The nationwide deal is valid from Memorial Day through Labor Day weekends (May 26 to Sept. 4) for incoming fall 2017 fifth graders. A fourth-grade report card verifying that the child is an incoming fifth grader, a passport or a birth certificate to show age is required. 

The “Ticket to Mars” is available here; it can be printed and presented at any ticket window. Note that there’s a limit of three free children’s tickets per paying adult, and they’re not valid for use with any other offers.

Admission is $50 plus tax for adults and $40 plus tax for children ages three to 11.
