Daytime or night - anytime is the right time to visit the Top of the Rock Observation Deck. Perched 70 stories above the city at Rockefeller Center, with 3 outdoor and indoor viewing decks, the 360-degree views of New York City are unequaled anywhere else.

Upon arriving at 30 Rockefeller Plaza, take time to admire the stunning, shimmering Swarovski chandelier on your way to the exhibits of Rockefeller Center’s historic construction during the Great Depression. Ascend to the Top in less than 1 minute with a ride up 850 feet (260 m) on the Sky Shuttle.

Explore 3 floors with expansive, unobstructed indoor and outdoor viewing areas. The breathtaking views stretch for miles in every direction! You'll feel like you are floating above Central Park as you take in views of New York's most famous landmarks including the Empire State Building, the Chrysler Building, One World Trade Center, and the Statue of Liberty. Top off your visit on the 70th floor, a completely open-air deck!

We had absolutely no problems with our vouchers. You just have to keep in mind to redeem your vouchers in tickets to get in. Do it a Day before your actual visit.

Amazing views, great staff, no lines and items were not overly priced. Would definitely go again if I go back to New York.

We were in New York for only a few days and did very little “educational” things. We came for the shows and shopping. We did the Top of the Rock and the 911 Memorial Park and both of them were well worth our time. Top of the Rock has an amazing view of the city and several different levels to take photos on. We paid an extra dollar to get a printed out map of all the buildings and enjoyed locating all of them! Would recommend for sure!!!

Top of the Rock is sensational .. beware when booking with Cool Destinations.. it’s a voucher but not a ticket .. still had to queue to actually do it !!! Not what I expected

Fantastic night time view of the city. Pre booked the tickets which saved a lot of queueing time although it does mean calling earlier in the day to arrange a time slot. Very friendly staff added to a great evening.

Amazing views from the top well worth a visit plenty of time to look round staff very helpful lovely views at night over the city

Go at least an hour before you want to view - there will be a 45-50 minute delay once tickets are bought.
