7) 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 off general admission prices.

There are three different types of this service available in Sin City: all-inclusive, flex pass and build your own pass.

The last option on that list is probably the easiest to use because you only have to purchase admission for 2 or more attractions, tours or activities in order to save 20% on both.



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 | $49
  • Grand Canyon Day Trip | $160
  • Las Vegas Helicopter Tour | $124
  • Richard Petty Driving Experience | $150
  • Criss Angel Mindfreak | $120
  • Hoover Dam Tour | $60
  • Blue Man Group | $150
  • Marvel Avengers S.T.A.T.I.O.N. | $39
  • Madame Tussauds | $30
  • The Mentalist | $67
  • 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.
