SeaWorld® San Antonio Thanks Texas Teachers with a "Teacher Study Pass"

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

SAN ANTONIO, TX (Jan. 21, 2014) – For the fourth year in a row, SeaWorld® San Antonio is offering a FREE Adult Fun Card to all active, employed and certified K-12 grade school instructors in the state of Texas. In all, the program is available to approximately 330,000 Texas school teachers.

The Teacher Study Pass is a 2014 Fun Card that allows unlimited admission to SeaWorld San Antonio now through the end of the year. Teachers can pre-register for a 2014 Adult Fun Card at until May 31. For even more savings, until August 1, teachers can purchase up to six additional Fun Cards discounted at $5 off, in order to share the SeaWorld fun with family and friends.

“As an education based theme park, SeaWorld recognizes the importance of teachers in the classroom and the knowledge they pass on to our children,” 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.
