You have probably seen or heard about Pogo Pass on MyDFWMommy.  If not it’s a year long, family based entertainment pass, that gets pass holders into some of the best venues in Dallas.

Get the Standard Pass which includes 24 venues, Sky Zone included for $39.98 with the code: MYDFWMOMMY (Retail $49.98). You can view the attractions included HERE

For example if you wanted to head to the Fort Worth Zoo, Sky Zone, and SUMMIT just three of the venues, your pass has already paid for it’s self!

This is truly one of the best deals in family entertainment out there. You’ll enjoy a FULL YEAR of admissions to places all over town (each place has their own details about how many times you get in with the pass).

Some things to know:

Each person needs their own pass

A different pass is needed for use in each city  (someone with a DFW Pogo Pass can’t use that in San Antonio, for example.  They would need a San Antonio Pogo Pass).
