Excellent value if you have the time to visit all the attractions. Excellent user friendly redemption process at the attractions.

We purchased the city pass because it included all of the places we were planning to go to plus some. We didn't end up using all of the tickets but it still saved us money. And was a bonus that it had $20 admission to adventure island so we squeezed that into our vacation as well. Would definitely purchase again!
Tampa City pass is a great investment

We bought the Tampa City pass for our recent trip to Tampa. I purchased the voucher online once we landed. It is a great value, but definitely plan on extra time to get your city pass booklet at the first attraction. We waited at least a half an hour for the booklet. Need a better system!

I travelled to Tampa Bay/St. Pete/Clearwater for spring break of 2017, and visited all of the locations except Chihuly Collection and the Museum of Science and Industry, and I was disappointed because my boyfriend and I could not make it to those two places! The CityPASS is a GREAT value if you want to go to all attractions - in fact, I believe it is approximately the price that it is to get into Busch Gardens alone. Very pleased with the purchase, and will likely buy again when my family and I return!
The Atrocity that is the CityPass Tampa, FL

Do not waste your time or money on this dreadful excuse of a city pass. Last week my family (two adults three young kids) spent the week in Tampa, FL. To get — what we thought would be convenient — a CityPASS for the whole family was quite the expense. Why wouldn't we though? The bright promise of never ending family fun and the opportunity to explore the cities "best attractions" sounded like exactly what we needed. This mirage, however, was destroyed almost immediately.
Let's start from the top shall we? Busch Gardens... half of the attractions were closed... wooppe... we just drove all the way over here - three kids mind you - only to find out the most exciting thing we could do was watch the grass grow. Yay vacation time! After the excitement of that wore off it was of to the next "Outstanding Attraction." Who wants to go look at no fish? Not my family.. how about yours? Go ahead look up the Tampa Aquarium. After reading the hellacious reviews, and the thrill that was Busch Gardens, we decided to skip this adventure.
I am telling you now you are much better off just exploring the city on your own. Once we escaped the prison of CityPASS we were able to enjoy our vacation and relax. The CityPass is good if you have zero expectations. If you, however, like being crammed into tourist traps and being forced to pay for attractions that clearly aren't open (no hints as to which by the way.. cause why would they do that.. smh) than this is for you! Oh, and even if you buy it and half of the attractions are closed... good luck at getting your money back.
Welcome to Tampa

We visited Florida last week and purchased the Tampa Bay City Pass booklets prior to traveling. We were very excited to use them. They were easy and convenient when entering each park/attraction. We had several young kids with us and each of them are still talking about the great time we had. One child had his birthday while at Busch Gardens, so they gave him a special button to wear. Each worker that passed us said "Happy Birthday". He was so excited that everyone acknowledged his birthday. What a great trip! I would definitely buy this again!

For $100 a person you can see 5 different Tampa attractions. Just to visit Busch Gardens, its $105 a person for the day. Its not rocket science that this is a great deal!

I told everyone I work with and saw in tampa about the city pass. I will spend the same amount of money in 3 days in tampa as 1 day at Disney. My kids want to go back this summer.
Great value, loved the CityPASS for Tampa

We really enjoyed using CityPASS to sight see around Tampa. We had to skip the Clearwater Marine Aquarium due to time constraints, but we enjoyed Busch Gardens, Lowry Park Zoo, Florida Aquarium, and MOSI. We will definitely consider CityPASS for trips to other cities.
City Pass Tampa worth it

If you are sure you will go to Busch Gardens and at least one other attraction, this is very much worth it.
