Top of the rock offre une expérience inoubliable et permet d’admirer tout Manhattan. On peut plus particulièrement voir l’empire state building et central Park. Avant l’ascension, il y a un petit parcours explicatif sur le lieu. Le Rockefeller center est également un bâtiment de style art déco exceptionnel. Cette vite vaut vraiment la peine d’être faite ne serait-ce que pour la vue de toute beauté. Elle est souvent incluse dans les divers pass proposés.

Well worth the ticket to get in. You get amazing views of New York City. We paired this with the full Rockefeller Center tour.

Really enjoyable. Easy online booking. Short queues and better value (compared to empire state bldg etc), very friendly staff (special thanks to the cheerful Kenyan chap at the very top level!). Would highly recommend it.

Monter autant d'étages aussi vite c'est déjà impressionnant mais ce n'est clairement rien comparé à la vue de dingue qui vous attend en haut. Vue sur NYC à 360 degrés, y compris Central Park, l'Empire, la statue. Si vous le pouvez, choisissez un horaire 1h avant coucher du soleil, de cette façon vous profiterez de la vue de jour, puis avec le soleil couchant et enfin la ville qui s'éclaire. C'est magique.

Booked as one of our 5 CityPass attractions, we had booked out day/timeslot (easy process) but when we arrived it was quite a foggy day. However, the guy on the door confirmed that visibility was bad and said they would be happy to change our time to later in the day, just go to the reception desk! We did this (no queue) and went back later in the afternoon when the fog had cleared and the sun had come out and had some fantastic views! There are several viewing platforms on different levels and the highest one doesn't have any screens so is perfect for great photos.. A must do experience and in our view better than the Empire State building where we were not offered the chance to change out booked time when it was foggy then too and the queues were much longer.

We were walking nearby when we decided to enter and check if the waiting line was too long. we were so surprised that there was no waiting line at all. We bought tickets and went up to enjoy the beautiful view of New York.

Stunning views of the city! Truly amazing to get the 360 angles outside without glass! Easy to buy tickets, reasonably priced, friendly staff at all areas you go through, good safety measures as expected. Definitely recommend.

Surprised to see some bad reviews & poor experiences, have to say our visit was excellent. First we booked using CityPass ticket - out planned visit was 8pm Monday evening but on arrival was told the top was a foggy white” so advised to rebook which we did with no problem - staff were really helpful. On revisit we could see a massive queue but with our new timed entry tickets we skipped the long queue & headed straight in. We went through a small visitor exhibition which was nice, staff were a bit more ‘direct’ & casually dressed Vs Empire State but still helpful. Viewing platforms were excellent, with some great pre-set pic points which in the main visitors were respectful to allow people to take family pics, helping each other. One or 2 tourists had to be asked politely to move out of the way which most did as had wondered into the spot without realizing. Loved the views, all round this city, the top platform in hindered by safety fencing or screens. We had a great experience & hope many others do also.

This was the perfect end to our visit to New York. We booked a sunset time to go up and the views were spectacular. We would thoroughly recommend this trip
