Free Beer Here! (and at SeaWorld Orlando this Summer)

Capone’s has always offered free beer for their guests, however, this summer SeaWorld Orlando will also be giving away a brew or two! The summer promotion begins May 25 and continues through September 2. This longtime tradition at SeaWorld is returning again. We say cheers!

History of Free Beer at SeaWorld

Busch Gardens in Tampa offered free beer years before SeaWorld did. They were, after all, both owned by Anheuser-Busch, maker of Budweiser. It only made sense to offer a taste of their product at the theme park. It wasn’t much, but park visitors enjoyed the sample.

Around 1992, their sister park, SeaWorld Orlando started offering cups of beer. It was a nice touch, especially on a hot day. Even the Budweiser Clydesdales paraded through the Orlando theme park twice a day. Then in 2009, a ‘last call’ was announced. The cold draft stopped flowing (for free). Little did we know at the time, Anheuser-Busch was selling SeaWorld Orlando’s parent company to the Blackstone Group.

How to Get Your Free Beer

SeaWorld Pass Members can enjoy a free 14-ounce domestic brew now. They do not have to wait for May 25, 2019. The complimentary beer is available to guests 21 years of age and older from 10:30 a.m. to one hour before the park closes. To get your free beer, visit the Patio Bar next to Mama’s Pretzel Kitchen. You will be asked to show a valid Pass and photo ID to redeem. Once summer begins, all adults will have access to their free beer.

As was mentioned at the beginning of this post, Capone’s Dinner & Show also offers free beer. The wise guys and doll faces have been serving it since 1992! Prohibition or not, suds are served each evening at this joint. Beer, wine and other adult beverages are included in your ticket. Unlike SeaWorld, you don’t have to stop at having only one free drink. However, you are asked to drink responsibly. You will need to show a photo ID as proof of age.

Speaking of age, Capone’s also offers ‘virgin drinks’ or ‘mocktails’ and many other beverages. This is great for the kids in your group (and teetotalers).

Other Free Stuff

Join the millions of visitors (21 million annually, to be exact) to visit SeaWorld this summer. Take advantage of the free beer. Of course, there are many other, more important, features about this Orlando theme park. New attractions have opened, including the recent opening of Sesame Street land! Also, on select nights this summer, Electric Ocean is sure to be spectacular.

If you like free beverages, you might also like free attractions. Check out our post about the free fun things to do in this area. Skip the busy theme parks for a day and give your wallet a break.

After a day at the theme park or free attraction, join the gang at Capone’s and ‘tip a few’ with Al’s pals. Enjoy the cabaret show and delicious buffet. It’s a blast that everyone in your group will enjoy. See you soon… and cheers!

Legoland Florida’s Water Park Opens Saturday

The much anticipated opening of Legoland Florida’s water park is just a few days away. It will open to the public Saturday, May 26, 2012. Just in time for the big Memorial Day weekend. But did you know you can have a chance to preview it on Thursday for free? And help set a world record?

Admission to this new Central Florida water park is not included in regular admission. Guests will need to pay an extra $12 ($3 for children under 3 years) to include the water park option. If you have a premium-level annual pass ($179 for adults and $149 for child/senior), you will have seasonal access to the new water park. So how do you get in free this Thursday?

Guests must be at Legoland Florida’s main entrance at 9 a.m. Thursday. The first 400 guests will receive free admission plus a free T-shirt and most importantly – a beach ball. The Guinness World Record for “most beach balls in the air at one time” is currently at 400. Breaking the record should prove to be no problem. After the beach ball toss, guests will be allowed to stay in the water park (and the entire theme park) for the rest of the day!

This new Central Florida water park attraction includes:

  • Lego Wave Pool – Catch a gentle wave or simply cool off where the waves are just big enough for all ages to enjoy.
  • Build-A-Raft River – Families can imagine, design and build a unique Lego vessel and set afloat on a voyage around the 1000-foot-long lazy river, set amongst playful Lego Friends, flowering vegetation and palm trees.
  • Twin Chasers – Friends ride tubes 375 feet down an intertwining pair of enclosed water slides before plunging into a pool below.
  • Splash Out – The thrill seekers of the family can ascend to the tallest point of the water park attraction and choose from one of three unique slides, then speed down a 60-foot drop.
  • Joker Soaker – A fun, interactive playground with various lengths, heights and types of slides that offer something different for every member of the family. Guests can wade in the surrounding pool and be surprised with a torrential spill from a 300-gallon bucket.
  • Duplo Splash Safari – Toddlers rule at this water play area with shorter slides and interactive, larger-than-life creatures.
