Have Fun on a Budget with These Atlanta Aquarium Deals
Want to see the fish and the rest of the city too? Use these tips to stretch your money while visiting the Atlanta aquarium.
The Georgia Aquarium in Atlanta is probably the best place on the East Coast to see your favorite fish. Better still, it is in the same city as the World of Coca Cola, Zoo Atlanta, and the CNN Center. To see everything there is to see at the aquarium and still be able to afford all of the other great attractions, take advantage of these great deals. While the caveat for most of the deals listed here is that they end with the new year, they are well worth using.
Go in the afternoon for a discounted price
Excited by the prospect of sharks and clown fish but don't think you can spend all day looking at underwater animals? Then the Imagination Nights discount happening through the end of the year is for you.
For a cheaper price, you can gain admission after 4pm and still enjoy all of the exhibits an all-day pass would get you. Depending on the day you visit and which add-ons you choose, you can go under the sea for $25 or less. On the weekends you get to see the AT&T Dolphin Tales Show, and on the weekdays you get to look behind the scenes; you can't go wrong either way.
With the Imagination Nights promotion, visitors also get twenty percent off their meal at Cafe Aquaria, so you can even save money on your dinner while you are at it.
Get in free on your birthday
After you pick up your free Starbucks drink on your birthday, why not take a free trip to the aquarium? If you are not sure how to celebrate, the Georgia Aquarium will let you in for free as long as you have proof it is your birthday. It is recommended that you bring either a valid ID or a copy of your birth certificate, but what you get is well worth the trouble.
Once you've proved it is your birthday, you get a Total Ticket which not only gets you in the door but also into every show and exhibit available. Any friends or family you bring with you will have to pay, but as long as they use any of the other offers listed here, you will still save more than you spend overall.
Save for the rest of the year
Until the end of the year, the Georgia Aquarium is offering twenty percent off all general admission tickets as a way of thanking loyal customers throughout the year. You do not have to purchase in advance, go any certain days—there are no catches whatsoever. Just walk up the morning you want to attend and buy your discounted ticket at the kiosk, no strings attached. Now that is the best kind of deal.
Get military discounts every Monday
From now until the end of the year, former and active members of the military can save up to thirty percent of their general admission ticket every Monday with a valid military ID through the Georgia Aquarium's Military Mondays deal. Available for veterans too, this deal is not available online because of the need for identification, but bring your proof to the ticket kiosk and get the deal. It is the Georgia Aquarium's way of thanking all members of the military for their service.
Get the best deal in the city with the Atlanta CityPass.
As said from the start, the Georgia Aquarium is one of the best attractions in Atlanta but is nowhere near the only place you will want to visit, and the Atlanta CityPass recognizes that. For one flat price of roughly $75, you get access to the following places:
-World of Coca Cola
-Inside CNN Studio Tour
-Zoo Atlanta OR Center for Civil and Human Rights
-Fernbank Museum of Natural History OR College Football Hall of Fame
With the Atlanta CityPass, you get to go to five separate places in the city with several options. Do you have small kids who want to see lions, tigers, and bears, but a few of the adults want to go to the Civil Rights Center? Just get everyone the same pass, and you can visit all the different places you want without having to divide your time. Even better your pass is good for nine days after you buy it, so you do not have to fit all of these attractions into one day. It also comes with the perk of being able to skip many of the ticket lines at these places, saving you even more time and money. If you plan to visit even two of the places listed, the Atlanta CityPass still saves you money, it may be the best way to get into the Georgia Aquarium.
