2018 Discovery Pass Prices
The Niagara Falls USA Discovery Pass will be valid from May 18, 2018 until October 21, 2018. Even though the park is open 365 days a year, the opening of our attractions is based on ice conditions in the Niagara River. The Discovery Pass will become valid once both the Cave of the Winds and Maid of the Mist are both open. However, individual tickets to attractions may still be available before and after the Pass is valid.
Prices for 2018
Adult (12 years old +)* $46
Child (6-12 years old)* $35
*Niagara Falls offers FREE admission to all Park attractions to children 5 and under.
There is a one dollar transaction fee per ticket for online Discovery Pass orders.
Discovery Passes provides one admission to each attraction and do not need to be used the day they are purchased. You may use throughout the duration of your visit, however all passes expire on 10/21/18.
For example, if you arrive late on a Tuesday, buy your pass and only have time to ride the Maid of the Mist, you may come back Wednesday to do the Cave of the Winds. However, the trolley ticket is good for only one day of transportation so you would need to purchase a trolley wristband for each day you are in the park and require trolley transportation.
