“Teacher Study Pass” includes unlimited admission for Texas certified teachers plus discounted Fun Cards for friends and family

SAN ANTONIO, TX (Jan. 18, 2012) – For the second year in a row, SeaWorld San Antonio is thanking teachers by offering a FREE Adult Fun Card to all active, employed and certified K-12 grade school instructors in the state of Texas. This Teacher Study Pass is a 2012 Fun Card that allows unlimited admission to SeaWorld San Antonio now through the end of the year.

For even more savings, until June 30, teachers can purchase up to six additional Fun Cards discounted at $5 off, in order to share the SeaWorld fun with family and friends.

Last year, 89,000 Texas teachers registered for the Teacher Study Pass evoucher. Getting their 2012 Fun Card is easy. Teachers simply visit seaworld.com/teachers and click on San Antonio to register for their Teacher Study Pass, as well as purchase discounted admission for friends and family.

“Sharing marine life knowledge with students is one of our core values,” said Dan Decker, SeaWorld San Antonio’s park president. “At SeaWorld San Antonio alone, more than 100,000 students pass through our camp and field trip programs every year. We know how important a strong educational foundation is for our youth and we want to thank teachers for their years of devotion and passion.”

This gift is intended to be an inspiration, too. Whether it’s visiting Penguin Encounter to prepare for a classroom session on environmental issues in the southern hemisphere or riding the Steel Eel, our hypercoaster, to help explain physics and gravity, the park’s experiences give teachers the unique opportunity to use their SeaWorld visit to help enhance their curriculum.
