A few of you have written to ask about deals on the upcoming Sesame Street Live/Elmo’s Healthy Heroes show at the Tacoma Dome. If you haven’t hung out on the street for a while, the show will have a nutrition/health theme, with Elmo and his pals encouraging kids to have good health, hygiene and sleep habits. I knew I liked him.
I asked the staff at the dome for suggestions, and here’s my scoop for you:
There is a special matinee event when groups of 10 can attend one of two afternoon shows for 10.00.
Any other day/time, groups of 10 can get 3.00 off the regular ticket price, which ranges from 12.00-56.00 ** You can get the group order form for more details.
**Note that discounts don’t apply to the 30 something dollar Gold Circle tickets or to the 56.00 Sunny Circle tickets. Sunny Circle tickets include a special meet and greet time before the show with the “cast.” I guess it’s cheaper than a trip to see Mickey Mouse…..
There will be 3.00 off coupons available as well as places to enter to win family 4 packs of tickets, but these haven’t been announced yet. I’ll try to keep you posted, but I’d suggest “Liking,” the Tacoma Dome Facebook page to stay in the loop. You can also sign up on the Sesame Street Live website to become a favorite friend which is supposed to give you access to presale deals. I’m pretty skeptical about how great these will be, but it’s worth a shot. Edit: O.K., here’s the latest. Thanks very much to Jen from ThriftyNWmom who posted that the Sesame Street Live Facebook page now has a 3.00 off code. The Tacoma Dome has also released their list of locations where you can enter to win family 4 packs, and it says a limited number of coupons are available at these locations as well.
Here’s the scoop, straight from their page: Enter-to-win a Family Four Pack of tickets at select Les Schwab Tire Centers, KeyBank, YMCA, and Boys & Club locations. For specific locations, please see links below. A limited number of coupons are available at these locations as well! To see the links, go here and click on the pic of Elmo!
You can check out food and drink specials now. This is a pdf file.
So, sounds like the best advice if you’re trying to do this on a budget, is to round up a group of friends, or sit tight and wait to find a coupon or enter a contest.
If you do go, be sure to videotape your little one. My boys were both Elmo fanatics at one time, but they’re in total denial about it now. How I wish I had a tape I could pull out to show them! If you get other Elmo news, please share it!
