One of the perks of being a travel writer is being able to flash a Press pass and bypass most line-ups at main entrances to museums, events and attractions. This is really handy if you want to visit several spots in one day or if you’re travelling with small children or people with mobility issues. If you’re not a travel writer but hate waiting in line ups, it’s worth considering a CityPASS
booklet of attraction tickets. Not only will you save money but you can enjoy VIP access at many locations. Here’s your chance to win a pair of CityPASS booklets to check it out for yourself.
Whisk past the line-ups at the Royal Ontario Museum
If you’re not familiar with CityPASS, here’s the scoop. Launched in 1997, it’s a bundle of prepaid admissions to a city’s top attractions in one ticket booklet. It’s available in 11 North American destinations: Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Houston, New York City, Philadelphia, San Francisco, Seattle, Southern California and Toronto. On May 20, 2014, the CityPASS program will expand to include Tampa Bay, Florida. (Note: Tampa Bay CityPASS is available for pre-purchase now, although the booklets can’t be used until May 20, 2014).
We used our CityPASS at Toronto’s CN Tower
Each CityPASS ticket booklet contains actual admission tickets to a destination’s top five or six attractions. The passes are valid for nine days from day of first use (14 days in southern California) which means you can take your time exploring. Expect to save up to 50% off the cost of regular box office tickets. In Toronto, the cost for a booklet is $60.89 USD plus tax — a saving of $45.27 per person — for 5 participating attractions including Casa Loma, the Royal Ontario Museum, Toronto Zoo, CN Tower and Ontario Science Centre.
