The CityPASS was the best thing I have ever purchased for one of our vacations! It gave us so many things to do and at a very affordable price for a family of 5! I will purchase a CityPASS every time we go on vacation from now on!
The passes allowed us to glide easily between the attractions on a whistle stop tour of the best sights of Houston.
We were there for a baseball tournament and most of the attractions allowed us to keep the boys out of the heat before they played. We were able to use four or the five areas and we all had a great time! We paid for it by visiting just two attractions! Well worth it!
My husband and I purchased two passes and it was THE BEST investment ever. Our weekend getaway was jam packed with exciting things to do. We didn't have to worry about carrying enough money or standing in long lines.
City Pass ROCKS! I am a single parent to 3 awesome kiddos. This year I had family visit from CA and needed to show them the great state of Texas, but on a budget. I found the Houston CityPASS while doing a search and was I excited.
It was easy to buy online, easy to use and was so worth it. We took the family to Houston to hit up all the museums, zoo, and aquarium: the works. We had an amazing time and had no issues using our CityPASS. We bought it online and printed the confirmation. Easy.
This is really the best option you´ve got. I had family visiting for a week and we decided to give it a try...it was totally worth it! The options available are on point, plus you get amazing discounts and coupons...all of this for a considerably lower price than you would if you paid for each option individually. So go for it!
Getting a Houston CityPASS ticket booklet is simple. No matter how, where or when you buy, you’ll see the same huge savings and get the same price.
When you buy online, choose between receiving a voucher that you can print or having our customer care team lovingly pack and ship booklets to you. Easy as pie.
Vouchers couldn’t be easier to use – just bring your printed voucher to the first attraction you visit, and they’ll exchange it for your CityPASS ticket booklet. Just note that you may run into a line when exchanging your voucher during peak times. And, it’s always a good idea to bring your ID (attractions may ask for it).
If you’d like to have your booklets shipped to you, we ship to the US, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Portugal, Spain, Australia, New Zealand and UK. We can also ship directly to your hotel in the US and Canada.
You can also buy once you get to the city. It’s simple – just make the purchase at the first attraction you visit. The team there will know just what to do to get you in as quickly as possible. Piece of cake.
A CityPASS booklet you buy today expires February 28, 2018. A voucher you buy today must be exchanged for a booklet within 6 months of purchase.
Using Houston CityPASS is easy. Simply show up at the attractions with your booklets or voucher. The pros at each place will know just what to do.
Once you have your booklets, your party can split up and visit the attractions in any order you wish. And your Houston CityPASS booklets are good for nine (9) days, so there’s no need to rush through the attractions; you can see them at your own pace.
CityPASS perk alert: You’ll get to skip many ticket lines with CityPASS. Look at the tickets in the booklet for entry instructions at each attraction.
You’ll see there are several "option tickets" in the booklet that allow you to choose one or the other attraction. There’s no need to decide upfront which you want to see – choose when you get there. If you want to see both, many of our option ticket attractions offer admission discounts (see the coupons in the back of your ticket booklet).
The tickets in your booklet are actual admission tickets. You’ll want to leave those in place for the pros at the attractions to tear out. If tickets are removed, they’ll be considered invalid. Sorry, but rules are rules.
