Destiny USA Pre-sale begins today; Fun Passes valid January 7 – March 17 and include admission into any four-participating dining and attractions at Destiny USA, plus FREE admission to The MOST, Syracuse Crunch, Rosamond Gifford Zoo and Syracuse University Men’s and Women’s Basketball


Syracuse, N.Y. (December 14, 2018) —The Destiny USA Winter Fun Pass is back! Once again, the pass known to offer jam-packed fun at a low cost, includes FREE admission to some of the hottest attractions in Central New York. Sponsored by Burdick Lexus, the 2019 Destiny USA Winter Fun Pass will be valid from January 7, 2019 to March 17, 2019.

The Fun Pass is available for pre-sale now through January 6, 2019. Each purchase provides guests with a barcoded booklet of tickets to be used at four of 28 participating Destiny USA venues. For one low price, each booklet offers a savings up to 65 percent, per person, and includes a bonus admission ticket to a Syracuse Crunch game, the Rosamond Gifford Zoo, The Museum of Science and Technology (The MOST), as well as a Syracuse University men’s and women’s basketball game. Restrictions apply and can be viewed online at www.destinyusa.com/winter.

The Fun Pass will even include Destiny USA’s newest attraction, APEX Entertainment (opening in February 2019), and new offers from Cinnabon, 5 Wits and more. Guests who purchase pre-sale Fun Passes will receive a special holiday voucher, perfect for gift giving this holiday season.

“We’ve received numerous requests from shoppers to offer a pre-sale for the Fun Pass, in time for the holidays and today, we are thrilled to announce that it is back by popular demand, with more attractions and restaurant options,” said Nikita Jankowski, director of marketing, Destiny USA. “Our continued partnerships with other major attractions like the MOST, the Crunch, the zoo and Syracuse University, help to create an overall welcoming pass for tourists to explore Destiny USA as well as the destination.”

“This exciting partnership once again brings together two of the state’s top destinations for entertainment,” said Anthony Di Fino, associate athletics director for business development, Syracuse University. “The Winter Fun Pass has been an incredible value and adding an admission to one of seven Syracuse Orange men’s basketball games and one of three Syracuse Orange women’s basketball games make it better (including the home game vs Defending National Champion Notre Dame in which Syracuse will attempt to break their home attendance record). Tourists will experience the magic of the Carrier Dome and two of the best college basketball teams in the country, right here in Central New York.”
