2017 Discovery Pass Prices

The Niagara Falls USA Discovery Pass will be valid from May 20, 2017  until October 22, 2017. 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 2017

Adult (12 years old +)*              $45

Child (6-12 years old)*              $34

*Niagara Falls offers FREE admission to all Park attractions to children 5 and under.


There is a transaction fee for online Discovery Pass orders. Discovery Passes and a la carte tickets are available for purchase in the Park at no additional cost.  Buy your Discovery Pass  at the Cave of the Winds, Niagara Adventure Theatre, Aquarium, Trolley booths or park Visitor Center. Discovery Passes are also available in several hotels in the city.
