"Across Volusia County and the entire country, first responders work tirelessly to keep our communities safe," Tyler Currie, General Manager of Daytona Lagoon, said in a statement. "We want to give them a chance to relax and enjoy a fun day with family and friends. It’s just one small way we can thank all of our local first responders."

Also, starting on Sept. 10, Daytona Lagoon will kick off the first weekend of its Waterpark Bonus Weekends series, in which guests can pay a discounted price of $23.99 each to enter the waterpark on Saturdays and Sundays. That offer runs through Oct. 9.
