We are offering residents of Blackpool, Wyre and the Fylde a 40% reduction in admission price throughout March.
Our annual March Madness discount is a thank you to locals living in postcodes FY1 to FY8, PR3 and PR4 for their support throughout the previous 12 months.
This year is set to be another exciting one here at Blackpool Zoo and it will get underway with the reopening of the new, extended penguin facility during March.
The £100,000 improvement works include a brand-new beach, complete with sand from an estuary on the River Mersey, which is set to be eight times bigger than before with more nest boxes added for mating pairs.
An overhaul of the existing pool is also underway including a new lining to make it quicker and easier to clean.
Planting will provide natural shading for the birds and visitors will be able to enjoy a better view with a new walkway that goes all the way round the beach and pool.
March Madness visitors can also use the time to catch up with their favourite residents.
Elephant enthusiasts can head over to Base Camp to catch up with Emmet, Kate, Minbu, Noorjahan, Tara and Esha while those with a soft spot for primates can say hello to our Bornean orangutans Kawan, Summer, Cherie and Jingga before popping next door to see our family of Western lowland gorillas.
Other popular animals include our family of otters, the giraffes, lemurs, gibbons, tapirs, sea lions, red pandas, kangaroos, wolves, zebras and much more!
Nicola Benstead, Marketing and PR Executive at Blackpool Zoo, said: “We are absolutely delighted to once again be offering our March Madness discount to local people.
“The zoo looks so magical in spring, with all the greenery bursting into life and babies starting to arrive across the park.
“We’re looking forward to introducing the penguins to their new home and we are sure everyone is going to be impressed with the renovations.
“Later in spring we will be unveiling the results of our £1.5million refurbishment of the big cat facility and welcoming Alyona and Khari home to Blackpool.
“It will be great to see familiar faces and new visitors come through the doors to mark the start of what is sure to be a fantastic season ahead.”
Residents will need to provide a valid form of identification as proof of address such as a recent utility bill or driving licence, to take advantage of the March Madness offer.
The March Madness discount can be used for up to six people per household and cannot be used in conjunction with family tickets or any other offers. Tickets can be purchased online using the code MARCH2023.
