Why did you decide to give a discount to the military?

We have worked with our state’s national guard for years and know the sacrifices they and their families make.

Why did you decide to give a discount to the military?

Those that sacrifice so much for our country deserve to be celebrated and honored. The brave men and woman currently serving, veterans and family members know time at home can be far and few between, so time together with loved ones or days off is precious and should be spent making valuable memories. With activities such as up close and personal educational animal exhibits, shows and live entertainment, exclusive behind the scenes tours, weekend activities and summer concert series, and thrilling rides and roller coasters, the parks have something for everyone. Visits to SeaWorld are unforgettable experiences.
Each SeaWorld park has its own deal programs for both active military and veterans and their families, but discounts vary between 30-50 percent off. Full priced tickets differ from park to park but start at $49.99. I have outlined the specifics below.. All parks extend the offers year round, but do require valid military ID and for quests to register on ID.me to qualify.
