Grafton, Ill., June 16, 2011 ... As St. Louis gears up to pay tribute to area marines during Marine Week, which runs from June 20 - June 26, we are reminded of the daily sacrifices made by all of our military men and women. And, to show its support for the unwavering efforts of our local heroes, Raging Rivers WaterPark is once again offering active military personnel and their families discounted admission prices. An active military identification card will give each member of the serviceperson's immediate family the chance to spend a full day of fun at the water park for only $11 plus tax per person throughout the 2011 season.

We hope these everyday heroes can escape to the park for the day and enjoy quality time with their families."
