Discounts for active, retired military members at The Wheel, restaurants, museums and more
ORLANDO, Fla. (May 20, 2022) – In honor of those who have made the ultimate sacrifice, businesses across ICON Park are celebrating the men and women who keep our country safe. This Memorial Day weekend, a variety of specials are available to active and retired military members, along with fun for the whole family.
The Wheel at ICON Park
There’s no better view of the City Beautiful then from 400 feet above the skyline on ICON Park’s signature attraction, The Wheel. From May 27 to 30, ICON Park is offering a free ticket to The Wheel for all active and retired military personnel and a 50 percent discount for their accompanying family members.
The Wheel will be shining red, white and blue throughout Memorial Day weekend.
Museum of Illusions Orlando
Museum of Illusions Orlando isn’t your average museum. You won’t find “do not touch” signs, get shushed by curators or have to follow around tour guides – Instead, it encourages guests to get a hands-on experience and explore all the wonders of the mind throughout more than 50 engaging exhibits.
On May 30, active military members and veterans will be able to experience the museum for a discounted admission fee of $21.99. The first 100 military members who visit on Memorial Day will also receive a special gift.
Madame Tussauds Orlando
STRUT WITH THE STARS! Come one, come all to the marvelous Madame Tussauds Orlando featuring the Justice League heroes! Dazzle your friends with the ultimate selfie. Are you ready to strike a pose with Taylor Swift, swing punches with Ali, and save the world with your favorite superheroes?
Madame Tussauds Orlando offers a 10 percent military discount all year long.
SEA LIFE Orlando Aquarium
SEA LIFE Orlando Aquarium introduces guests to a wide range of sea creatures and encourages excitement and curiosity about marine phenomena in the natural world. From feeling the spiny skin of a Sea Star to gazing at sharks swimming overhead, guests can explore over 20 marine exhibits, view 2,000 sea creatures and learn about 250 species in an immersive setting.
The aquarium offers a 10 percent military discount all year long.
Blake Shelton’s Ole Red is more than a venue and more than a restaurant – It’s the full country experience! This place is for music-lovers, food-lovers, drink-lovers and a helluva-lot-of-fun-lovers. Guests can enjoy 100-proof live music, scratch-made dishes and signature drinks… all inspired by the boss man himself.
To thank active military and veterans for their service, Ole Red offers them a 10 percent discount year-round. This discount excludes alcohol.

If you’re starting the holiday off early, the workshop offers different special gifts and deals on the 25th of every month to celebrate Build-A-Bear Workshop’s 25-year anniversary. For children one to 14 years old who have a birthday over the long weekend, they can unlock the “Count Your Candles” promotion and get the Birthday Bear for the cost of their age. Child must be present and enrollment into the Build-A-Bear rewards program is required.
