CORPUS CHRISTI, TEXAS – On Friday, June 27, the Texas State Aquarium (TSA) will be rolling out a new summer pricing structure designed to optimize the guest experience by incentivizing weekday attendance. The structure, which will continue through Labor Day, September 1, is meant to better balance attendance between weekdays and weekends to achieve the best possible guest experience.
According to Aquarium President and CEO Tom Schmid, “We continue to see strong visitation on weekends, and I’m sure this July and August will be no different. This pricing model will hopefully allow guests with flexibility in their schedule to visit the Aquarium during the week, and save some money.”
Beginning on Friday, June 27, the Aquarium pricing structure will be as follows:
|Friday – Sunday Tickets||Monday – Thursday Discounted Tickets|
|Members: FREE||Members: FREE|
|Adult (13 & Up): $21.95||Adult (13 & Up): $17.95|
|Senior (65 & Up): $19.95||Senior (65 & Up): $15.95|
|Military: $19.95||Military: $15.95|
|Child (3-12): $15.95||Child: $13.95|
|Under 2: FREE||Under 2: FREE|
|Parking: $5.00||Parking: $5.00|
Guests purchasing their tickets online will have the option to purchase either weekend tickets or weekday tickets. Weekday tickets purchased online can be redeemed on a weekend, but guests doing so will be required to pay the difference between the weekend price and weekday price for each ticket.
