Even though summer is almost over, you might still be expecting out of town visitors for Labor Day or some September fun in Los Angeles. Entertaining visiting firemen can be costly, but one way to save bucks is by buying a CityPass.
The you can take your friends or family to Disney California Adventure Park, check out the wax figures at the Madame Tussauds and romp around other entertaining sites without busting your budget. The money-saving booklet can slice up to 50 percent off combined admissions to the top sights in and around Los Angeles. In addition to saving money, CityPASS holders can save time by zip-lining through main-entrance ticket lines at many venues.
Check out your options:
- Three glorious new experiences await Southern California theme parks. For starters there’s Cars Land, a brand-new area inside the Disney California Adventure Park; Manta, a manta ray-themed coaster at SeaWorld San Diego; and Transformers: The Ride — 3D at Universal Studios Hollywood. All three attractions opened just after Memorial Day and have been drawing large, enthusiastic crowds. But now that the kids are heading back to school, those crowds will be thinning after Labor Day, so don’t miss your chance to check out these additions while the lines are shorter. Get a Southern California CityPASS admissions card, and shave off 30 percent on combined admission to all three of the parks mentioned above plus Disneyland Park. Southern California CityPASS admission cards cost $279 for adults; $239 for children ages three to nine.
- Betty White and Justin Bieber are two major new entries this year to the life-like wax collection at Madame Tussauds Hollywood. Like most of the figures on display there Betty and Justin make great photo ops. Before you stroll down Hollywood’s star-studded Walk of Fame, however, pick up a Hollywood CityPASS ticket booklet, which gets you into Madame Tussauds, and also includes tickets for a Starline Movie Stars’ Homes Tour, a Red Line Hollywood Behind-the-Scenes tour, and a choice between either the Dolby Theatre (home of the Oscars) Guided Tour or The Hollywood Museum. The Hollywood pass costs $59 for adults and $39 children for kids three to 11 and shaves off 46 percent off regular combined admission.
CityPASS ticket booklets are valid for nine consecutive days (14 days for Southern California), beginning with the first day of use. Ticket booklets for all of the destinations mentioned above can be purchased online at CityPASS.com or at any of the attractions.
