At Kids Pass, we want you to be able to do as many things as possible with your kids this summer – and, if you can do some of it for free, so much the better! After all, it leaves money for something else, like ice creams, treats, and meals out, doesn’t it?
Sound good? We have put together a list of attraction child policies allowing your kids to go absolutely free! Plus, there’s a few Kids Pass special offers thrown in there too (exclusive to members)…
