DENVER - Want to take the family to visit the Denver Aquarium, but concerned about the high price of tickets?
The aquarium is offering Summer Family Night with discounted tickets after 5 p.m. Monday through Thursday until August 7.
On Summer Family Nights, kids 10 and under get in for $5, instead of the normal $11.99.
There's a discount possible for adult tickets (12 and up), however, you have to have a restaurant receipt to get the discounted admission price of $11.99, instead of the regular $17.99. Kids who are 11 years old are normally $11.99, so there's no special for them.
Bottom line? If you have kids 10 and under, this is a good discount deal to take them to the aquarium. However, if your kids are 12 and up, you'll have to buy at least one adult meal to get the adult ticket discount. The discount is $6 on tickets and most entrees are $10.99 (burger without fries) to $24.99 (snapper). So depending on what you order, it's an OK deal.
If you do want to take the kids to the Aquarium restaurant, meals are $2.99 for kids 10 and under during the Summer Family Nights. A good price for kids, but adult entrees are not discounted.
Got all that?
Again, the special is only available Monday through Thursday and it ends Aug. 7.
