O novo sistema permite que os visitantes a Chicago para construir um bilhete personalizado que abrange o maior número de 26 atrações como quiserem ver, tudo por um preço com desconto em comparação com opções de venda de bilhetes padrão.

The new system features an online “configurator” where a customer makes his or her selections. Each selection is added to a running tally that shows the names of the attractions chosen, a dynamically updated price for the combined selections, and the savings compared to buying each ticket separately.

Once finished making their choices, the customer checks out online and a smart card is coded with their selected attractions and shipped to them. The customer then uses the smart card — called a “Custom Chicago Explorer Pass” — as their entry ticket to each of the attractions they had coded onto the card.

Each of the 26 Chicago-area attractions have smart card readers that allow them to accept the cards for admission. The program has been running for several months in a beta mode with several thousand visits already having been made using the new system.

“For the visitor coming to Chicago, being able to build your own custom pass to everything you want to see is compelling,” said Carey Randall, Director of Sales and Marketing at the John Hancock Observatory. “It’s a big change from how things have gone up until now. With all the pieces in place and running smoothly, we are excited to move forward with this new approach to ticketing and admissions.”
