SEAWORLD SAN DIEGO ADMISSION OFFER FOR U.S. MILITARY VETERANS EXTENDED THROUGH END OF YEAR
Military veterans and up to three guests invited to enjoy complimentary admission during tribute program
SAN DIEGO (Sept. 6, 2016) — SeaWorld® San Diego’s offer for complimentary admission to military veterans and up to three additional guests has been extended through the end of the year.
The Waves of Honor ticket offer is one way that SeaWorld can honor the men and women who have previously served as members of the U.S. armed services.
“We greatly appreciate the service and sacrifice of our military veterans and retirees, and have recognized them, along with our active duty military members, prior to the start of our killer whale show every day for the past several years,” said Marilyn Hannes, SeaWorld’s park president. “This year, we are again expressing our appreciation further by offering veterans free admission, and we’re delighted to be able to extend the timeframe of the offer through the end of the year. Our hope is they will share an enjoyable visit to the park with families and friends.”
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.
“I think Waves of Honor is a great idea,” said retired Marine Corps Sgt. Maj. Jay Lott. “I went online to prove that I was a veteran and got my tickets. It was real easy.”
Tickets must be obtained and redeemed for park admission by Dec. 31, 2016. This offer is available online only.
SeaWorld has paid tribute to active duty service members through a complimentary ticket programs for the military since 2003 with more than two million members of the U.S. and allied armed forces and their families having visited the park for free. SeaWorld has also offered a number of complimentary and discounted admission programs to veterans in the last 12 years, as well as complimentary offers to teachers and emergency first responders. These admission offers have been very well received.
