We made it all the way from Texas to bring our family to see the falls. We had purchased passes to the Maid of the Mist. When we arrived, we learned that there is a discovery pass. We upgraded our passes and were able to do the Cave of the Winds, trolley all day (those trolleys get packed), and Maid of the Mist. You also get access to the Discovery Center and Aquarium, but we didn’t make it to those attractions. There is also a movie that shows the history of Niagara. That was pretty cool.
It was beautiful. Just remember that, even though you get the pass, you still have to go to the ticket station and trade your pass coupon for actual tickets. You get a wrist band for the trolley.
There is a lot to do so you should plan to spend several hours here if you want to take advantage of all the pass gives you. More
