Does using CityPass mean I never wait in lines?
You'll be happy to know you'll avoid most long lines of people waiting to buy their tickets. Many attractions display the CityPass logo at a membership desk or separate entrance, giving CityPass ticket holders immediate admission. Look at the bottom left corner of each ticket to learn where to take your CityPass. Common sense and simple courtesy are good to have if there are other CityPass ticket holders in front of you at an attraction, or if there are other procedures. Cruises, for example, have boarding protocols. At the Empire State Building, you'll breeze past the main ticket lines, then wait with everyone else to step into an elevator for the ride to the observatory level. Some museums and theme parks have a single gate, but streamline their process so any delay is relatively painless. Keep your sunny side up on the rare occasions you may have to wait a bit.
Are special exhibits or exhibitions included in my CityPass admission?
It varies. Read the attraction information on the CityPass ticket, or contact the attraction directly to verify fees to upgrade or purchase admission to a special or temporary exhibit.
What if I want to substitute or subtract an attraction?
The beauty of each CityPass booklet is that you are purchasing a collection of carefully selected attraction tickets, designed to appeal to an inquisitive traveler. Those who have more narrowly defined interests may want to map their own attraction list, and use CityPass on another occasion. Keep in mind that you may still save money using CityPass even if you are unable to use all the tickets included.
What if my CityPass is lost or stolen?
Think of a CityPass booklet like cash in your pocket. Because there is no name or personal identification on a CityPass booklet, if your booklet is lost or stolen, no refund or replacement is available.
Rates do not include hotel pick up. Please reserve online, or call us toll-free at 888-881-3284.
