    Do you know if it’s still free to visit The Dig? It seems they are charging now but it’s hard to get information even when calling Atlantis directly. They say you can’t get a pass just for The Dig but you can get a day pass for $45(Adults) & $30 (Kids) for The Dig, Predator Lagoon, and The Ruins Lagoon

      Yes the Dig is still free. Atlantis has tightened up how non hotel guests are able to roam the property. You cannot access the Predator Lagoon without a pass or being a hotel guest. Usually I have not seen any hotel personnel checking room keys to get into the Dig during the day and you can always get there in the evening.

        Just an update: I was there in Dec. 2014 and you can no longer even get into the main entrance without paying 40.00. The Dig is no longer free :(
