If you’re a veteran or an active-duty member of the military, here’s a way to save money on a quick summer trip.
Veterans can get a free single-day ticket AND free tickets for three dependents to Busch Gardens or SeaWorld. (Yes, you’ll all need to visit at the same time.) Registration is required by May 15. You must use your tickets by July 10, 2022.
And if you’re active-duty military? You’re entitled to one free admission every year to Busch Gardens, SeaWorld or Sesame Place for yourself and three dependents. To get this year’s ticket, you’ll just need to register online to reserve and print your ticket. Tickets expire Dec. 31, 2022. Some blackout dates will apply.
How to Get Free Tickets to Busch Gardens or SeaWorld
Visit the Waves of Honor website to reserve your tickets. You’ll need an ID.me account to verify your military or veteran status. From there, just select the date and book your tickets. You can also take advantage of other discounts for military members and veterans, such as 50% off up to six single-day tickets.
Make sure you bring your military or veteran’s ID with you to the gate. Then go enjoy a well-deserved day of fun with your family.
Looking for additional ways to save money? Here’s a list of more than 100 companies that offer discounts for military members and veterans.
