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!

Definitely great to skip the lines! Unfortunately it rained on the day we went up so our view wasn't great but it was still amazing

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.

Last year we visited Top of the Rocks and now the Empire State Building and we must say the Empire State Experience is the best! Not only because of the beauty of this classical building also the views are better and more intense.

Get the earliest tickets you can. The queues were't too bad at all.
Enjoyed the views. Other friends have said try the top or the Crysler or the Rock to get views of the ESB. Also a good idea.

Was great to skip the queues and jump to the front watching the dismay on peoples faces as they had to wait. Great views from the top, make sure you can see the top of the Empire State before you go in otherwise the view will be limited. Well worth the money.

What a view you have NYC - we did the day time viewing and the night time viewing for both experiences... It was GREAT!!!

Buying the pass that lets you skip the lines is definitely worth it! There were so many people there but our pass let us go right through to the top. It even lets you onto the elevators right away to go back down afterward. Totally worth the money.
