Thanks to the partnership with Alaska Airlines, these families will have access to an annual family membership that's discounted from $145 to $35 and daily admission is reduced from $15.95 for adults and $12.95 for children to $1.00 for both.

And something else to know about: a special "sensory-friendly" event is coming up on Sunday, Feb. 9. And guess what? It's free! Free admission and free parking.

There will be exclusive hours for kids with special needs and their families. CuriOdyssey will close to the general public at 2:30 that day. Then from 3 p.m.-5 p.m., the families can enjoy the hands-on exhibits and see the amazing animals that live at CuriOdyssey.
