Discovery Pass Prices

Coming Soon: Discovery Passes for the 2019 season will go on sale in early 2019. Please check back for more information!

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 in spring 2019. However, individual tickets to attractions may still be available before and after the Pass is valid.

Discovery Passes provide 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 will expire on a set date in fall 2019. (Date to be announced soon.) 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.

Feel the Power of the Falls

Experience the power of Niagara Falls up close when you ride the world famous Maid of the Mist Boat tour or stand under the Bridal Veil Falls in the Cave of the Winds.
