August 2015

Worked well when used to access specific venues such as Top of the Rock, MOMA as check in and processing was very time efficient. Did not work as well with getting tickets for bus tours. We picked up our passes at Hard Rock Café. There was quite a wait as there was only one person working the desk. Materials provided were not that clear and as it turns out, not current. The locations for getting tickets for the bus tours were mostly close to Times Square which was crowded and challenging to get around. For our 1st tour, the ticket agent provided the wrong address for embarkation point which we only found out after a long an protracted journey down to Battery Park via subway and shuttle bus. Actual location was a number of blocks north, necessitating another trip in extremely hot weather. Also Central Park Sightseeing was also listed as a location to book tours. The day I went, I was told that that service had been discontinued a couple of weeks earlier and that I would have to go back down to Times Square several blocks south. Made my way down there to find out you can only take 1 bus tour on the pass. Partly my fault as I missed this information in the package, but frustrating. Receiving incorrect information twice was unacceptable. To sum up, be prepared for a potentially long wait to pick up your pass, and be aware that it works best with attractions like museums. I would not get this pass again.

We were very happy with the explorer pass. We had the pass for 3 Attractions MoMa, Hop On Hop Off Downtown and Top of the Rock. The pick up was easy and the best thing was the fast entry - especially in the Moma we could avoid huge lines in front of the ticket desk!
It was not really much cheaper than buying tickets directly in NY. We paid EUR 70 for the Explorer Pass. Top of the Rock and Moma is ca. 25.00 EUR - and Bus depends on the vendor...

Easy to use as one of the 3 collection points for our pass was just around the corner from our hotel and we visited Moma, Guggenheim and Empire State Building so we only saved £12 between 3 of us, so how much you save depends on where you visit.

While I enjoyed the activities I chose (Top of the Rock, a Twilight Boat cruise and MOMA) I didn't feel it was great value for money - we had to chose carefully to make sure we 'spent' the cost of the Explorer Pass. Also, I wasn't aware that we avoided any queues - still had to queue for Top of the Rock. So I wouldn't buy a pass again, sorry!

When we decided to take our first of 5 venues, we picked the city tour. The tour was great - very informative and fun. We used the pass for Rockefeller Centre and then ventured to the Guggenheim and MoMA. At the Museum of Natural History, we learned we were to have redeemed our pass at Ripley's. I went through all of my email correspondence and did not find any information about that. I did find the information in the booklet. When we visited, we were advised of many exhibit closures. When we expressed our displeasure at paying full price for admission with so many closures, they replied that admission was by donation and they would accept half price. We concluded that the price of the pass was the same as if you were paying regular price - and you had to pass through a special ticket counter for each venue, which had less staff and sometimes more customers than the regular lines.
