This pass allows you to see Everything! Except the summit! It includes all the standard level experiences (so for example not the highest floors of the skyscrapers which even without a pass have a supplement) I recommend only to check days, times, closures! You can do it even before purchasing! Also remember that with the first purchase in the app on get your guide you almost always have a 10% discount which on such a sum does a lot! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED not only the pass, but also get your guide which has crazy assistance and crazy patience

Almost everything worked very well. We reserved a time for the Statue of Liberty, which was completely unnecessary as it was not checked, nor was there a queue. The waiting time was very short for all attractions. Never longer than 20 minutes. The only thing that didn't work was going to Top if the Rock. Very badly organized, completely chaotic. Absolutely not recommended.

It has always worked great and as described. The app for this is great and describes for each activity whether you need a ticket and have to get it with the pass first or whether the pass itself is the ticket.

The NY pass is a great choice to see all the iconic places and save money. Can totally recommend it.

Absolutely a must if your visiting New York saves you so much money
