Grafton, Ill., June 25, 2012 … As the St. Louis region gets ready to celebrate Independence Day, Raging Rivers is showing its appreciation for the many military men and women who work so hard to protect and serve our country. From July 1st – 6th, Raging Rivers WaterPark will offer FREE admission to active duty military personnel as part of the park’s Military Days program. To gain free admission, each serviceperson must present an active duty military card. In addition, veterans and each member of the serviceperson’s immediate family will be admitted to the park at a discounted rate of just $12 plus tax.

“While we offer active duty military and their families a discounted rate all season long, we wanted to use the week of July 4th to further show our appreciation to our neighbors, friends and family members who sacrifice so much to keep us safe,” said Donna Smith, president and general manager of Raging Rivers WaterPark. “By offering free admission to our active duty military members, it is our hope that these everyday heroes can escape to the park during the holiday week and enjoy quality time with their families.”
