Such a great deal!
The citypass made our Chicago visit so much better! We booked times for Shedd and Museum of science and industry beforehand and walked right in for both with a bonus 4d experience at Shedd! We walked past the line at the Art institute and were in the expedited line at skydeck ( thank goodness, that line was a mess) We even got a discount in the museum shop! I would recommend this completely!

A great value

We purchased the 5 attraction pass and utilized the advance reservation system to make the most of our four days in Chicago. The pass allows purchaser to select timed entry on specific dates, expediting entry to several popular tourist attractions. Purchasers have the ability to choose from several major attractions while saving on individual entry fees.

Not a "Pass"
Jul 2021 • Family
The voucher system means you only have a voucher, not a reservation or tickets. The Shedd ended up being a fiasco. I'd have paid the difference just to be able to be in the regular line. Definitely not worth the money. Pay for the regular tickets. It's easier and less confusing.

I'm sorry that you encountered a long wait. While your reservation time is your designated entry time, Shedd entry procedures are a bit different than other attractions, because CityPASS guests need to book their 4-D experience, so there may be a line. I apologize for the inconvenience and frustration.

An absolute must for tourists in Chicago
Jul 2021
This is a fantastic product, saving us both money and time, especially during this period when reservations are required and capacity is limited for some attractions.

Skydeck at Willis Tower - Easy online reservation. Got expedited access to get up to the top quickly plus expedited access to The Ledge, saving a lot of time.

Shedd Aquarium - Easy to make reservation online. Skipped most of the entry line. Pass included ticket to one 4D film.

Art Institute of Chicago - Skipped ticket sales line and got in 10 minutes early. Did not need reservations.

Field Museum - Did not need to make reservations, entered quickly, pass included all special exhibitions and the 3D film.

MSI Chicago - Easy to make a reservation online. We went in the afternoon when there was no entry line. Had to pay extra for special exhibition.

I would estimate that the CityPass save us $100 per person plus about two hours of time. Since we only had a couple of days in Chicago, this was a great bonus.

I guess we were lucky. It worked perfectly for my wife and I. We did have to make reservations for 360 and the Aquarium. The Planetarium was closed for upgrades. Worked like a charm with reservations and all lines were extremely short.

Horrible experience
May 2021 • Friends
It was horrible , it doesn’t matter if you reserved a time or not they don’t give a damm thing about it and also don’t tell you some places has city pass lines , I was with a reservation for the 360 for 1:30 we got up to see at 4:00 it’s useless if you re trying to save time or they are all to full to even be able to change a time later if you get stuck like I did .

I'm sorry you didn't have a good experience. Many attractions now require reservations and are still working hard to manage capacities. Even with a reservation, there still may be a wait time to enter at some attractions.

So worth it! Only downside is this was not accepted at certain places so we had to wait in the general, long lines. It makes sense to invest In this pass especially if you intend to visit all the hot spots. Highly recommend, easy to use and great customer service

Timing
Sep 2020 • Friends
Don’t expect the perks. While attending some of these attractions that told us that we needed to have a reservation time. Something that CityPASS did not tell us about in any form. This caused us to wait in a forever long line, and then get turned away because we didn’t have a “time” picked out. Especially with the SKYDECK, something that we really wanted to do. They said that they were sold out and could come back at 9pm but we would have to give up our CITYPASS express perks for the experience, if we really wanted to. 9pm was really inconvient, but if we knew we should’ve reserved a time ahead we would’ve done that and that would’ve saved us time and parking money as well. Disappointed.
