“Ripley’s venues (anywhere in the US), Columbus zoo, Wonder Works, IMAX theaters….most places that have some “educational” aspect will honor homeschool discounts. However, many require it be during the school year to get the discounts. Whenever we travel ANYWHERE I have a letter from my BOE stating I am a homeschooler and I ask for the discount. I am rarely turned down and if I am, I have lost nothing but a bit of my time inquiring :)” TGC
