Without auto shows, the only way to see future vehicles would be to hop in a car, gun it to 88 miles per hour, and search for future vehicles on a smartphone. Behold the four-wheeled future with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get admission for two to the Motor Trend International Auto Show – Baltimore at the Baltimore Convention Center (up to a $20 value). This Groupon is valid for entry on one of the following dates:
- Thursday, February 9, from noon to 10 p.m.
- Friday, February 10, from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m.
- Saturday, February 11, from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m.
- Sunday, February 12, from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.<p>
Motor Trend Auto Shows’ Baltimore edition greets car-lovers with automotive attractions that showcase popular new rides. Visitors 21 and older may grip wheels, shift into gear, and terrify vacationing insects with test-drives of the latest Chevrolet, Buick, and GMC vehicles, including new versions of the timeless Camaro and plug-in hybrid electric Volt. Pre-production displays herald the next step in vehicular advancements by rolling out autos such as the 2013 Ford Escape. Special guests dot the show’s lineup, with WWE superstar Beth Phoenix and retired Baltimore Orioles player Chris Hoiles spending early Saturday afternoon signing autographs for fans and ferociously growling at enemies. King Robota, a comic-bot towering more than 8 feet tall, joins the revelry with dancing and musical performances on Saturday and Sunday.
Parents can coordinate their visit to overlap with family day on February 12, which admits children 12 and younger for free with a paying adult or an artificially intelligent car. Admission to the auto show is normally free for children 6 and younger; $4 for kids aged 7–12; $6 for military personnel with ID, and $6–$8 for senior citizens 62 and older.
Though Motor Trend International Auto Show – Baltimore features discounted price for children, seniors, and military personnel, this Groupon still offers the best deal available for most people.
