals, countries and iconic attractions and are available to purchase until they are retired.
Collection pins are an assortment of pins that all relate to each other. A collection may be added to year after year.
A series is a set of pins that are identified as a group. Make sure to collect the whole series.
Limited edition pins are available in smaller quantities for a specific time or until they sell out. Get limited edition pins right away, they’ll be hard to find later on.
Special edition pins are available only for a limited time and feature many Busch Gardens icons (current and retired). These pins will go fast, so get them while they’re hot.
Once a pin is retired, it will no longer be produced. These are identified with a retirement label. These are the ones the collectors want…so keep your eye out for them.
