It was great! . Did not stand in queues, it was quick, unbelievable views!
This is a must when visiting the Empire State Building. The wait time was greatly reduced.
We visited at 6.30pm on May 1st and didn't really need the express tickets as it wasn't very busy. That said, it was just the beginning of May and I understand that it does get busier as the month goes on. The views from the top are truly spectacular - well worth the trip up - but boy is it high!
Express pass is a must... The staff were helpful. The view was amazing and breath taking.
Skip the line is a must,made the hole experience even better.
NO waiting in any line. Went around 5 on a Sunday. We walked right in and kept walking! It was great!
This was a birthday present for my husband and the priority tickets were fantastic each time we reached a queue we were immediately taken to the front of the queue both going up and coming down, the staff were very polite and helpful. we thoroughly enjoyed the trip and experience. Booking via Viator was very easy
Skip the Line tickets were definitely worth the extra - would recommend getting them
Enjoyed this so much!! We waited to go till 11:00 p.m. and the view of the city lights was awesome!!
The Empire State Building is a must for a few reasons - it is absolutely beautiful and it helps you better understand the layout of the city. Express skip the line tickets are the only way to go. When you are only in NYC for a few days, how much is your time worth? To me, it is definitely worth the price not to stand in the long lines. If you come up to a line at any point before reaching the observation tower, just point out that you have an express ticket to the next worker you see and they will point you in the right direction. They were extremely helpful every step of the way. Great experience.
The skip the queue ticket is worth its weight in gold. We were in, through security and on 102nd floor in about 5 minutes. I would imagine all the queues we missed would have easily seem us waiting a couple of hours to get in. Really truly worth it.
A great way to start off our trip to New York and avoiding the queues was a real benefit.
