Great way to save money and time. Must CityPass tickets allow you to
avoid the lines. My family and I loved the convenience of downloading
our tickets to our phone. No papers to carry. What a value! Thanks
I chose the CityPASS C3 since our kids are younger (under 12). It was a fantastic choice. Our tickets were on my phone, so no worries of losing tickets. You could select your venue on the day of and just show your pass. It was a great deal and I would recommend it to anyone and purchase another one again without any hesitation.

My boyfriend and I went on a redeye trip to NYC and since we were only there for a day, we got a C3 pass. It was perfect. It gave us options for attractions while being very affordable for the amount of time we
As we were only spending a few days in the city, the C3 was perfect. It
allowed us to pick the three places that we really wanted to see, and
not feel rushed. The ability to show the passes on mysmartphone for all
6 of us was extremely convenient, and we never had a problem using them
at the places we went to.

Purchased the C3 pass for myself and my son. It allowed us to customize the sites we wanted to see. The mobile option was great! Just showed the agents our smartphones and we were in.
We traveled to New York as a family of 6, and the C3 pass provide us with an affordable option to enjoy a few of NYC's awesome attractions. It was hassle-free, and each vendor was familiar with the pass. We did the mobile pass option...I highly recommend it to anyone, especially large groups.
Smartest thing I did for this trip. This was my second visit to New York and I'm still amazed at how much I got donein 2 and a half days. Great price and quick access to all the attractions. Definitely purchasing again for my next city!
It was the best way to see the most in our limited time. My two Danish friends traveling with me loved it all!
Easy to use and skipping the lives is awesome! Would recommend to anyone.
