SeaWorld Parks Offer Free Admission to First Responders

Both Busch Gardens Tampa and SeaWorld Orlando are honoring Florida first responders through September. Between September 1-30, first responders will receive free admission to both Florida parks, and a special offer for additional tickets. In addition to complimentary admission, qualified first responders wil be able to receive up to four discounted tickets per park for friends and family for just $50 per ticket, resulting in savings of 48 percent off general admission.

“Our hope is that these courageous people and their families will visit our parks, share time with one another and create memories that last a lifetime,” said Donnie Mills, SeaWorld Orlando park president.

  1. Be Advised:
    You have to jump through hoops to get this deal. I am a retired FF with 25 years in the fire service and they would not take my 25 year certificate as proof of being a FF. Then they want you to sign up for some kind of credits on the I.D. website. Good Luck

  2. Thank you very much for the comment, Jim. We are sorry to hear that you encountered some difficulties to take advantage of this deal (thank you for serving the community for such a long time, by the way!). We are interested in hearing if anybody else is having (or has had) similar experiences.
