For many years, Anheuser-Busch has generously offered free admission to its theme parks to military members and their immediate family members, and they have extended the offer through 2012. My family has enjoyed a free trip to Water Country USA several times and my children talk about it all the time. It certainly is a nice family memory!
The offer includes SeaWorld San Diego, Busch Gardens Tampa Bay, SeaWorld Orlando, Sesame Place, SeaWorld San Antonio and Busch Gardens Williamsburg. SeaWorld San Diego, Busch Gardens Tampa Bay and SeaWorld Orlando are open all year round. Sesame Place, SeaWorld San Antonio and Busch Gardens Williamsburg are seasonal operations with opening schedules that vary throughout the year. The offer is not available for Discovery Cove, Aquatica, or any of the special Christmas programs.
Each active duty, National Guardsman, or actively serving Reservist is entitled to free admission for themselves and up to three dependents. Dependents may take advantage of the offer without their sponsor but will require appropriate identification. In my family’s experience, the cashiers somehow wangled free admission for all six of us with just my husband as the sponsor.
