CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (WDEF) – Since its iconic peaks first rose above the Chattanooga waterfront, the Tennessee Aquarium has been the site of countless cherished memories and inspiring encounters with incredible animals. After 25 years, that role now spans generations of guests.
The Aquarium celebrates its silver anniversary on May 1. On the same day, the return of the Summer Family Pass will let guests forge new memories all season long as they explore the recently opened Lemur Forest exhibit, amble past alligators in Delta Country and marvel at birds rocketing through the waves of Penguin Rock.
The $90 pass will be available only at Chattanooga-area Food City locations through May 31. Pass holders enjoy unlimited daily admission to the Aquarium for two adults and up to five children (ages 18 or younger) through Labor Day, Monday, Sept. 4.
“A visit to the Aquarium sparks curiosity and is a great catalyst for learning,” says Dr. Anna George, the Aquarium’s Vice President of Conservation and Science Education. “While the kids are out of school, we encourage parents to take full advantage of all the Aquarium has to offer with weekly visits planned around our daily special programs.”
The Aquarium’s Summer Family Pass also includes the following benefits:
- Save $4 per person for each 45-minute IMAX with Laser film
- Save $8 per adult and $6.50 per child on River Gorge Explorer tickets
- Additional discounts on Backstage Pass tours and guest tickets
- Save 10 percent at Aquarium gift shops and on concessions
