Great Ticket Deals to Animal Attractions

If you love animal attractions, you’re in luck this month. Two Central Florida zoos are offering admission deals this month. You can even score free admission tickets for your children!

Central Florida ZooThe Central Florida Zoo and Botanical Gardens, located at 3755 NW Hwy. 17-92 in Sanford, FL is offering free admission for two children (12 and younger) on Saturday, August 23 when accompanied by a paying adult. You must present the coupon found on the Orlando Family Magazine’s web site. There will be special activities offered by the magazine from 9 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. Even if you cannot attend the zoo on this date, the cost of admission is reasonable and is a great experience for everyone in your family or group.

If you’ve not been to this zoo lately, you’ll love all of the improvements and additional features that have been incorporated. The zoo includes more than 500 animals representing nearly 200 species. The new giraffe exhibit even allows your family to feed the giraffes (additional charge). ORLANDO TOURIST TIP: Since it is hot this August, bring a swimsuit and cool off in the new Wharton-Smith Tropical Splash Ground! This is great for the young ones and is included in regular zoo admission.

Lowry Park ZooIf you are in the Tampa area, check out the Lowry Park Zoo. During the month of August, they are offering U.S. military and Florida first responders free weekday admission. To get this deal, you must register on their site at lowryparkzoo.com/Hero, print the voucher and present it with your qualifying identification at the ticket window. ORLANDO TOURIST TIP: Each qualifying military member or first responder gets to have a free guest, as well as purchase up to four additional one-day admission tickets at half price! If you are a first responder, military dependent or service member, you should not pass up this deal.

mother and baby gorillaAnother excellent place to see animal attractions is at Disney’s Animal Kingdom. Free or cheap tickets to this Orlando theme park are rarely found. If you know of any great ticket deals, be sure to let us know. If you love gorillas, you’ll want to check out the baby gorilla born a few days ago (August 7). It’s a boy! So far everything is going well for the little guy who will be named soon. His mother is Azizi and the father’s name is Gino. This is the fourth gorilla born at Disney’s Animal Kingdom.

There are many other animal attractions located in Central Florida. Be sure to check out our list and their individual web sites. Now that the children are returning to school, why not treat them to a trip to the zoo or animal park? It will be a fun and inexpensive learning experience.

Disney’s Animal Kingdom – A Favorite

Disney has created the Animal Kingdom theme park with something for everyone to enjoy. Personally the main attraction for me is the Serengeti tour where you get to see numerous breeds of exotic breeds of animals in open spaces and not in cages. A new baby Rhino was born recently the seventh birth of Rhinos at Disney’s Animal Kingdom. It will be a few weeks before the new born joins all the other animals in the public view. I have to give kudos to Disney for not only caging the animals but also its breeding program which helps keep breeds from extinction.

Because it’s Disney you know they have some fabulous live shows (not involving the animals) these fantastic shows and superb talent are my second reason I enjoy Disney’s Animal Kingdom so much. Thrilling stunts, acrobatics and great musical productions sure do make their shows a hit!

I’m really not a ride person for the most part but Disney’s Animal Kingdom offers a nice variety of attractions from lame to tame. It’s nice that wide variety of rides that will please young and old.

I guess because I love animals so much my three favorite theme parks in Orlando are Disney’s Animal kingdom, Sea World and my absolute favorite Discovery Cove. If you found this article useful I hope you will registering with us and get updated on every new story on our blog.
