CityPass : Worth The Price Of Admission!



Have you heard of CityPass?  Toronto CityPass is a booklet of admission tickets to five must-see tourist attractions in Toronto. You’ll save 45% compared to combined regular box office prices, but it’s so much more!

See The Best & SAVE!! Not only do you save 45% on tickets, but CityPass Toronto gives you access to the CN Tower Tower Experience, Royal Ontario Museum, Casa Loma, the Toronto Zoo, and the Ontario Science Centre.  As I was travelling to Toronto and had limited time, the Toronto CityPass quickly helped me to identify five of Toronto’s must see places.

Skip the Ticket Lines! Save time with easy access at most attractions. Once you have your CityPASS booklet, skip the ticket line and head straight for the entrance.  When you are visiting a city for the first time, or even the third or fourth, one thing you don’t want to waste is time!  Having the CityPass is a huge time saver!

Take Your Time:  CityPASS booklets are valid for nine consecutive days beginning the day of first use. Visit the attractions in any order you wish.  Not just valid for a weekend, or a day, but NINE consecutive days, that’s two weekends!

We had our CityPass Booklets delivered ahead of time so there would be no time wasted waiting in lines.  Brilliant. Once the booklets were in our hands we created our plan of attack, setting our priorities for which attractions in this massive city were most important to us.  We only had two days in the city and wanted to make the very most of it.

Our first stop.  Casa Loma.  (and I have to tell you it was so much more than I expected it to be!)


As soon as we walked into Casa Loma our booklets were then “activated” from then on we had nine days to hit up the other four attractions in the city.

We were stunned by the beauty of this castle frozen in time in the heart of the city.  Casa Loma provided a glimpse into times gone by, and even impressed my girls with it’s very own Hollywood walk of fame. Many movies have been filmed in this gorgeous location.  My only complaint, strollers were not allowed in the elevator making the second floor nearly impossible for our SassyNephew to access.  Casa Loma will take you at least two hours to get through. 

Next on our list to explore with our City Pass, the CN Tower!


When we arrived at the CN Tower we were able to skip the lines and head straight into the ticket holders line.  These tickets were proving to be be great time savers! The CN Tower is a must see while in Toronto with your family.  TorontoCNTower

On our second day in Toronto we decided to visit The Ontario Science Centre. 


Once again ticket holders were allowed to skip ahead and just enter!  Feeling very VIP!  We enjoyed the Ontario Science Centre and could have easily spent an entire day there.  Where else can you find a tree trunk taller than your daughter?

Can you see her?

After two solid days of touring, shopping, subway riding, picture taking and eating our way around the city our crew was exhausted!  It was time to pack up our car and head back to the Suburbs. The beautiful thing, a brand new adventure awaits us again anytime in the next 7 days!  Perhaps we will take the train back into the city to go to the ROM, or load up for another road trip and head to the Toronto Zoo, but even if we don’t I know we got our time and our monies worth from the Toronto CityPass!

    that’s very good to know! For some reason I thought it was only a pass for the subway & TTC

  2. We did CityPass in NYC the other year and London last year. It was worth it there too, so we would definitely do it in other cities. I think what helped the most is that we looked at the list of attractions before we signed up and came up with an itinerary of the things we wanted to see with it.

  3. We are thinking of heading to Toronto for a visit. thanks for the great info. My fave is about skipping the line ups

  4. Chandra Christine O'Connor says:

    probably saves money too if you add up what the individual cost would be without the booklet.

  5. Judy Cowan says:

    Great to know for the next time we visit the Toronto area. Thanks for the information 🙂

  6. I have enjoyed several TO attractions in the past using CityPass. Discounts are certainly worthwhile.

  7. Darlene Schuller says:

    Well now! This is the first I’ve heard of this… I would’ve loved to get one for my college girl!!

  16. Victoria Ess says:

  18. I take visitors to Toronto all the time! I can’t believe I’ve never thought to look into CityPass!

  19. Good to know! We’ve been thinking about taking the kids to TO zoo and I’ve wanted to see Casa Loma forever… Maybe when the kids are a bit older though.

  23. This may be something to look into for our next vacation.

  24. this would be great for when one visits Toronto

  25. Melinda L. says:

    I wish I had known about this pass when I took my friends exploring around Toronto. Oh well next time!

  26. Elizabeth Matthiesen says:

    I think that a city pass is a great idea cutting costs of visiting places and not having to wait in long line-ups. The Casa Loma looks fantastic, I’d love to see that.
