Shedd Aquarium offers “Ward Day” discounts for 2nd Ward

The Shedd Aquarium (1200 S. Lake Shore Drive) has been around for over 80 years in the South Loop, providing family-friendly entertainment and community gatherings for Chicago residents.

On Sunday, March 4, the Shedd is offering all-day discounted Shedd Passes for residents of Alderman Fioretti’s ward.

According to media contacts at the Shedd Aquarium, 2nd Ward residents get a “Buy One Get One Free” adult ticket deal for $28.95, or half off that price for one adult ticket. For kids aged 3-11 tickets are 19.95 for two or half off of that price for one child. As always, children under three are admitted for free.

Ward residents can also eat and shop with a 10 percent discount on food and gift store items. A bonus for this deal is that residents can skip the line and pick up their tickets at will-call.

A normal “Total Experience Pass” at the Shedd is $34.95 per adult ticket and $25.95 for kids aged 3-11, and that includes the 4D Theater Experience, which the “Ward Day” ticket does not. Patrons pay $4 extra for this feature.

Will you be heading to the Shedd on March 4?

Love this promotion! I think it's something the aquarium should do more often. It's a great establishment, but it's a big tourist attraction and not something the locals always take advantage of. I don't see it advertised often (maybe I'm just not looking in the right places?) and I don't hear much about talk it. I hope this gets natives who have never been to Shedd to visit.
