SeaWorld holds the men and women who serve and have served in the U.S. armed forces in the highest regard. For their service and sacrifice, SeaWorld is honoring active duty and veterans with a special Red, White and Blue Salute, taking place Nov. 5–9 and Nov. 11–12. Festivities will include a Hero’s Trail, Hero’s Salute prelude to Orca Encounter presentations and a special frozen drink with a portion of the proceeds being donated to Operation Ride Home, a program that provides financial assistance to eligible active duty junior-enlisted military to travel home for the holidays.
Hero’s Trail: All guests are invited to pick up a free Heroes Trail Sticker Map at one of several booths located throughout the park. After exploring all the Heroes Trail booths and collecting up to nine Armed Forces (and other hero) stickers, they can bring the completed map to the SeaWorld Store to collect a special prize (only on select dates: Nov. 7, 8 and 11)
Hero’s Salute: Before each Orca Encounter presentation begins, SeaWorld will honor veterans and active duty military guests with a special salute.
Operation Ride Home: SeaWorld will donate $1 from every in-park purchase of a Frozen Jack & Coke beverage to Operation Ride Home, a program that provides financial assistance to eligible active duty junior-enlisted military to travel home for the holidays.
