ABQ BioPark Half-Price Weekend
When Albuquerque BioPark increased admission fees last year, they introduced two-tier pricing. New Mexico residents get cheaper admission to the Zoo and the Aquarium and Botanic Garden than out-of-state visitors. So all you locals, always remember to take your ID! Tots aged 2 and under continue to go free.
Everyone near or far gets a price break on admission during the quarterly Albuquerque BioPark Half-Price Weekend on July 20 and 21, 2013. All individual tickets are discounted by 50%. That means admission to either the ABQ BioPark Zoo or the Aquarium and Botanic Garden on those dates for New Mexico residents is $4.50 for adults, $2.25 for seniors aged 65+, and $2 for kids aged 3-12.
For visitors to New Mexico, the half-price weekend admission fees are $6.25 adults, $2.75 seniors, and $2 for children.
This is the one of a series of slated ABQ BioPark half-price weekends, scheduled every three months. So the next discount weekend won’t be till October – make the most of this one!
Events during the ABQ BioPark half-price weekend include the Dragonfly Festival on Saturday July 20 at the Botanic Garden from 10 am to 2 pm. At the Zoo on both days, you can feed the animals including Polar Bear Feeding at 2:30 pm, Seal & Sea Lion Feeding at 10:30 am and 3:30 pm, and Giraffe Feeding from noon to 1:30 pm. Over at the Aquarium they’ll have divers plunging into the Pacific Coral Reef Tank at 10:30 am, the Atlantic Coral Reef Tank at 11:30 am and then into the Shark Tank at 2 pm. General BioPark admission is from 9 am to 4:30 pm.
Military families listen up! Remember that military (both active and non-active) always get $2 off adult admission and $1 off children’s admission, with your military ID.
Albuquerque BioPark admission is always free for children aged 2 and under, and of course the BioPark’s Tingley Beach is also always free for everyone.
