This event was fun! Myself and 3 friends (all over 21 years old of course) had a blast becoming pirates and learning swashbuckling techniques, as well as playing small games of shenanigans. Being loud and rowdy was encouraged! The actors and props were hilarious, and everyone's first drink was free! We got there around 7pm and we're done around 830pm. (But you're allowed to come and go anytime between the hours of 6pm and 9pm).

We chose the Constitution Museum, zoo, and the Franklin Institute with our pass. All three were worth the trip with we 2 parents and 2 teens. The museum was very close to the Liberty Bell (free) and Independence Hall tour ($1 each), so these three tours and a stop for lunch at Bourse Hall made for a perfect day. We chose to do the zoo and FI on separate days to limit all the walking. Perfect way to spread out 3 days.

Best deal out there. I stumbled on Go City and could not be happier. We saw so many attractions for what it would have cost to see two or three. It was super easy, I just showed the QR code on my phone at each attraction. Super easy, great value!

The amount of history learned by the heroes of the Navy is invaluable.

It was easy to use, just present the pass and enjoy.
