Military veterans can take 50 percent off up to six single-day admission tickets to Busch Gardens, a savings of almost $50 per ticket through the end of May.

The offer can be used by active, retired and honorably discharged officers and enlisted personnel.

"This special offer is a small way of saying thank you to those who serve and have served our country," Jim Dean, Busch Gardens Tampa Bay park president, said in a news release. "It is an honor to be able to host members of the military and their families in our park and this offer is a small token of our appreciation."

Eligible veterans should visit buschgardenstampa.com to register, using the ID.me verification system. Tickets must be purchased and used by May 31. Regular single-day admission for Busch Gardens is $99, $79 for ages 3-9.
