The Generosity of Sea World

An appreciation for the Heroes program at the theme parks.

Recently my nephew graduated from boot camp from the Air Force in Texas. Therefore my wife and her sister went to see the graduation ceremony. While in San Antonio Texas, they all visited Sea World. They went to purchase tickets and all were let in for free because he was in uniform. (After boot camp and before training school it is a requirement to wear your uniform). Sea World said thanks for your service and dedication to our country.

Sea World has been a wildlife conservationist for many years and has giving abundance of monies to help all sorts of animals. But letting in 4 adults for free is awesome. Take the $59.99 per ticket * 4 adults and the $239.96 is a nice gift to support the Military and their families. What I think is amazing is that I have never seen any self-promotion by Sea World regarding this free entry for our uniformed personnel.

Thanks Sea World and keep up the good work.

Awesome story. Sea World is real good with that. Sea World San Antonio is wonderful and I hope you had a great time in there.

Manny, Universal hasn't done a free military ticket in many years. They don't even have walk up military discount, you have to get it in advance.
I think WDW has the same situation currently too, so SeaWorld and BG are the only parks currently offering that deal to my knowledge.

It's nice but it isn't really for the best reasons - they've got little to no attendance to speak of and people in the parks will end up spending money on food and drinks. It makes the parks seem more popular.

Thanks for your kind words, Brian & Manny. SeaWorld enjoys being able to extend these tickets to our active duty men and women. Our team members take great pride in the Here's to the Heroes program, not as a self-serving way to increase attendance, but as a gesture of honor and appreciation for their service and sacrifice to our country.
