The Balboa Park Explorer pass is good for 365 days! (From the time of purchase) It’s a great way to keep your loved ones thinking about you every time they use the pass, all year long.

The pass is available for purchase at four levels:

  • Adult $129 ~ ages 18 and up
  • Student $99 ~ valid for full time students with valid ID
