Q:

Do the passes let you directly in without waiting in that long long line? Tried to go there once and the wait was 3-4 hours outside in the cold before even getting to the doors, where there was more waiting inside... gave up after freezing for an hour.

A:

Hi J.P. - Thank you for your inquiry. The purchase of the Total Experience Pass Groupon deal does allow you to skip the general line. You will need to present your Groupon at the Will Call booth. Please note that sometimes there may be a short line at Will Call.

Q:

are all exhibits handicapped accessible?

joanne  asked on  Oct 5, 2013

A:

Hi Joanne, thank you for your question. We believe there should be no boundaires to the Shedd experience. The accessible entrance is located at ground level on the southwest side of the aquarium. Wheelchairs are available for checkout on a first-come, first-served basis with appropriate identification and a credit card. Also, The small parking lot between Shedd and the Field Museum offers reserved handicapped parking, as does the Soldier Field north garage. Shedd's bus turnaround, on the south side of the aquarium, is a convenient drop-off point, close to the accessible entrance, for those traveling with a driver.

Q:

Hi there. I was just wondering and need to clarify. Sorry in advance if you already answered this question. I have 4 of us in our group. 2 adults and 2 kids ages 8 and 14. If I purchase 2 of the deals for 2 people, will that work. Can I use 2 groupons for 1 visit? I see that the 4 for 80 is sold out. Please advise. Thanks so much.

Rachel R.  asked on  Oct 5, 2013

A:

Hi Rachel, thank you for your question. The four person option is still available for purchase. I advise you to purchase that option.

Q:

Hello, Im still confused about the admission with this pass. It says one voucher per visit, so does that mean if I were to bring someone, only I would get in, and they would still have to pay?

Jasmine C.  asked on  Oct 5, 2013

A:

Hi Jasmine, thank you for your question. If you buy the four pass, all four of you must come together and use the voucher on the same day. If you buy the 2 person, both of you come in together using just the one voucher. Let us know if you have any other questions.

Q:

Q:

Hi, I want to purchase for 2 adults and 6-year old boy. Do I have to but 2 ?

Seung-Hyun H.  asked on  Oct 5, 2013

A:

Hi Seung-Hyun, thank you for your question. You will need to purchase 2 adult ticket and a child's at the door or purchase the four pack. Children's tickets above the age of three are $25.95 M-F and $28.95 on the weekend at the Shedd doors. Therefore, if you buy the 2 person option $40 + 28.95 child ticket, your total will be $68.95. Normally 2 children and an adult would cost $86.85. If you buy the four person option for $80, your child could bring a friend. Let us know if you have any other questions.
