Earlier this summer my aunt and uncle come out for a visit with my cousin’s kids. They wanted to see as much of Seattle as possible. Exploring Seattle can get pretty pricey. To save a little cash they picked up 4 CityPASS booklets. This gave them access to the Space Needle, Seattle Aquarium, Woodland Park Zoo, Pacific Science Center, EMP Museum, Museum of Flight and Argosy Cruises Seattle Harbor Tour.
An adult pass cost my aunt and uncle $69 each and lasted 9 days from first date of issue. They were able to skip most ticket lines and just head right into an attraction, invaluable if you are trying to go up to the top of the Space Needle on a clear day.
Let’s do a little math. The Space Needle cost me, who did not have a CityPASS, $19 to go up. The aquarium is $19.95 and the zoo costs $17.75. Already I am up to almost $57 and I haven’t even gotten to the EMP or Pacific Science Center.
Obviously this is a pretty darn good deal.
My family was able to save a bundle and cram in a lot of sights in the limited amount of time they were in town.
