Seniors snap up US national park passes before 700 percent price hike

Up to 2 million passes

Out-of-the-way Craters of the Moon still has the lifetime passes, but other areas that draw more visitors have run out, and officials authorized a rain check policy in mid-July. The policy allows people to use vouchers instead of the lifetime passes, and ultimately exchange them for one of the plastic, credit card-sized senior passes when they become available.

Some sites normally sell only a few hundred passes a year, Tom Crosson, the National Parks Service’s chief of public affairs, said in an email to The Associated Press. “Now, they are selling that many in a day.”
