Consider the Walking with Dinosaurs family show opening tomorrow and running five days.
Though tickets are supposed to begin at $35 (plus a whopping $9.80 in fees, as indicated below left), opening night tickets are going for $25, as indicated at right.
But you can also follow another promotion and save 25% off all tickets. And I've seen another promotion for 20% off.
A promotion in the Daily News
Meanwhile, the Daily News was doing its part, in Baby T-rex thrills visitors at Brooklyn Bridge Park in preview of 'Walking with Dinosaurs,' coming to Barclays Center:
Brooklyn Bridge Park just for a few minutes last week turned into Jurassic Park.I believe this is what Daniel Boorstin called a pseudo-event.
The Daily News and a few parkgoers got a sneak peek of the “Walking with Dinosaurs Arena Spectacular,” which runs from Wednesday to July 20 at Barclays Center. The star of the preview was a baby Tyrannosaurus rex.
“Wow, look, it’s a dinosaur!” a little girl hollered.
The baby T-rex cost about $250,000 to make and requires one person to operate. Its larger dino cousins take three humans to operate and stand as high as three stories.
Discounts for the Entertainers Basketball Classic
There are deeper discounts for the Entertainers Basketball Classic on July 27, which the Barclays Center is putting on Groupon, which often sells tickets for deep discounts and keeps about half the revenue.
According to the Groupon deal:
- $35 for mid-level end zone seats in sections 102–104 or 112–120 (a $60 value)
- $49 for lower-level end zone seats in sections 1–15, 17, or 31 (an $85 value)
- $99 for lower-center seats in rows 11 and up in sections 7–9 or 23–25 (a $165 value)
- $119 for lower-center seats in rows 1–10 of sections 7–9 and 23–25 (a $195 value)
But even cheapest seats via Ticketmaster include $8.20 in fees, so any deal at least saves such fees.
