How does the Explorer pass work?
The Explorer pass is perfect for sightseers who are visiting a city for longer and want to take their time seeing the sights without much of a time constraint.
With the Explorer pass, you can choose the number of attractions you're interested in seeing, either 3, 4, or 5. Once you've activated your pass by visiting an attraction, you'll then have up to 30 days to visit the rest. There is no need to choose which attractions you'd like to see before you purchase the card, you can pick and choose any of the Explorer attractions as you go. This allows you to change your mind and wait and see what you feel like in the moment.
The more attractions you choose the more you'll save, and you can save up to 47% on attraction ticket prices with this product. Make sure you check out the attraction line up here for the Explorer pass as they vary from pass to pass.
