Busch Gardens offers free admission to first responders


First responders in Florida can now get in free to Busch Gardens if they go through Nov. 24.

The Tampa theme park is offering free admission to police officers, forest rangers and more as a way to thank them for their service and dedication.

In addition to the free ticket, each first responder will get four more for family or friends that are 50 percent off the regular price.
