City Pass is an excellent way to see the top attractions in Seattle, and save some time and money. City Pass allows you to see THE top attractions in Seattle over the course of nine days for up to 50% off the posted ticket price AND to skip the lines!
As of this writing, Seattle’s City Pass provides admission to the Space Needle (two trips to the top), Seattle Aquarium, Seattle Harbor Tours, Pacific Science Center, EMP, and either Woodland Park Zoo OR the Museum of Flight. This is a $126.25 ticketed value that costs only $69 for adults and $44 for kids 4-12. I will often tell guests that this is a money and time saver even if you don’t plan, or don’t have time, to visit all six attractions. Three attractions will have you just about breaking even on the costs, and a benefit of City Pass is that you don’t have to wait in line (except at your very first venue) so it is a great time saver.
My favorite attraction of the seven possibilities may very well be the most obvious. The Space Needle is the icon of Seattle, and the view from the top is understandably spectacular. This year, the Space Needle turns 50, and the city and Seattle Center have been celebrating. The saucer on the Needle has been painted its original Re-entry Orange, a new glass exhibit, zip line and more have been installed at the Seattle Center, and special events are planned throughout the year. The City Pass admission will get up the Needle twice in a 24 hour period. Go during the day to see the city, neighborhoods, mountains and water spread out before you. Return in the evening to catch the sunset, and the city come to sparkling life below your feet.
