We bought Express line for vip, it was a blessing. You skip all wait kines, you do not need to wait in ticket lines , do not need to wait in elevators line at 80 th, 86 th floors, and do not need to wait in lines for going down. Please make ask for Vip lines, if you find yoyse,f in lines. Vip, does not need wait in lines. Even you do not wait for security lines, they will put you to the security without a wait. Highly recommend. It saves you hours for those lines wait. The evening views are wonderful....a lot of pictures

Having been to the Empire State building before getting the Skip the Line Tickets made it an enjoyable experience. We breezed past others and felt like royalty. Would highly recommend people to spend a little more and do this. We also with shortly after the building opened in the morning and at that time did see the regular line building.

It was great! And, by buying through you, we weren't ripped off by the street people selling tickets to the Empire State Building with all their comments about how we were going to stand in lines for over 45 minutes , etc. I will definitely use your site in the future as your promises met my expectations and....we waited in line for approximately 5 five minutes!

The Skip the line option is definitely the way to go. It took significant time off waiting to get to the top. VIP treatment all the way.

It was great we had 5 in our group and it went very smoothly. The not waiting was great and worth the extra money. I will recommend it to my friends.

It is definitely worth paying extra for ' skip the lines' tickets. We felt like royalty as we were escorted passed the queues. The view from the top is amazing and the inside of the building, especially the foyer, is very beautiful. A fantastic experience!

Although there were no queues as we were early there could have been an enormous queue which could be claustrophobic and very hot in Summer!
Simply a MUST SEE in New York.
The Art Deco interior is beautiful as well.

Absolutely excellent - we paid the additional extra to jskip the line and it was well worth it especially as unknowingly we picked a national holiday to go! Everything was as we expected, treated very well by all of the staff and the views were fantastic. Will be going back next year.
