While we thank you for your service and are grateful, the Trail does not offer a discount Military admission in general. We do have a special Heroes Night planned for Tuesday, December 11th where we'll honor and recognize active military, veterans, and first responders with complimentary ZIP Fast Pass admission starting at 6:00pm for them and their families. An advance ticket is not necessary. Simply wear your uniform, or present your military ID or badge to Trail staff at the ZIP Entrance for proper complimentary ZIP admission.
Disabled Veterans and family members can receive free general admission gate entry starting at 6:00 pm, by presenting their state or federal issued credentials. Free ADA parking is also available for one vehicle with accompanying state or federal issued credentials or an ADA plate or placard. Family members will still need to purchase a parking pass for additional vehicles as needed.
Current enrolled UT Students can take advantage of special student discount pricing on Sunday, December 16th for UT Night. Just enter the special promotional code and your UT Student ID # during the purchase process.
Otherwise, there is no special student, discount, or promotional pricing.
Thank you Austin! 2017 Austin Trail of Lights was filled with smiling faces, amazing performances from our community and of course millions of twinkling lights! From spinning under the Zilker Tree, around the carousel and Ferris Wheel to visits with Santa - check out a few highlights!
