Houston is the latest CityPASS® destination to launch a convenient mobile ticket option for travelers seeking discounted admission to the city's top attractions.
Mobile tickets are delivered via email and can be easily saved to the buyer's mobile device or Apple Wallet. CityPASS, which has specialized in bundling admission to North America's marquee attractions for more than 20 years, now offers user-friendly mobile tickets for 12 of its 14 partner destinations: Atlanta, Chicago, Dallas, Denver, Houston, New York City, Orlando, Philadelphia, Seattle, Southern California, Tampa Bay and Toronto.
In addition to providing Houston CityPASS buyers with an on-the-go option (tickets can be purchased on the steps of an attraction and presented for entry just moments later), mobile tickets are delivered in the language the buyer selected when they first visited the CityPASS website. For international travelers, it is especially accommodating to have an end-to-end translated experience in the language of their choosing (language options include Chinese, English, French, German, Italian, Portuguese and Spanish).
The Houston CityPASS program, which saves travelers 47 percent off combined admission to five major attractions, includes prepaid entry to Space Center Houston (photo above), Downtown Aquarium, Houston Museum of Natural Science, a choice between the Houston Zoo or the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston; and a choice between a Kemah Boardwalk All-day Ride Pass or the Children's Museum of Houston. The included tickets are valid over a period of nine consecutive days, beginning with the first day of use. 2019 Houston CityPASS prices: $62 for adults; $52 for children 3-11.
Mobile tickets work in the same manner as printed CityPASS ticket booklets, although, instead of scanning a printed ticket for entry, attractions will scan the visitor's mobile device.
