“Staycation” package back and expanded

Posted By on Wed, Mar 12, 2014 at 2:27 PM

Last May, we told you about PittsburghPass, a local woman’s plan to help families have more fun on less money, especially in the summer.

The plan that provides bulk-rate-discounted admission to five local day-trip getaways is back, with new options.

For $83.99, PittsburghPass offers one person one admission to Kennywood, Sandcastle, Pittsburgh Zoo & PPG Aquarium, Carnegie Science Center and The Children’s Museum of Pittsburgh.

Each pass costs $83.99 regardless of age — though the price is only slightly less than the total of a kid’s admission prices to all five. (Kids under 2 get free admission at all the venues.) Total savings can be up to $143 for a family of four.

The pass, the brainchild of Miranda Bauer, recalls area hotels’ offers of discounted admissions to such attractions.

The new option is a “Singles & Couples” pass: $65.99 gets you admission to Sandcastle, Kennywood and the zoo.

Both kinds of pass are on offer until June 7, and are good throughout the 2014 season for each venue, says Bauer. (That means through year’s end for the zoo, Science Center and Children’s Museum.)

Bauer, of Baldwin, is a former corporate marketing manager who’s now a stay-at-home mom.
