Here's to Our Heroes

Soldier and Daughter

Memorial Day is thought to be the holiday that kicks off summer, although that season does not officially start until June 20. However, Memorial Day's true meaning lies in commemorating the U.S. military men and women who gave their lives protecting our country. The SeaWorld Parks & Entertainment family are proud to salute the men and women of our armed forces and their families.

Established in 2005, Here's to the Heroes grants any active duty, activated or drilling reservist, or National Guardsman and up to three direct dependants free admission to one of our parks. Through this initiative our family of parks has welcomed 3.2 million military service men and women and their families acknowledging their service to our country. We are proud to serve, those that served. For more information on the Here's to the Heroes program visit
