Which New York Attraction Pass is for Me?


Here are some things to consider when choosing which NYC Attraction Pass is best for you...


What do I want to see in New York?

There’s so much to do in the city that never sleeps, so it’s important to start planning before you go. When you think of New York City, the Empire State Building, the Top of the Rock and the Statue of Liberty are just a few of the world-famous landmarks that instantly come to mind. If you’ve never been to New York before, you’re sure to want to pay these a visit to get a real taste of the city. If it’s not your first visit, you may want to try something a bit different. Why not discover stunning artwork at the museums, go behind-the-scenes at the iconic Radio City Music Hall, or enjoy a traditional horse and carriage ride around Central Park?

Once you’ve decided which attractions you simply have to see, you’ll be one step closer to finding the pass that’s right for you. The best way to choose, is by putting the attractions in priority order of what you’d most like to see, and then using our infographic to see which pass includes the majority (or hopefully all!) of them.   


How much time do I have to spend in New York?

Another important factor to consider, when choosing your Attraction Pass, is how much time you have to spend in the city. There’s so much to see and do, that it can be tempting to try and pack everything you want to do into a few days. While this can be done, it’s best to be realistic about what you can fit in. To really make the most of your visit, try to get a balance between visiting the awe-inspiring attractions, without feeling rushed. This way, you can really appreciate what this one-of-a-kind city has to offer.

Each of the passes include skip-the-line-entry for most of the attractions featured, meaning you can spend less time waiting in the queues, and more time making unforgettable memories. Choose which pass is most suitable based on the duration of your trip, with each pass valid for a different number of days, ranging from 2 days right up to 30!
