Pogo Pass Review

Your All Access Pass to Arizona FUN!

If you’re like me, you love a good deal when you can get your hands on one. But I can honestly say that the Pogo Pass has saved our family more money than ANY other coupon or discount I’ve come across the last several years!

I was introduced to the Pogo Pass several years ago by my friend, back when it was just starting to become more popular. I will admit, I was a little confused, maybe even skeptical, at first. She told me that I could purchase a Pogo Pass for $39 a YEAR, and that it would give me access to all these amazing events and venues around Arizona. I originally thought the pass would give me great deals to these places if I paid the $39 fee. But I was dead wrong. And ever since purchasing the pass that first year, I have renewed every year since.

The $39 annual membership fee gives you the all access pass to get into the associated events and venues (listed later in this post) for FREE. 

That’s right, FREE.

Here’s just ONE example of how good of a deal the Pogo Pass is:

Admission to the Phoenix Zoo for 1 adult costs $25.

With the Pogo Pass, you get 2 visits a year.

So, you can pay $25 for 1 visit to the zoo, or you can pay $35 for 2 visits AND get access to a long list of other venues you can visit for free!

The deal speaks for itself.

I know it sounds “too good to be true”, but trust me, I’ve been using the Pogo Pass for years now and will forever be renewing it.

Date Nights AND Family Fun, all in one pass!

I purchased my first Pogo Pass prior to having my daughter, back when my husband and I just got married. After looking over the venues, I thought it would provide a lot of fun date night opportunities, especially for newlyweds who were on a tight budget. I was absolutely right!

We are big sports fans, so the first year of our marriage was spent going to countless sporting events including the Diamondbacks, Rattlers, and Arizona State teams. We went to all these events for FREE after paying the annual membership fee of $39 each (which is great for a newlywed couple on a newlywed budget!).

The Pogo Pass provided us with a year’s worth of entertainment for an incredibly low price, and it has done so ever since. 

Now that we have our toddler, she too, has her own Pogo Pass. The membership has provided us with hours and hours of family fun at some of the most exciting places in town. 

Now, before diving into the many events, attractions, and venues you have free access to with the Pogo Pass, let’s go over a few frequently asked questions that you may have.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is a Pogo Pass?

A Pogo Pass is a membership that gives an individual 12 months of FREE access to a variety of events, attractions, and venues throughout Arizona.

How do I use the Pogo Pass?

Simply present your Pogo Pass barcode at any of the current participating venues. Please make sure to check availability at each venue by clicking the venue logo on the website. Sporting events require you to reserve your tickets under “events” on that teams individual page.

Is there a mobile app available?

Yes! It’s super convenient to have our Pogo Passes right on our phones so we can easily access them when we arrive at each venue.

How long is my pass valid for?

Pogo Passes are valid 1 year from the date of purchase, not for a calendar year. If you purchase your pass in the middle of the year and events are past or out of season, they will be available to you the following season until your pass expires. 

At what age do I need Pogo Pass?

I just started getting my daughter (2) her own Pogo Pass this year, because most of the venues on the pass allow free admission for children under the age of 2. Before she had her own, I only had a pass for my husband and I, and Scotti would generally get into places for free. But you can always check the current list of venues to see at what age they start charging admission.

Will any new Venues or Events be added?

Yes! I’ve had a Pogo Pass membership for several years, and our family has been able to visit a variety of venues that have been added over the years. Whenever they add a new venue, you’re able to start visiting IMMEDIATELY with an active pass, at no additional charge. So I always like to keep an eye on the venues to see if anything new has popped up!

Is the Pogo Pass only available in Arizona?

No, there are a few states that offer the Pogo Pass membership! Click the location below to see what venues are offered at each of them.
