Worth it!
I'm really glad we got the Citypass! Not only did it save us money it got us out to see more than we would have if we paid for the attractions individually.

Was great and worth the pass. Will do it again.
Too many to choose one. But if I had to choose I would say Bush Gardens and the sunset boat tour. GREAT TIME
