How to purchase a pass
All orders for passes must be placed using the shopping basket facility provided on the website or the app. When you submit your order, you are offering to purchase passes at the prices indicated on the website or the app via which you have purchased your pass.
To make your order you will be directed to a secure website operated by our provider of online payment facilities where you can enter your payment information. Once you have entered your payment information and your payment has been confirmed, you will then be directed to a final confirmation screen displaying the details relating to your order.
We will acknowledge receipt and acceptance of your order by email. The contract between us is not formed until we confirm that we have accepted your order.
If you discover you have made a mistake with your order, please contact us immediately.
It is your responsibility to provide the correct email and delivery address information when ordering. If an order is subsequently delivered to the wrong e-mail/postal address due to inaccurate delivery information, we are unable to accept liability.
Where applicable, the prices indicated include VAT in the UK (or applicable sales tax in other countries).
Payment is due in the currency shown on the website or the app used by you during the ordering process.
Delivery of your pass
Your pass will be dispatched to you by email and available to use following receipt of your payment. You can choose to use your pass via the app or you can print your pass and guidebook.
Your pass will be activated on the date when you first use it at an attraction (the activation date). Your pass can be activated at any time during the period of 24 months starting from the date of purchase.
Once your pass has been activated you will be entitled to use it for the number of consecutive calendar days you have purchased (Validity Days”) commencing on the day on which you make first use of it (regardless of the time of day).
Advanced Reservations via our Reserve Portal
Certain attractions can be pre booked using our Reserve Portal system. Go City reserves the right to auto-cancel a customer’s reservation under the following circumstances:
- If the reservation is made outside the validity days of the pass
- If the reservation relates to a pass that is found to be fraudulent
In the event of such an auto-cancellation, Go City shall not be financially liable for any costs or expenses associated with the auto-cancelled reservation.
Special offers and promotional codes
Offers outlined or promoted on the website and app are at times subject to attraction partners’ rules. This can include custom refund or booking instructions, conditions or regulations. You must adhere to those rules, booking instructions, conditions, instructions or regulations.
You can only receive a promotional code discount if you use a valid promotional code at the time you place your order. Promotional codes are offered at our discretion and unless we specify otherwise promotional code discounts cannot be combined with any other online sale or promotion.
Your rights to cancel and receive a refund
As long as you have not already activated your pass, if you are a customer in the UK or EU, you may have a legal right to change your mind within 14 days of your purchase and receive a refund. In these circumstances you have 14 days starting on the day after the date we email you to confirm that we accept your order to cancel your purchase.
In addition to any applicable legal right to change your mind and receive a refund, for any passes bought prior to 25th August 2021, we offer a goodwill guarantee right to cancel and receive a refund within 90 days beginning on the date of purchase. For any passes bought from 25th August 2021 onwards, we offer a goodwill guarantee right to cancel and receive a refund within 365 days beginning on the date of purchase.
You must contact us. We will refund you the price you paid for the pass by the method and in the currency you used for payment. We will make any refunds due to you as soon as possible but in any event within 14 days of your telling us you have changed your mind.
We are unable to offer a refund for any order where a pass has been used or activated. No refund will be offered for passes that have been activated but not used for their full duration.
Please note that if you pre-book an attraction before your visit that will be considered an activation of a pass and a refund will not be available.
Conditions of use
The pass entitles the holder to admission to listed attractions and services (the attractions) upon presentation and without further payment, together with any other offers and discounts where appropriate (the special offers and / or passholder offers).
Admission to attractions is subject to the pass being valid. All attractions are required to accept admission as outlined in the attraction offer for the pass purchased, subject to their normal admission criteria. You may only visit an attraction on one occasion on each pass.
There is a limit of one person per pass, although you may purchase passes for the use of others, in which case the other persons will be the sole users of their respective passes.
Passes are non-transferable and you may not re-sell them.
Use of a single pass to gain admissions for multiple individuals constitutes fraud and may be subject to legal action. You agree to reimburse us for costs incurred through misuse of the passes including any amounts we are contractually bound to pay to visited attractions, as well as our legal costs and any recovery costs incurred by us to obtain such reimbursement from you. If you use the pass improperly or in breach of these terms you agree to indemnify us as a result of such misuse.
