Review: Seattle CityPASS

For the past 27 years, last year was the first time I traveled solo in a foreign country. It was exhilarating and a bit terrifying, too. Thanks to my eagerness to pursue my travel goals, I had overcome that fear.


Travel is my passion and because of that, I often research about my travel destination before I go. I searched for the top attractions in Seattle and I bumped on the thread about CityPASS. I checked the website and the rest was history.

» Seattle CityPass «

Seattle CityPASS is a sightseeing pass service that is a great way to experience the city by spending less.

» Admission «

As of 2019, the admission price for adult was $99 inclusive of tax and $1 for processing fee.



Update as of 2020, the admission price for adult ages 13+ is $108 inclusive of tax and $1 for processing fee.

» Inclusions «

The pass includes 7 attractions, which you can enjoy within the 9-day period including the first day of use.

CityPASS Admission includes:

  • Space Needle
  • Seattle Aquarium 
  • Argosy Cruises Harbour Tour 
  • Museum of Pop Culture (MoPOP) - OR - Woodland Park Zoo 
  • Chihuly Garden and Glass - OR - Pacific Science Center 

Each CityPASS ticket is valid for one-time admission to the attractions included at the time of purchase. For the Space Needle, you can go there twice within the 24-hour period: one-time in the day and one-time in the night.

I went to all the places mentioned above except for the Woodland Park Zoo and the Pacific Science Center. I chose the Museum of Pop Culture and Chihuly Garden and Glass.

I will share my experiences on my next blog post.

» How It Works? «

Book online and receive the tickets to be delivered in your email address or to be shipped as printed booklets (additional fees may apply).


Visit the attractions based on your preference in any order.

Simply present either your mobile tickets or your printed tickets for entry. Don't forget to present a valid ID, as attractions may ask for it.


» Benefits «

Because this pass is bundled with several attractions, I saved a lot of time and money. It is perfect for first time visitors like me.

You can save as much as $94.45 if you visit the following attractions. It's very economical, right?
