Is the Seattle CityPass Worth It?
If you are wanting to see more than two of the attractions, the pass is definitely worth grabbing. Visiting 5 of the attractions, without the CityPass could cost you upwards of $185, so you are saving quite a bit if you will utilize it for all the attractions, especially if you are a family (and see these kinds of savings across multiple family members).
If you went with the Pacific Science Center and the Woodland Park Zoo (the lower cost attractions) , it would cost $$49 for admission without a CityPass, so you can see how much you are saving with a CityPass discount. The Space Needle alone will cost you $62 per adult, and $42 per child, so this is a great savings if you want to experience all of these things.
Things to Know about CityPass Seattle:
The important part to know about a CityPass though is that the Pass is valid for 9 days, starting with the first day of use, so you can’t spread this out over a long period of time. But several of these can be done in the same day, such as Seattle Aquarium and the Harbor Tour; Pacific Science Center, Museum of Pop Culture or MoPOP & the Space Needle if you wanted a busy day/evening, and then the Woodland Park Zoo or spread them all out separately to get the most out of each attraction over those 9 days. This would be fun to do if you plan on staying close to the city for a few days & you can go back & forth between these attractions.
It is not a pass exactly, but more of a booklet of tickets/passes that you will use to get in to each attraction. The info you need for the attractions (address, times, etc) is printed on the back of the tickets, making it easy to find. One important thing to know about the booklet, is that you are not suppose to rip out your own tickets (let them do that for you at the attraction, or it may be considered void).
The other benefit of the CityPass is that it allows you to avoid most main ticket lines. This is very nice in the summertime, when the tourists & crowds can be much busier, especially at the Space Needle. Definitely give yourself more time at the Needle, though, as there are always lines to wait to get in there.
If you want to see all seven attractions on the list, choose Chuhily and MoPOP to use your pass tickets on. Then there are some extra discounts in the coupon booklet for the Woodland Park Zoo and the Pacific Science Center (and they are the two lowest cost venues, so this will let you get the most for your money).
