How to Get Discounter Theater Tickets in Las Vegas
Las Vegas is simply a wonderful city. There are always a hundred things going on, and a million things to see. Almost every hotel in Vegas has a number of shows performing nightly – many of these shows are high budget productions that are of unequaled quality anywhere in the world.
If you know exactly what show you want to see, and when you want to see it, the best way to arrange tickets is probably directly from the shows website. However, if you have a little bit of flexibility, you can take advantage of two discount ticket vendors that are located along the strip. These discount ticket vendors sell last minute tickets, usually for the day of the production. The discount ticket vendors have a different selection of tickets each night, but they always have a large selection. If you are willing to wait until the “day of” to decide what show you’re seeing, this is a great way to save some money!
The two discount ticket vendors are Tix4Tonight and Tickets2Nite. Both vendors have locations along the Las Vegas strip. The general procedure is to arrive early in the morning – right when the vendors open. Tickets do sell out throughout the day, so the earlier you can get there, the better. There is usually a line that starts forming up to an hour before the ticket booths open.
Once you make your way to the front of the line and purchase your tickets, you will likely receive a voucher. You must then take that voucher to the show box office (usually located in the hotel where the theater is) to exchange the vouchers for actual tickets. Do this as soon as you get the vouchers, since the seat numbers are assigned on a “first come, first serve” basis. The sooner you exchange the vouchers for tickets, the better seats you will get!
It’s worth noting that the ticket vendors add a small service charge (usually around $3-$4) for each ticket that you purchase. Since show tickets can easily cost over $100 each, the service charge is a small penalty to pay when you’re saving up to 50%.
