For family packages, annual passes are a fantastic deal. With young children, these attractions are places you can visit a few times in a year. For example, with two children buying an annual pass is already worth it when you go to the Singapore Zoo twice a year.

Being a student is great, you get annual passes cheaper than adults, especially for USS. You only need to visit USS twice to make the annual pass worth it, making it a pretty good deal.
