As a semi-regular visitor to Vegas, I find the Las Vegas Power Pass to be an excellent way to both save money and experience attractions/places I likely wouldn't have discovered (or even considered) on my own. HOWEVER, I say this as someone who likes off-the-beaten strip experiences (like the Atomic Testing Museum and Pop Culture Walking Tour of Fremont Street) and who sprung for the Five Day Pass both times I purchased. I implore anyone thinking about getting the pass to be realistic about how much you want to do over the course of your time in Vegas, as well as the amount of time you have to spend driving (or being driven) to multiple sites in and around the city.
It was a great value for your money. I did have a couple issues with the website and it taking two payments for one transaction. When I called customer care they where not as help or concern with my issues. The best part about the pass was the tour it was a great value and some of the other activities I did. overall great value for your money. the only problem is the website makes it seem as if you have all options to do everything but when you get it it is not an option unless you purchase the multiple days.
Would have been nice if I new there were charges over and above what wad included in the pass.
Had to wait in lines to get tickets, and go on attractions, had to go to shop show them pass then they gave you tickets then you go to attractions and wait in line so that's two lines on some, and some of the things we thought we were getting were not apart of the pass, and the deuce pass you have to go to back there every day to pick it up which can become a pain. The only thing that was easy and helpfull is the mono rail pass.....Very disappointed.

Located at the New York-New York Hotel & Casino, this famous roller coaster is a favorite amongst tourists worldwide. But the fun doesn't stop at the coaster! You can also visit the adjoining Big Apple Arcade and enjoy a host of different arcade games and video games.
The Big Apple Coaster was the first coaster to feature a 180-degree "heartline" twist and dive maneuver, and you can find over a million adrenaline junkies flocking to this ride each year for a rush of heart-stopping excitement.
