Frequently Asked Questions

Is this just a New York discount card? Will I still need to buy tickets?

No. Passes include admission to each attraction - no need to pay anything at the gate. Some attractions may offer upgrades or special exhibits at an additional fee.

Do I need to choose my attractions in advance?

No - choose as you go. The pass is good for any combination of the number of attractions purchased.

My child is under 3 years old. Can I get them a New York City Explorer Pass?

Child passes are recommended for children ages 3-12. Many attractions offer free admission for younger children. Please consult the attraction website for more details.

How do I activate my pass?

Easy - simply visit your first attraction!

Is the pass valid all day?

Yes! Feel free to visit the attractions any time of the day, if they are open.

How much will I save?

Compare the price of the pass to the gate prices of the attractions to see how much you can save. Many customers save up to 50%. The New York City Explorer Pass gives you the flexibility to create your own itinerary and choose the attractions you want to visit, depending on your interests.

Can I visit an attraction more than once?

No. Your pass includes only one visit per attraction.

Do I need to make reservations to visit the attractions?

Attractions that require a reservation will display a symbol on the guidebook page. Some attractions require a credit card to hold a reservation. In these cases, your credit card will not be charged unless you do not show up for your reservation.  If you are interested in taking the Gossip Girl, NY TV and Movie Tour and Sex and the City Tour, you should pick up your tickets as soon as possible after arriving in the city as these tours require a reservation.

How do I use my New York City Explorer Pass to visit the Statue of Liberty?

Present your New York Explorer Pass at ‘Statue Cruises’ ticket counter inside Castle Clinton at Battery Park.

Once you have obtained your Ferry Ticket from Castle Clinton you must wait in the security line before boarding.

The Ferry requires airport-level security, so be prepared to wait. Allow at least 2 hours to visit one island and 4 hours to visit the Ellis & Liberty islands.

Your pass provides you access to the island only. Pedestal & crown access requires reservations as space is limited, and is not included with your pass.

What’s the catch?

There’s no catch. The New York City Explorer Pass has a partnership with all the participating attractions to make your visit to New York as memorable as possible, whilst helping you save time and money.

Can I share my pass with a friend or sell it?

No. The New York Explorer Pass is non-transferrable and may not be re-sold.

What happens if an attraction is closed or a tour is cancelled due to a weather (or other) problem?

Whilst we do our best to ensure that all attractions are available, things can sometimes happen that are out of our control. The great thing about a New York City Explorer Pass is that there are many attractions to choose from. If an attraction is closed, or cannot be visited for any reason, you can select a fun alternative from many choices in your guidebook!
