No messing about here, VIP tickets all the way to the top, No queuing only at security straight in the lifts all the way up, and what a view you get.
Amazing views from here, our tickets were booked for Nov10 but due to bad weather ,they allowed us to come back the next day with no issues! There was no line up's so skip the line option wasn't really necessary at all , so we kinda wasted that extra money, but still worth the trip!
Bought this as a present for my daughter, son in law and grandson. They absolutely loved the experience, said they wouldn't have missed it for the world. To make make it a better gift for them I upgraded the tickets so they didn't have to queue, they said this was wonderful.
Really good tour.Saw excellent views of New York. Would recommend this. We has pre teens with us and they loved it as well.
We visited the Empire state building at night... There was a full moon and clear skies that night so the queues were very long... thankfully I had bought vip tickets and we were up at the top within 10 minutes... I felt a bit guilty bypassing the people standing in line but it was worth every penny to be able to jump the queue and the views were spectacular that evening... definitely a must do for any visitor to NYC
Fantastic! Views brilliant. The skip the line tickets were well worth the money. After a day sight seeing it saved time queueing up and made the trip even more enjoyable.
Saw this amazing view at midnight on our last night. Breathtaking.
DEFO worth the Optional skip the line tickets..... Felt like a VIP and went straight to the top!!!! Lovely to go just as the sun is going down....
Well worth getting tickets in advance. Got there about 9am and meant we had no queueing and lots of room for photos on what was a lovely clear day. Highly recommend.
This was great and excellent value for money. Skipping the long queue of waiting people was great as we were able to get there much faster. Thoroughly recommend!
Brilliant views we was so lucky with the weather, we bought the skip the line tickets but no queues for any one, always going to be a gamble. Xx
We went at time, and the VIP treatment was the best, did not have to wait at all.
But totally fabulous views of NYC! a must do.
We went at night time for a completely different view of the city and I have to say that we liked it better. Beautiful views across the city and to the Statue of Liberty. No queues at 6pm when we got there. Only annoying part was leaving as the queues seemed to appear to get out of the building.
Go VIP is all I can say. We were fast tracked throughout this trip, and boy was it worth the extra cost.
Fantastic experience and one I am glad I did.
Great view from the top! Bought the 'skip the line' tickets but didn't need them. We arrived at 8am and there were no queues.
I'm so pleased we didn't pay extra for Skip the Line tickets. We arrived around mid-morning and there were around 10 or so people in front of us at security. Getting in was so easy. The exhibition about the construction was very interesting and the views from up there are stunning. These tickets are flexible so if there is a long queue, try another day.
You have to do the Empire State Building trip and the Optional Skip the Line Tickets are worth it. Just be sure to let the people know you have them :
great time friend proposed to on the observatory deck good nightime views of the city
Skip the Line Tickets were well worth it! Never had to wait once.
