As Independence Day approaches, Raging Rivers WaterPark is once again honoring the men and women who work hard to protect and serve our country by offering them FREE admission in the days surrounding the holiday. From Monday, July 1 through Saturday, July 6, Raging Rivers is hosting its annual Military Days week, in which active military personnel presenting a valid active military identification card will receive free admission. Their card will also grant immediate family members a reduced admission fee of $12 plus tax per person.

 “Raging Rivers is proud to show our appreciation to our many neighbors, friends and family members who sacrifice so much to keep us safe,” said Donna Smith, general manager of Raging Rivers WaterPark. “While we offer a discounted rate to active duty military and their families all season long, we wanted to further show our support as we embark on Independence Day. It is our hope that these everyday heroes can escape to Raging Rivers during the holiday week and enjoy quality time with their families.”
