    The explorer pass allowed us access to each attraction. We did Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island, Top of the Rock, Empire State Building, The Centeral Park Zoo, and the Bistory musem. I would recommend. It was easy to use and we did all the things on our list.

    Got this pass for 2 attractions - Empire State Building & hop on hop off bus as it was cheaper to buy the pass than get the attractions separately. So glad we did, pass was easy to use, no issues with it being scanned etc. I would recommend this pass to anyone exploring NYC.

    What the pass did: 1) Allowed us to budget well in advance of our trip, 2) Gave us flex to visit what we wanted when we wanted (due to bad weather we did not bother to do TOTR and instead went to Madame Tussauds which we only decided on the day) 3) Gave peace of mind as this
