Veterans now have until Sept. 30 to register for free admission to the park
SeaWorld San Diego is extending its free admission program to military veterans through Sept. 30, 2018. This complimentary admission’s offer was scheduled to run between May 25 and July 4, 2018, however, due to its popularity, the park is extending the veteran’s program for an additional three months.
Under the Waves of Honor program, this offer provides complimentary admission to military veterans and up to three additional guests. Tickets must be obtained by Sept. 30 and can be redeemed for park admission through Dec. 31, 2018. This offer is available online only.
“I’m thrilled to be extending this free ticket offer to our military veterans,” said Marilyn Hannes, SeaWorld San Diego’s park president. “My son is a U.S. Army veteran who served combat tours in Iraq and Afghanistan. As a military mom, I have the greatest appreciation for the sacrifices our veterans have made to protect our freedom.”
Veterans must register online at www.WavesofHonor.com in advance, and verify their proof of service through the ID.me qualification process. SeaWorld works with ID.me to provide an online verification of former military personnel in a secure and privacy-enhancing manner. Once veterans and their guests have registered online, they can bring their e-tickets directly to the park’s entrance turnstiles.
SeaWorld has also paid tribute to active duty service members through a complimentary ticket program for the military since 2003 with more than two and half million members of the U.S. and allied armed forces and their immediate family members having visited the park for free. SeaWorld has also offered a number of complimentary and discounted admission programs to veterans in the last 15 years, as well as complimentary offers to teachers and emergency first responders. These admission offers have been very well received.
