While there are unlimited attractions you can visit, you can only visit each attraction once. So you can't come back later if you didn't have time to see everything at an attraction. Thoroughly enjoyed everything we did by using this pass! Kim Bagwell Tulsa, OK 8/25/22

Everything went great! We saw an incredible amount in the 4 days and the New York Pass had everything in its portfolio that interested us, with very few exceptions.

Everything went wonderfully. Sometimes you could directly pass the waiting people. You certainly do more than if you have to pay extra for all entrances.

Did far more than we would have done if we had paid for each attraction. The Circle Line evening cruise was amazing.

With this pass you get to see every must-see in NYC. It really saves you a lot of money.
