Tampa Bay Launches CityPass

See recent posts by Lissa Poirot

Tampa Bay is luring vacationers from Orlando following ticket price increases at Disney World and Universal Studios Resorts by launching its discounted CityPass. The pass provides entry to Busch Gardens theme park, the Florida Aquarium, the Lowry Park Zoo and the nearby Clearwater Aquarium for one low price of $119 per adult and $99 per child. In contrast, the Magic Kingdom and Universal one-day passes are now hovering near $100 for one-park admission.

The CityPass also allows entry into a choice of either the Museum of Science and Industry or the Chihuly collection in St. Petersburg, with the later choice also providing admission to the Morean Arts Center, also in St. Petersburg.

The CityPass is currently available online, with tickets available on site beginning May 20. The tickets are good for one-time entry, and provides a savings of nearly $70. While passes are on sale now, they will not be accepted at attractions until May 20.

CityPass tickets are also available for attractions in Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Houston, New York, Philadelphia, San Francisco, Seattle, Southern California and Toronto.
