georgiaaquarium3If you’re looking for discount tickets to the Georgia Aquarium, you’re in luck, as you’ve got a few ways to get in free or on the cheap, no coupon code required:

  • For a limited time, you can take advantage of an Early Bird online discount & save up to $7 per ticket. To get the deal, purchase tickets online and select and arrive during the first hour of the day. And this is your last chance to take advantage of this perk: Through May 21, 2015, the Early Bird Total Ticket offer is valid for $7 off admission all day long. The Early Bird hour, by the way, is an excellent way to experience the Georgia Aquarium without fighting the crowds.
  • From June 1-August 1, 2015, you can take advantage of an Imagination Nights discount  at the Georgia Aquarium. When you visit after 5:00 p.m. on Monday through Saturday, admission is $24.95 per person, regardless of age.
  • If you’re planning to visit multiple attractions in Atlanta, take advantage of the Atlanta CityPASS to save almost 50% on admission to five Atlanta-area attractions. The Atlanta CityPASS covers admission to The Georgia Aquarium, the World of Coca-Cola, the Inside CNN Studio Tour, Fernbank Museum of Natural History (includes IMAX, too) OR the Center for Civil & Human Rights, and Zoo Atlanta (includes All-Rides Wristband) OR the College Football Hall of Fame. It’s valid for nine days, and if you plan it right, you’ll have two full weekends + the weekdays in between to get to all of the attractions.
  • If you bring your ID or a copy of your birth certificate, you’ll get a free Total Ticket to the Georgia Aquarium on your birthday.
  • You can save a bit on Georgia Aquarium tickets or annual pass purchases, thanks to an offer from Gas South.
