Frequently Asked Questions


  • What is the New York Pass and when is it activated?

    The New York Pass looks like a credit card, and provides free entry into over 90 of New York City’s top attractions as well as numerous discounts at restaurants and retailers. For a complete list of attractions that you have access to with the New York Pass, click the “New York Attractions” tab.

    The pass will activate once you visit your first attraction. Please note that the Big Bus Hop-On Hop-Off tour is also considered an attraction. Therefore, if you collect your bus ticket and have your pass scanned, then your New York Pass will be active from that point.
    Your New York Pass will operate on consecutive calendar days so each day will end at Midnight.

    You have the option of selecting the pass for 1, 2, 3, 5, 7 and 10 days. There is no limit to how many attractions you are able to visit with the pass, regardless of duration. When you purchase the Pass you will receive a guidebook that lists all of our attractions, their contact information, and all the benefits you will receive.

  • Is there a limit to how many attractions I can visit in one day?

    With the New York Pass there is absolutely no limit to how many attractions you visit in one day. You're welcome to use your pass for entry at as many attractions as you can possibly fit into your day.

    Please be aware that you are not able to re-visit attractions with the pass. Once your pass has been swiped at an attraction, it will not work for allowing you into that same attraction the next time.
    For example, if you go to the Empire State Building with your New York Pass and have it scanned, you cannot return to ESB and expect to use your New York Pass. You will be required to pay the general admission fee.

  • Can I visit the same attraction more than once?

    You can visit each attraction just once with the New York Pass. However you can visit as many attractions as you want - even more with the time saved with fast track entry.

    The Big Bus Hop-On Hop-Off Bus Tour can be used for the entire duration of your pass.

  • What languages is the guidebook written in?

    The New York Pass guidebook is conveniently offered in the following languages: English, Dutch, French, German, Italian, Mandarin, Portuguese and Spanish.

    You will receive a guidebook with your passes and will have the option of selecting the language.

  • Are the 2-day, 3-day, 5-day, 7-day and 10-day Passes for consecutive days?

    Your New York Pass is to be used on consecutive calendar days. The pass will become activated once you visit your first attraction and that day will conclude at midnight as the pass goes into its second day of use and so on.

    For example, if you activate your 3-day pass on Monday, it will be active for Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. The pass will conclude at midnight.

  • What if I lose my New York Pass?

    When you receive your New York Pass, you should immediately sign the back of the card and note the card’s I.D. number on a separate piece of paper for safekeeping. If you do end up losing or misplacing your New York Pass, you can stop by one of our collection locations where our staff will be able to hotlist your pass and issue you a new one. All that you will need to present is your order reference number and the number of the pass that was lost. Try to take a picture of your passes once you receive them.

    Please be sure to put the card in a safe place upon receipt.

  • Can I share my New York Pass with a friend?

    If you use your card at an attraction and attempt to pass that same card to your friend to use, the New York Pass reader will reject your second attempt and admission will not be granted. This is because the New York Pass can only be swiped at each attraction one time.

    However, if you are planning to purchase the pass in your name and give it to a friend for them to collect and use in New York, then you will need to contact the New York Pass team so that they can place your friend's name on the order for collection.

  • How old do you have to be for a Child Pass?

    Child passes are reserved for children between the ages of 3 and 12 years old. Children who are 2 years old and younger will not need to have a New York Pass purchased for them. Anyone 13 and older will need to purchase an adult pass.

  • I have a Promotional Code for the Pass, how can I use it?

    Once you have arrived at the "Buy Now" page for the New York Pass, you can scroll to toward the bottom of the page and enter your promotional code. If the code that you have entered is valid, you will see the discount reflected on the price of your order.

    Please keep in mind that your promo code discount cannot be stacked onto an existing online sale.

  • What is Fast Track Entry?

    Fast Track Entry is an expedited line for New York Pass holders to enter attractions. You can join this shorter Fast Track line at several attractions offered with the New York Pass. 
    Fast Track Entry allows you to get into each attraction quicker and saves you time in the day to visit more attractions.

  • Do I have to make reservations for Attractions?

    Reservations are not required at most of the attractions that are associated with the New York Pass (i.e.: Circle Line Sightseeing cruise, Statue of Liberty, Empire State Building, all major museums, etc). If you are looking to do one of the Behind the Scenes Tours you can contact the tour to inquire if an advance reservation is possible, or necessary. We do encourage customers to check availability for attractions they wish to visit. If an attraction recommends advance reservations, you can pre-book your tour with the pass number or order reference number. This will not activate your Pass.

  • Will I get access to the Crown of Statue of Liberty with the Pass?

    The New York Pass grants you a free round-trip ferry ticket to visit the Statue of Liberty as well as Ellis Island. With your pass you will also receive access to the Immigration Museum . You will not need to make any reservations in order to take the ferry from Battery Park or to visit the island.

    Due to the extensive waiting list for the crown of the Statue, the New York Pass cannot grant you access to that level. If you are still interested in crown access, you will have to reserve a ticket directly through the Statue of Liberty.

  • Does New York Pass offer discounts to Metro North riders?

    Yes, discounted 1 and 2 day New York Passes can be purchased when purchasing a Metro North Ticket to Grand Central Terminal. Visit for more information.
