Anheuser-Busch Salute to Heroes Free Theme Park Admission.


For the third time since the first Persian Gulf War, Anheuser-Busch is offering free theme park admission to members of the U.S. Armed Forces and their families through a program called "Heroes Salute”.


 The program is offered at Busch Gardens theme parks in Williamsburg, Va., and Tampa Bay, Fla., and at Sea World in Orlando, Fla., San Antonio, TX, and San Diego, CA.  The program began in February and will run through the end of December 2005.


The program is open to active duty, reserve, and National Guard service members and their families.  To gain free admission under the program, service members need only register either by visiting the Hero Salute website at: and filling out applicable registration information, or by submitting the information in the entrance plaza of participating parks and showing a Department of Defense photo ID card. Up to three direct dependents of military members also are entitled to free admission.  Dependents may take advantage of the offer without their service member sponsor; however, an adult must accompany minor dependents.

Busch Gardens Williamsburg and SeaWorld San Antonio are open March through October.  Sesame Place is open May through October.  SeaWorld San Antonio is open March through November.  All other parks are open year-round (SeaWorld Orlando, Busch Gardens Tampa Bay, and SeaWorld San Diego).
