Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best decision EVER! I bought City Passes for our Spring Break trip to Tampa and I am SO GLAD I did!!! It was easy, convenient and extremely cost effective. My husband, son and I had a ball and we got to see all the main attractions. Mobile QR codes made using the passes a breeze. This was the best decision ever!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome way to go I was looking at Busch Gardens Tampa to take my Grands for Spring Break and the CityPass came up and I viewed it. I was skeptical about it. So my daughter got on Facebook and asked people their rating about it and ALL were great. So, I took a chance and ordered. First stop was Tampa Zoo. We enjoyed it. Second stop the next day was Busch Gardens it was great. The next day was the Clearwater Aquarium they also love it. City Pass is the way to go. We had a few more but we ran out of time. Thanks for a Greay Spring Break for the Grands.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Worth ITTTTT! I bought 5 passes for my Tampa trip and it was well worth it. No standing in line at ticket counters, no wondering what to do next. We checked off one event after the other and was able to maximize our trip because of it. It really takes the guess work out of what to do and what it will cost to do it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple Bought CityPASS for our trip to Tampa because we wanted to go to Busch Gardens and the price of the CityPASS was about the same as a ticket to Busch Gardens plus we got to do a bunch of other things for the price we would have paid for one thing. Email came quickly and it was easy to use. An added bonus was we didn’t have to wait in line to buy tickets when we went places.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value! My wife and I decided to go on a family vacation and take our 4 year old daughter to the Lowry Park Zoo, Florida Aquarium, and Busch Gardens. We tried out the CityPass for the first time and absolutely loved it. The tickets were easy to purchase and use at each attraction. We saved a lot of money by purchasing the CityPass, even though we did not use all five tickets. This was an excellent deal and we will definitely will purchase again! We also purchased the kids CityPass, but realized we had a Preschool pass for our child. CityPass refunded the kids portion without any questions.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Use of My Money Buying the City Pass was the best decision I made while visiting Tampa. I go there to visit my kids and grandkids. I never do the activities because entrances are SOOOO EXPENSIVE. This trip, I discovered the city pass and was able to get into 5 attractions for practically the price it would have cost me to get into Busch Gardens alone. My kids and I were very satisfied with our purchase and the attractions that are part of this pass. Totally worth the money.
