The first major holiday of the “Coaster Season” is here, However, before we move forward, let’s take a moment to appreciate why we take an extra day off of work. Surely, it is not to grill a few more burgers or ride a few more roller coasters. Those freedoms in the United States of America have essentially been paid for by the brave men and women of the military. While each of them have sacrificed a great deal to keep our country free and safe, some have paid the ultimate price. Thanks to these sacrifices, the citizens of the United States can enjoy so many luxuries in life, many of which we all take for granted.
The Parks Pay Tribute
While many of us will be out at our favorite amusement parks on Sunday and Monday, many of the parks are taking the time out to pay extra tribute to those who serve or have served in the military. While most of those parks have some sort of military discount for a single-day ticket, some parks are actually giving military members and veterans free admission to the park. Regional park giant, Cedar Fair, for example, is offering military members free admission and is also offering their family members a slight discount on admission tickets at their parks.
Have a Safe Memorial Day Weekend
Nevertheless, we want everybody to have a Happy and SAFE Memorial Day weekend. We also encourage you to take a moment out the weekend and remember why we celebrate this holiday weekend – it goes WAY beyond the burgers!
