Busch Entertainment Corp. is again offering free admission to most of its parks for members of the military and their families.
The amusement park subsidiary of Anheuser-Busch InBev announced it was renewing its program that is being sponsored by Budweiser.
The program provides admission to SeaWorld and Busch Gardens parks, Sesame Place in Langhome, Pa., Adventure Island in Tampa and Water Country USA in Williamsburg, Va. The program does not include Discovery Cove in Orlando and SeaWorld’s new Orlando water park, Aquatica.
Active members of the 3.2 million member United States and coalition armed forces and as many as three direct dependents of each are eligible.
Budweiser’s Here’s to the Heroes was launched in February 2005 to acknowledge the service of military men and women and the sacrifices made by their families, a release said.
Here’s to the Heroes is the fourth tribute to military personnel offered by the company since Yellow Ribbon Summer welcomed service members home from the Gulf War in 1991.
Three of Busch Entertainment Corp.’s parks — SeaWorld Orlando, Busch Gardens Tampa and SeaWorld San Diego — operate year round. The company’s remaining parks are seasonal with varying opening dates.
Orlando-based Busch Entertainment operates nine theme parks across the country, hosting more than 25 million guests per year.
