Jennifer Maciejewski over at Atlanta on the Cheap offers the handy reminder that CityPass prices will go up in Atlanta (and Boston, San Francisco, Seattle, Philadelphia and Southern California) on March 1.
Prices are currently $69 for adults or $49 for kids. On March 1, they’ll jump $5 per book, which doesn’t seem like much till it’s spring break and you’re buying tickets for the entire family and a couple visitors. They’re good for nine days once you use a ticket to visit one of the attractions, but you don’t have to use them immediately. Physical ticket booklets are good for one year. An E-tickets must be exchanged for a physical booklet at one of the attractions within 90 days; you’ll have to redeem a ticket and start your nine days at that point, a CityPass customer service agent told me.
For those unfamiliar, Atlanta CityPass includes discounted admission to the Georgia Aquarium, World of Coca-Cola, Zoo Atlanta, Inside CNN tour, Fernbank Museum of Natural History or Atlanta Botanical Garden, High Museum of Art or Atlanta History Center. Each booklet comes with coupons, tips and info about each venue. It might not be worth the cost for one weekend, but can easily be the thrifty choice if you’ve got several days, energetic guests or a passel of kids who need to get out of the house.
CityPass can be purchased at any of the attractions that accept it, or bought online and shipped to you or printed as an E-Ticket that must be exchanged for a booklet.
