ORLANDO, Fla.(WTXL) — SeaWorld is offering free admission to Florida certified teachers for the next year, according to the theme park's website.
"In recognition of the importance SeaWorld places on education and the critical role educators play in shaping the knowledge, understanding, and appreciation of the next generation of global citizens, SeaWorld will offer free admission for Florida certified K-12 classroom teachers to amplify their educational efforts both in and out of the classroom, the theme park said in a press release.
Teachers can pre-register online using the ID.me process to receive the SeaWorld Florida Teacher Card eVoucher.
The Teacher Card provides Florida teachers with unlimited admission to SeaWorld Orlando through Aug. 31, 2021.
To take advantage of the offer, teachers need to select the Teacher ID button in the top-right, select “Sign up” and then enter an e-mail address (personal e-mail address recommended) and a password. ID.me requires a Department of Education (DOE) number to audit eligibility for the program.
Eligible private school teachers can also provide a letter from the principal on school letterhead confirming employment as a K-12 teacher along with a Florida photo ID and most recent (30 days) paystub to SeaWorld front gate entrance.
The park said it has worked with state and local health officials, outside consultants and attraction industry leaders to enhance its already strict health, safety and cleanliness standards.
SeaWorld Orlando reopened to guests in early June after closing in March due to the pandemic.
