What is the New York Pass?

New York PassThe New York Pass is a small card that allows you to visit an unlimited amount of attractions for the amount of days you choose. For a length of 1, 2, 3, 5, 7 or 10 days you will have unlimited access to all of the 80+ attractions that are included. Financially this makes sense if you plan to visit 3 or more attractions per day. To view all of the included attractions, tours and cruises you can skip to our handy table below. On top of saving up to  50%  on regular ticket prices, this pass will save you serious times as it includes a fast track option for many of the included attractions. Many special deals for broadway shows are also included!

IMPORTANT: Please note that the New York Pass runs on a 24-hour clock. This means that if you view your first attraction late in the day, you have wasted the morning to view attractions as at 12:00 pm your pass will reset to day 2. It is therefore recommended to begin first thing in the morning to get the most out of your pass.
