RELAUNCHED NEW ORLEANS POWER PASS MAKES THE ‘BIG EASY’ EASIER THAN EVER!
Almost 10 years after Hurricane Katrina caused widespread devastation in New Orleans, the city has well and truly bounced back and is once again a major draw for tourists heading to the Deep South. One of the best ways to experience all that the city has to offer is with the New Orleans Power Pass (www.neworleanspass.com), a sightseeing card that helps visitors save time and money at top attractions.
Just relaunched with a new smartphone- and tablet-ready website, it is now simpler than ever to purchase the New Orleans Power Pass, which offers free entry into more than 25 of the city’s top attractions, tours and experiences. The pass also includes fast-track entry at selected top attractions and a free Adventures in New Orleans Bus Tour, which is the ideal way for visitors to find their way around when they first arrive in the city.
Priced from $80.49 per adult and $49.49 per child (aged 2-12) for a one-day pass, the New Orleans Power Pass is a convenient single purchase that allows pass holders to see the very best of the city without spending hours waiting in line for tickets at each attraction. It is also the most cost-effective way to enjoy sightseeing in the city. With a one-day pass ($80.49) visitors only need to visit two attractions before they begin to make savings on normal admission and tour prices. Key attractions featured in the pass include:
Audubon Aquarium of the Americas: At New Orleans’ top attraction, visitors can experience one of the best aquariums in the US, see rare Louisiana White Alligators, put their hands in a stingray pool, and take a plunge into the recreated Great Maya Reef for an amazing underwater adventure (certified divers only)
Entergy Imax® Theatre: At this attraction, take an underwater journey with one of two films; Great White Shark 3D and Galapagos: Nature’s Wonderland to learn the truth about the Great White Shark and discover which creatures live below the Pacific Ocean in the Galapagos archipelago.
New Orleans Audubon Zoo: Stop by one of America’s best zoos, which having been specially built to withstand major impact hurricanes, survived Hurricane Katrina. Set over 58 acres, it has over 2,000 animals ranging from gorillas and tigers to Asian elephants, boasts a Swamp exhibit and is home to native Louisiana species.
Audubon Butterfly Garden and Insectarium: Walk amongst butterflies in the Butterfly Garden, get an all-round sensory experience in the Terminix Immersion Theatre, taste critters cooked at special culinary events and see the Wall of Fame that ranks insect survival levels. Perfect for those not afraid of creepy crawlies.
Paddleboat Creole Queen Cruise: Cruise down the Mississippi River aboard the iconic Paddlewheeler Creole Queen to see the city from a unique perspective. Pass by sights like the French Quarter and Jean Lafitte National Park.
Adventures in New Orleans Bus Tour: Visitors can get their bearings and see the sights aboard a bus tour that includes the city’s top attractions and landmarks, including the French Quarter and Jackson Square.
Blaine Kern’s Mardi Gras World: On a one-of-a-kind tour, discover the world of Mardi Gras from the creator of the floats himself, see larger than life costumes and witness the process behind creating the floats first-hand.
Oak Alley Plantation: Tour one of Louisiana’s most iconic plantations which is surrounded by 300-year old oak trees and has played host to Hollywood during the filming of 1978’s The Night Rider and 2012’s Django Unchained.
