ABQ BioPark Half-Price Weekend October 2013
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 October 19 and 20, 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 until January. Plan ahead and make the most of this one!
It’s a great opportunity to see Rozie the elephant’s new baby elephant. The girl calf was born on October 2 and she has started to venture out into the yard for a few hours each day. You can see the baby elephant’s schedule here. She will be called either Jazmine, Roxy, Nita, or Chamiza. Got an opinion? Vote on your favorite name here at Facebook. I voted for Chamiza… because it’s a native plant but the Z pays fit nicely with other family names. I hope older sister Daizy doesn’t get too jealous of all the attention on the new arrival.
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.
