Busch Gardens Offers FREE Admission to Active Duty Military and Veterans

Starting today through June 27, Busch Gardens is offering free admission for U.S. military veterans and their families to its Busch Gardens Tampa Bay and Busch Gardens Williamsburg theme parks. Since its launch in 2005, more than 10 million guests – active-duty military members, veterans, and their families – have enjoyed the company’s parks for free through the Waves of Honor program. Park Ambassadors are honored to welcome America’s heroes to enjoy thrilling attractions and amazing animal exhibits with detailed health and safety measures in place, including limited capacity, physical distancing, enhanced cleaning and sanitization, temperature checks, and face covering requirements.

U.S. military veterans and retirees must register their complimentary single-day ticket(s) for themselves and up to three dependents online at www.WavesofHonor.com before May 16. After registering, all tickets must be redeemed by June 27.

As an added thank you, veterans and active military service members can also purchase up to six additional tickets at 50% off. Service members and their direct dependents must have a valid active military ID to participate. This offer is part of SeaWorld Parks &Entertainment’s longstanding Waves of Honor program, which salutes active-duty military members, veterans, and their families by offering special pricing and promotions throughout the year.

“Following a challenging year, it’s a true privilege to honor the brave men and women who serve and sacrifice so much for our country,” said Marc Swanson, interim chief executive officer of SeaWorld Parks & Entertainment. “We are honored to continue this longstanding tradition as a small gesture of the deep gratitude we owe all those who serve and offer their families the chance to make unforgettable memories.”

Waves of Honor additionally provides any U.S. active-duty military, activated or drilling reservist, or National Guardsman one complimentary admission for themselves and up to three dependents per year to Busch Gardens. Additional discounts and offers are available for active military and veterans through MWR and ITT offices on U.S. military bases and online at www.WavesofHonor.com. These offers are available year-round and may differ by park
