TAMPA BAY, Fla. — 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.

Qualifying first responders include: Florida fire rescue first responders, Florida emergency medical services employees (EMT/EMS), 911 dispatchers, police and sheriff officers; Florida Highway Patrol; Florida Department of Corrections; Florida Department of Law Enforcement; Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission field officers; Florida Forest Service Forest Rangers; Florida Park Service law enforcement; Department of Homeland Security law enforcement agents; and Florida Department of Environmental Protection law enforcement. 

However, parking ($20), taxes and service fees are not included. 

For everyone else, the regular price for a single-park ticket is $90.
