SeaWorld Orlando will be offering guests (age 21 and over) free beer beginning Friday, May 18 until the end of summer season, September 2, 2018.
As part of the promotion, visitors age 21 and older can go to Mama’s Pretzel Kitchen Patio to receive up to two complimentary 7-ounce beers per visit. The park will start handing out the brews at 10:30 a.m. and continue to do so until one hour before the park closes.
“The park will rotate beer offerings throughout the summer starting off with SeaWorld’s very own Mako Red Ale. Bud Light, Coors Light, Miller Light, Yuengling and more will also be featured throughout the summer,” a press release said Wednesday.
Busch Gardens Tampa Bay, which is owned by the same parent company as SeaWorld Orlando, is offering the same deal. Last month, the company announced it was bringing free beer back to Busch Gardens Tampa.
Busch Gardens and SeaWorld are sister parks once owned by Anheuser-Busch, makers of Budweiser and other brews. Free beer samples the two parks offered for years went away after they were sold in 2009.
I imagine the free beer promotion is being brought back in order to help with declining ticket sales. Will it help?
