Active Military Receive One Free Admission Plus Family Member Discounts
WINTER HAVEN, FLA. (April 2, 2013) – LEGOLAND® Florida salutes the men and women serving in the United States Armed Forces with Military Appreciation Days now throughout 2013. As an appreciation for their continued service, all active duty military personnel including the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, Coast Guard, National Guard and Reservists are now entitled to a free one-time single day admission to LEGOLAND Florida throughout 2013 and seasonally at the LEGOLAND Water Park. Specifically geared for families with children ages 2 to 12, LEGOLAND Florida also offers substantial savings for family and friends of military personnel so all can enjoy the more than 50 rides, shows and attractions.
Active duty military personnel should present their military ID to LEGOLAND Florida’s ticket window the day they plan to visit to redeem their free admission ticket. Family and friends of military personnel receive substantial discounts on admission tickets and should make purchases in advance through participating military base ticket offices.
“It is an honor to launch Military Appreciation Days and provide opportunities for our military men and women to create memorable family experiences as a small way to say thank you for their selfless service,” said Todd Andrus, Sales Manager at LEGOLAND Florida.
