AWESOME!!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 experienceIt 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 HoustonThis 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 out of 5 by 3994.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Monayallo from Worth it! First time in Houston from Dallas! This city pass took the stress away from planning activities with my kiddos. The only thing I’d like to see is a route map. So for instance, it’s easy to see that Kemah boardwalk and the NASA space center are all within a good distance. The same with the museums. But all in all, we enjoyed our trip!

Rated 5 out of 5 by NitaLovesToTravel from Houston was Amazing, thanks to City Pass! I brought the city pass for Houston for myself and my two kids (age 4&9). We had a blast. I didn’t think I would enjoy the space center. However, that was my favorite place to visit. My kids really enjoyed the Aquarium & Kemah Boardwalk. We went throughout the week. So we were able to enjoy these attractions without the big crowds…

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bigswinger69 from Super easy! I’m very happy that I got the city pass for Houston, the attractions were great and it was so easy to get scanned and into everything we wanted to see! NASA was all general admission so if you come down here and do that, it’s worth the price of the pass. No need to upgrade for anything there, also do not upgrade the aquarium, the only add on is the outside kid rides. We had an amazing time at the Museum of science and industry, the body exhibit was extra but there’s plenty to see. Had a great trip and the city pass helped to make that happen! Highly suggested!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Helen from Highly recommend The CityPass saved us not only money but time. We did not need to line up to purchase tickets as we were able to just show our passes at the entry point. Further, we ended up going to more attractions as the pass allowed entries to more attractions than we had initially intended to attend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Travellovers-IN from Good deal! We bought the CityPASS to tour some of the top sites to visit in Downtown Houston. We knew we wouldn't make it to every attraction but we felt we got our money’s worth. We went to the Downtown Aquarium, Johnson Space Center, and the Zoo. We were there in late February so a lot of things at Kemah Boardwalk were closed for the season, and ran out of time to go to the Museum of Natural History. The weather wasn't cooperative but we really enjoyed all the locations we visited. The online tickets were easy to use, and since we didn’t have children with us it covered the things were wanting to see, and some extras can be paid for separately at the aquarium and the zoo. We had reservations to make for the space center, and a time window for the aquarium, but went to the zoo without a plan. We will be visiting again next year and will buy it again to visit the locations we missed. It’s worth it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bube from Absolutely Unforgettable! I bought a CityPASS when I got to Houston, Texas and I was so happy I did, I was planning to stay in Houston for a week plus I was thinking of a way to explore the city before I go back to my country and I came across the CityPASS. That encounter was the best thing that ever happened to me. I visited the Downtown Aquarium, Space Center Houston, and the Children's Museum of Houston and I had the best experience, not having to wait in line for tickets and having to explore more for less, this was really a wonderful experience for me. Thank you, CityPASS!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by TravelingMary 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.