Exclusions and disclaimers
We have done our best to ensure the accuracy of the information on our websites, apps, and in the descriptions of the attractions. Because conditions, including but not limited to hours, holiday closures, etc. at the attractions may change from time to time subsequent to the purchase date, we cannot guarantee that each attraction will honour its indicated commitments at the time you make use of the pass. To the extent permitted by applicable law, we are not liable to you for any loss, expense, damage, or other inconvenience caused in any way by your reliance upon information contained on the website, the apps or in any attraction descriptions accompanying your pass.
Occasionally, an error may occur and products may be either incorrectly priced or described. In which case, we are not obliged to supply the pass or our products at the incorrect price or in accordance with the incorrect description, or at all. We reserve the right to correct any errors from time to time. Where a pricing error is obvious and not mistakeable and could reasonably have been recognised by you as a mispricing, we may (at our discretion) either cancel your order and refund the price you have paid or use reasonable endeavours to contact you and ask whether you wish to continue with the order at the correct price or correct description. If we are unable to contact you or you do not wish to continue with the order at the correct price or correct description, we will cancel your order and refund the price you have paid.
Our liability to you
We are not liable to you for any deficiencies in service, problems with admission, public health violations, safety problems, personal injury or sickness, including any health and safety matters relating to any epidemic or pandemic, including but not limited to COVID19, that should arise when you visit any of the attractions. You should resolve such problems with the attraction directly, just as you would if you had purchased an admission ticket from the attraction without the use of the pass.
We are not liable to you for traffic conditions or weather that may affect your ability to use the pass.
If we fail to comply with these terms, we are responsible for foreseeable loss or damage you suffer that is a reasonable result of our breaking this contract or our failing to use reasonable skill and care, but we are not responsible for any loss or damage that is not foreseeable. Loss or damage is foreseeable if either it is obvious that it will happen or if, at the time the contract was made, both we and you knew it might happen, for example, if you discussed it with us during the sales process.
We do not exclude or limit in any way our liability to you where it would be unlawful to do so. This includes liability for death or personal injury caused by our negligence or for fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation.
Nothing in these terms shall exclude or limit any statutory or common law rights that you enjoy as a consumer.
We only supply services for personal, non-business use. You are not entitled to re-sell the pass for any commercial or business purpose and we will have no liability to you for any loss or profit, loss of business, business interruption, or loss of business opportunity.
We will not be liable for any delay or failure to perform any or our obligation under these terms if such delay or failure results from events, circumstances or causes beyond our reasonable control, including without limitation interruption or failure of internet or utility, collapse or buildings, act of god, fire, explosion, drought, earthquake or other natural disaster, nuclear, chemical or biological contamination or sonic boom, terrorism, war, civil war, civil commotion or riot, pandemic or epidemic, any labour or trade dispute, strikes, industrial action or lockouts, and any law or any action taken by a government or public authority.

The savings guarantee refunds you for any difference between the price paid for your pass and the sum of the admission prices of each of the attractions you visited whilst using the pass (“the savings difference”). New York Pass will refund you for this savings difference only if the criteria below are met whilst using the pass for which a claim is being made.
To qualify for the savings guarantee, the following conditions apply:
The savings guarantee applies to all passes purchased after 30 June 2023.
The savings guarantee will be calculated based on the attractions’ website admission price at the date of visit.
The savings are calculated based on the sum of the total admission prices of the attractions visited compared to the net price paid for the pass after any discount or voucher codes.
For customers purchasing the New York Pass, the customer must have visited at least 3 attractions on the number of days purchased over the validity period to qualify for the savings guarantee. For example, if a customer purchases a 3 day New York Pass, the customer must have visited 9 attractions over the qualifying period to qualify for the savings guarantee.
A reservation made for an attraction will be counted as an attraction visit unless the reservation is cancelled within the time frame allowed.
To make a claim, details of the attractions visited and the gate prices of the attractions on the date of visit should be sent to [email protected]. All claims will be verified against our systems to validate the claim. In case of any discrepancy, the attractions visited will be based on the visits/scans as recorded in our systems.
All claims must be made within fourteen days of the expiry of the pass.
New York Pass will have up to five working days from receipt of the claim, to validate the claim. Any monies due will be refunded to the original method of payment.
