Fantastic visit to Empire State.... A must see!!! So well organised, despite the masses of people there were no huge queues and the swift moving of people through the building was organised amazingly. The views are incredible. One not to miss.

Loved it, great experience all round... Well managed by cheery and helpful staff, queues not too bad, much better than expected which was a real bonus. Brilliant views from the top over Manhattan and beyond, beautiful clear day!

Have been waiting decades to visit and it didn't disappoint! Go early (before 1030am) and you walk through the line quickly.

It was an amazing view I even faced timed my daughter so she could see it, the queues were horrendous to get in but moved very quickly.. One place you have to visit if you ever go to New York.
