Worth it
Tressia_M, Apr 2022
Atlanta CityPASS
So far we have been to Coca Cola, Fernbank Museum of Natural History and the Georgia Aquarium. Tomorrow is the Zoo and Civil Rights Museum. Using the pass is easy but plan your trips wisely. Some of the places have specific open days and varying hours since Covid.

We did the aquarium, Coke, zoo and Civil Rights Museum. Hands down the aquarium was the best - it's so well done. I loved the ease of the passes. No waiting in (another) line when we got to each place - just scan and go.

We used the City pass to visit the Aquarium and the Coke museum. We were also going to go to the zoo but with other family stuff we didn’t make it. Would definitely do this again if we didn’t have other stuff to do. I think the price is amazing and well worth it.

I was very surprised and happy that the 3 attractions were all located in the same area. We started with the World of Coca-Cola, very interesting and fun. Then to the Civil Rights Museum. Very educational, brought back lots of memories and brought some tears. We went to the Aquarium the next day, very well done. The Atlanta City Pass is well worth investing in. Loved no standing in lines.

Very easy to use at each attraction. You can just scan the barcode like a regular ticket. No need to make reservations. Very good deal.

I highly recommend doing the city pass. Well worth it all. Looking forward to using it again. The only thing I would change is to do it during the week not the weekend

Worth Every Penny!

I am so glad that I purchased the Atlanta City Pass and it was worth the price. All the places that we visited were almost sold out and the pass guaranteed our spot so I highly recommend it! I love that we had up to 9 days to use it starting from the day that you first use it. There were no issues I had the passes on my phone and the people at the ticket booth scanned it and we were on our way. I am so glad that I was able to purchase those tickets but they were selling fast. I highly recommend to purchase the Atlanta City Pass especially if you're not from the area because it's one less thing you have to worry about other than where to eat, lol. My family and I will definitely use this again in the future.

We went to Zoo Atlanta first, and it was an easy process. They scanned my bar codes on my phone, and that was it.

The aquarium and coke museum were amazing. I thoroughly enjoyed both. The Dolphin shows and the sea lion show were also amazing in the aquarium.
