ABQ BioPark Military Discount
The Albuquerque BioPark military discount gives a price break to active and non-active military personnel visiting the BioPark Zoo, Aquarium, and Botanic Garden. That’s a very good move to thank our service men and women.
The ABQ BioPark military discount on tickets was introduced during 2012, and it gives $2 off adult admission and $1 off children’s admission. The discount is valid for active and non-active personnel, although you do of course need to show your military ID. The ABQ BioPark military discount is only for general admission, not for any special events such as the concerts at the zoo.
Albuquerque BioPark regular admission for entry into either the Zoo, or the Aquarium and Botanic Garden is:
- New Mexico residents: $9 for adults, $4.50 for seniors 65+, $4 for kids aged 3-12, and ages 2 and under go free. Take your New Mexico ID to get the local admission rate.
- Visitors who are not New Mexico residents: $12.50 for adults, $5.50 for seniors 65+, $4 for kids aged 3-12. And hey, they don’t discriminate against non-New Mexican kiddies. Tots ages 2 and under still go free.
A combo ticket for all BioPark locations is only available on Tuesday to Sunday mornings from 9 am to noon. That’s because if you don’t buy the combo ticket early in the day, you won’t have time to trip round all the BioPark venues anyway. The combo tickets include the fun mini-train rides between the locations.
For New Mexico residents the combo cost is $15 for adults, $8 for seniors, and $6 for kids. For out-of-state visitors, the combo cost is $20 for adults, $10 for seniors, and $6 for kids.
The BioPark’s Tingley Beach is always free for everyone, at 1800 Tingley Dr SW.
Albuquerque BioPark Zoo (formerly the Rio Grande Zoo) is located at 903 10th St. SW. Albuquerque BioPark Aquarium and Botanic Garden is located at 2601 Central Avenue NW.
