Well we found this Groupon for half off entry that isn’t available YET! (I don’t know when or if it will become available so keep checking as it’s the best deal so far)

So we found some other alternatives:

– Use promo code COLLEGEUTA to save $6.

– A ‘2 tickets for $40’ coupon can be found at North Texas METROPCS stores from March 28th through May 1st
– Discount tickets can be purchased at TOM THUMB & ALBERTSONS stores ($22 for adults, $9 for children)
– $2.00 off discount coupons are available at WAXAHACHIE AUTOPLEX.
– Active MILITARY Personnel and up to four members of their family receive $4.00 off admission (valid only for adult tickets) upon showing valid military identification at the Scarborough Renaissance Festival® Ticket Office. Offer only valid at the Gate.
– SENIORS (65+) receive $2.00 off of adult admission upon showing valid identification at the Scarborough Renaissance Festival® Ticket Office. Offer only valid at the Gate.
– OPENING WEEKEND ONLY (4/9/16 – 4/10/16): Up to 3 children admitted free with each paid adult. Seniors (65+) are 1/2 price.
