Zoo New England Review of Ticket Deals
Zoo New England offers several ways to get into the zoo on the cheap, including Kids Price Saturdays, where everyone gets in for the kids’ price, combo passes that save you 20 percent, military, teacher, and library card discounts. We sometime find daily deals to both Zoo New England properties, Franklin Park Zoo and the Stone Zoo, but these deals don’t last long. I’ll add them to the list below when they’re available. Bookmark this post and check back before you head out. If you know of another zoo deal or coupon, please share in the comment box below.
Zoo New England is actually two zoos in one. The Franklin Park Zoo is a 72-acre venue inside Boston’s historic Franklin Park. Stone Zoo (formerly the Middlesex Fells Zoo), spans 26-acres near the Spot Pond reservoir in Stoneham, MA.
Where to get Discount Tickets:
DEAL 1: Zoo New England Combo Pass — Admission is included with two types of Go Boston Card (Franklin Park Zoo). These are way better than they used to be. You can choose as few as two attractions to visit over 30 days and save 20 percent or more on each. For example, out of more than a dozen choices, you can pick only the Zoo and, say, New England Aquarium, and save at least 20% on both. You can show your pass on your smart phone, too. Easy.
