6. Save Money With a Tourist Pass
If you’re planning to visit a lot of attractions, take more than one tour, or enjoy multiple shows while in Las Vegas, a tourist pass could save you 50% or more.
There are three different types of this service available in Sin City: all-inclusive, flex pass, and build-your-own pass.
This allows you to save a few bucks even if you don’t want to get carried away.
If you’re not interested in a lot of different shows or activities, building your own pass is probably your best bet.
However, if you plan to visit at least 4-5 attractions, an all-inclusive pass will most likely provide the best value.
This option includes admission to dozens of tours, shows, and popular locations for a specific amount of time (1, 2, 3, 4, or 5 days).
Finally, the flex pass allows you to pay one flat price for a set number of activities (3, 4, 5, or 7).
While this is a great option for expensive attractions, the build-your-own pass would be better for services that are already somewhat affordable.
Here are a few of the best attractions and tours included with these tourist passes:
- Hop on Hop off Bus Tour |
- Grand Canyon Day Trip |
- Las Vegas Helicopter Tour |
- Richard Petty Driving Experience |
- Criss Angel Mindfreak |
- Hoover Dam Tour |
- Blue Man Group |
- Marvel Avengers S.T.A.T.I.O.N. |
- Madame Tussauds |
- The Mentalist |
- And more!
No matter which type of pass you choose, you’ll probably be able to save at least 20% - 50% off on tickets for various popular activities.
