Save 10–20% on memberships to the Greater Cleveland Aquarium

Imagine a holiday gift with no shopping, no shipping and no waiting. Black Friday (November 26, 2021) through Cyber Monday (November 29, 2021) the Greater Cleveland Aquarium is offering 20% off annual passes purchased online.  “This holiday season, you can support a local attraction while saving some money and hassle,” says Tyler Hobel, membership coordinator.  Annual passes will remain on sale online through December 25, but the discount drops to 10% after the initial weekend. 

Throughout the promotion, annual pass purchases will be accompanied by a coupon redeemable for a Fantastic Finn chocolate bar.  “Every membership purchase includes a milk chocolate bar, but a select few will include either a golden or a silver ticket that unlocks a special prize package,” explains Hobel.  Prizes range from VIP experiences and a bonus year of membership to credit in the Coral Cove Gift Shop.  “It adds a little surprise oomph, or should I say ‘oompah’ to the gift,” jokes Hobel. 

The membership discounts and accompanying Fantastic Finn golden ticket giveaway is available to anyone purchasing an annual pass for themselves or as a gift, as well as to those who are extending their current annual passes or rejoining after having lapsed as members.  The cost of an Aquarium annual pass ranges from $45 – $130 ($36 – $117 during the promotion) for 1–8 guests at the individual, senior, couple, senior couple, family or grandparent levels.  While the chocolate bar coupon must be redeemed by January 21, 2022, all gift passes are valid for one year from activation by the gift recipient.  “If you send a gift pass to your sister in December and she doesn’t activate it until February, she can access visitation, program and discount benefits until February of the following year,” explains Hobel. 

During the Aquarium’s four-day cyber sale, general admission gift ticket vouchers also can be purchased for 20% off (limit six).  Gift recipients must call and redeem their general admission vouchers for a visit on a specific date and time up to two years from date of purchase.  Vouchers are not active until a guest calls to redeem as a reservation. 

“The Greater Cleveland Aquarium’s year-end promotion is always a terrific opportunity to save on a gift that’s big enough to wow and small enough to wrap,” says Hobel.
