Worth it

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.

Getting the pass made visiting the atlanta attractions quick and easy. Just walkup to entrance and scan and off to the fun. It also saved us money instead of purchasing all of the tickets separately and having to make reservations to enter

It was a great weekend! The civil rights museum was the unexpected surprise of the weekend. Though heavy, it was absolutely amazing and powerful. We learned so much and feel so much more aware.

As first-time visitors to Atlanta, having the CityPASS was wonderful as we visited just about every venue it was good for. We loved the convenience of showing our pre-paid tickets, skipping the lines onsite - and of course, there was a significant cost savings.

So much fun!! Definitely recommend doing this over buying individual tickets. We only did the 3 main sites but still worth every penny.

Atlanta CityPASS
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.

Atlanta CityPASS
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.
