Zoo Knoxville Offers $2 Off Admission March 12-16, 2018

To celebrate Spring Break, Zoo Knoxville is offering $2 off general admission tickets Monday, March 12 through Friday, March 16, 2018.

Zoo Knoxville’s new Gibbon Trails and Langur Landing in Boyd Family Asian Trek, a $6 million multi-acre habitat for white-handed gibbons and silvered leaf langurs, immerses guests in a 360 degree aerial experience. The habitats are designed with multiple viewing levels that allow the primates to pass directly over the heads of visitors or be eye-to- eye with them in a 60-foot- tall treehouse accessible by a suspension bridge. The new expansion also allows soaring views of Tiger Forest and incorporates a new outdoor training demonstration area for Malayan tigers.

Gibbon Trails is home to one of the zoo’s most beloved residents, Georgie, and his new companion Naomi. Langur Landing is home to Walter, Teagan, Melody and two-month-old baby Opie, a family of silvered leaf langurs that are a new
species to Zoo Knoxville. The zoo also has a full schedule of special Bird Show sessions and animal encounters with zoo staff for the week, weather permitting. Popular zoo activities such as giraffe feeding, camel rides, the Zoo Choo Train and the Fuzzy-Go- Round carousel will also be open.

Discounted tickets may be purchased at the zoo’s ticket window during regular zoo hours.

She proceed to explain to me this subscription program that is just 10 bucks a month and gets you access to one movie of your choice per day at participating theaters. Every day if you want.

What?! That sounds too good to be true. How is that even a thing?

But it is. I did a lot of research and started asking a lot of friends in the frugal happenings world.

It really is only $9.95 per month no commitment, and there are no blackout dates. As a MoviePass member, you can see up to one standard 2D film per calendar day.
