Is CityPass worth it for the "line skipping" privileges?

Jump to last reply

After reading about the very long lines that are possible, I am considering the CityPass for the "line skipping" but I am not sure if the "fine print" really means it saves time. Does anyone have experience with CityPass? We do plan to do 5 of the 6 of attractions (Circle Line cruise, Empire State, TOTR, MET, AMONH - not MoMA).
This is what it states on their website:
"Skip Most Ticket Lines - Often, CityPASS booklet holders can skip main ticket lines. Below, find details about how to enter each attraction as quickly as possible. Keep in mind that some lines, such as security checkpoints, are unavoidable. You may encounter a line when you exchange a CityPASS e-ticket for a CityPASS booklet at the first attraction you visit. "
These are the options below and you have 9 days to use it. The cost is $79 for adults and $59 for kids (plus $1 per ticket to get an e-ticket).
Empire State Building
The Metropolitan Museum of Art
American Museum of Natural History
MoMA (The Museum of Modern Art)
Statue of Liberty & Ellis Island OR Circle Line Cruise
Top of the Rock OR Guggenheim Museum

We weren 't considering a pass but would love to get some feedback. Thanks!
