Chicago CityPASS

Chicago CityPASS packs five of the Windy City’s must-see attractions into a prepaid ticket booklet that fits easily into your pocket and saves you a massive 50% off regular combined admission and includes skip-the-line at most attractions.

Experience the best of Chicago with CityPASS. You’ll get VIP admission to the most iconic attractions in the city, hand-picked and packaged into one convenient ticket booklet at a big savings. Because CityPASS is valid for 9 consecutive days starting with the first day of use, there’s no need to rush through each attraction. And skipping ticket lines means you’ll have more time to enjoy the Chicagoan experience—from the city’s famous landmarks and beautiful architecture to the amazing food and warm Midwestern hospitality. The Chicago CityPASS also includes helpful information such as insiders tips, a map, attraction details, transportation directions and money-saving coupons.
