Houston CityPASS
4.6 (3660)
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!
CityPASS was a vacation life saver!!
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.
Best Bang For Your Buck.
CityPASS 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.
Great experience
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.
The BEST option for having fun around Houston
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!
Houston CityPASS is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 3660.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceeded my Expectations Great pass, no issues whatsoever on any of the attractions, we did Nasa, Museum of Natural Science, Kama Boardwalk, Downtown Aquarium, and Zoo. We hardly encountered any lines entering, and everything was well organized, sanitized, social distancing. We loved it and are planning on another trip in the near future.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Pass to the Fun! We have been in Houston for over 12 yrs and this was the first time to buy the City Pass. Well worth the money and Time to get into the Parks and Museums! Show your pass on the phone app and walk right in! Its very easy to buy and simple to use. The cost is great for 6 adventures. Bought 3 pass... and before we did that, I went to the museum with my Adult son... We spent over 35 for each of us, just at the museum and I had a coupon! So don't go to the Parks before you check out the Houston City Pass, Or you could end up Spending More of you Money! (*Now if they could do something for the restaurants* that would make it a full package.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Every city should have this! I bought City Pass for a trip visiting a family member. She worked during the day so I was able to keep myself very entertained. I was able to visit every place on the City Pass and really experience Houston. NASA and the Museum of Natural Sciences were my favorite! Every city should have something like City Pass. It really encourages people to get out and see a new place while not spending hundreds of dollars.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easiest, Cheapest, Fastest Stress Free Fun! Our family 4 adults ( 1 "adult" was a 12 year old). Went to Houston for Spring Break 2019 and I did the math on each individual ticket price for the things listed on the City Pass activities included and we end up saving $160 dollars doing the City Passes vs pay individually on the websites of each activity. With that savings we got to even do to the beach and waterpark without feeling like we over spent. The transaction was flawless we go to the hotel the next morning using my phone while enjoying breakfast I bought the passes instantly I was emailed a barcode went to our first attraction walked right up the the window they scanned it explained how it work and gave us our booklets for the week to use...I love how we can pick and choose where and when to go as long as we did it within that 9 day window. The only thing I disliked was keeping up with the booklets as I wish it was just a barcode on the phone we can scan but other than that it was fun, easy, and even took advantage of the added discounts on upgrades and $5 off in gift shop shopping! Will definitely purchase again! Need more cities to join!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Value The City Pass is of great value especially when you are planning on visiting multiple attractions. It’s easy to redeem and a lot of times even you can receive additional discounts at the attractions when you have the booklet. I would definitely purchase this again

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best bang for the buck The Houston city pass is the best bang for the buck. You would spend way more trying to pay for each attraction separately.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Went to 5 places available Was so flexible! Went to so many places in 3 days 2 nights. I didn’t have to decide until we were there which ones and what order. Never would have been to so many places in a single trip without the city pass.
