After locating the entrance to the Rockefeller Centre mid morning, making our way in the queue for tickets, we found we had to make a booking for Top of the Rock, which was later that night. As this was some distance from our hotel, we...More

This is a must, if you buy a New York Pass it’s included, go early to avoid long queues. The view from the top is spectacular and you can walk all the way around, you also get to see the Empire State Building. We did...More

We did both The Empire State Building and Top of the rock. Top of the rock has the best view but where customer service is concerned Top of the Rock fell very short. It clearly pays to have a tall building as the amount that...More

It's touristy, but it's very nice. The staff is surprisingly friendly and the view is wonderful. It lives up to the hype

We went to the top at night. It has nice views of the Empire State Building, which lights up nice at night. It has both inside and outside viewing areas. There were no lines when we went around 7:30 PM.

Magnificent views from the top especially if clear weather you can see for miles around. Empire is straight in front so you get a good view of that as well. Only disappointing part of the experience is the rudeness and abruptness of the staff. They...More

Loved the view, a definite must do when visiting NYC, I loved the ice rink too. A very easy to get to attraction. Great to see the history of the building too.

Yes, all done on the phone, via their website. And there’s no need to collect or print; you’ll get an e-ticket on your email with a QPR code which the staff scan at the door.
