Are you planning a trip to Seattle soon? Or maybe you live in Seattle, but you’re planning on a stay-cation for spring break or summer in your home town? If so, I want to let you know about CityPASS because it’s a great way to save money if you’re planning to visit a number of key area attractions!
Right now, you can pay $89 for an adult CityPASS to Seattle, or $69 for a child’s pass. The pass will get you into:
- Space Needle (2 visits!)
- Seattle Aquarium
- Argosy Cruises Harbor Tour
- Museum of Pop Culture (MoPOP) OR Woodland Park Zoo
- Chihuly Garden and Glass OR Pacific Science Center
If you were to buy tickets individually at each of these attractions, you’d pay $179.23 per adult and $120.77 per child – that works out to a savings of 43% – 50%!
The reason I’m telling you about this now is that the price of both the adult and child passes is increasing by $10 each as of March 1st, 2019. But the good news for you is that you can purchase at the lower price now for use clear through February 29th, 2020! (Please note: If you choose the print-at-home voucher option, you’ll need to exchange your vouchers within 6 months of purchase.)

There are a few things you should know about the CityPASS before purchasing:
- Your CityPASS tickets are good nine consecutive days from the first use. So you need to plan accordingly.
- I mentioned this above, but it’s worth repeating: if you choose the print-at-home option, you’ll only have six months to redeem your vouchers for a booklet.
- Included in your CityPASS are additional coupon savings, maps, and more!
I should also mention that CityPASS is available for more cities than just Seattle – currently you can buy a CityPASS for these other cities:
