“Great views - worth a trip to the top”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 April 2012

We didn't have to wait long to get to the top, so it was a nice and easy endeavor. There are often long lines though, in which case, it wouldn't be so great. The view was great from the top. We could see in all directions and could point out various sites. My teenagers loved it. For a first visit to NYC, I would say this is a great thing to do.

“Grerat location for you next Xmas card photo!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 April 2012

Less crowded than Empire State building-plus you get to have the famous landmark in your photo. Great view of Central Park too. Quick and easy sight seeing-plus take the kids down to the food court in 30 Rock for a cheap lunch-shop in the stores close by when you are done. If it is raining you cannot beat the underground mall and the clean public restrooms.

“ok”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 April 2012

We actually liked the time entry as opposed to the Empire State wait in line. However I found the ticket a bit pricey for what you get. The movie on the way up seemed more a commercial than informative.

“Forget the empire state building, this is better”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 April 2012

If you are looking for great views of NYC, look no further. Top of the Rock is even better than the Empire State building with its panoramic views of the Empire State, Central Park, etc. Plus, it is in a better location for touring NYC.
