CityPass saves you TIME by not having to buy separate tickets at each attraction and you’ll save over 45% if you bought CityPass then if you purchased tickets individually. Best part – you get to cut the line and move straight to the front!
Locales covered by CityPass:
Ladies and Gentlemen, you can’t whisper on the Internet. After my initial thoughts on CityPass, the good folks there read my post and sent me two complimentary CityPasses to use in New York City! I didn’t talk to CityPass, they contacted me. Grabbing my Dad, we went off to explore NYC.
We first started at the Empire State Building. We got there about 9:30AM on a cloudy morning so the lines were not long at all. I can imagine what it is like on a sunny spring Saturday or Sunday.
If you do have CityPass you can skip the long lines for tickets. Just flash the book to the ushers and security and you cut to the head of the line. We even had a special, shorter line for the metal detectors and security scan. This is even more important during the busy spring and summer tourist seasons, where long lines will definitely await you!
The CityPass ticket got us entrance to the 86th floor observatory. There is a separate $15US fee to get to the 102nd floor, which we passed on. The 86th floor observatory was fine for us.
