Read what other Viator.com travelers think about the Empire State Building Tickets - Observatory and Optional Skip the Line Tickets. What they loved, what they liked and what they think could be improved, it's all here to help you make the most of your next trip.
The EBS is a must-do attraction in NY! The skip-the-line "upgrade" undoubtedly saves a huge amount of time (possibly hours), with 5 different lines to cross before reaching top (one for entering, buying tickets, security, elevators up and even down!). After zooming through all the lines, you can spent as much time and do as many 360 photos of the Manhattan Skyline. It was great to get there before sunset to admire the same view with different lights and see the city come alive at night.
We highly recommend this experience to start off the NYC experience for first-timers. The Skip the Line Tickets were worth every penny.
the Aviator tickets were easy to purchase and print for use. Though for the 4 of us, the tickets printed a total of 16 pages - a waste of tree. I wish we could just show the bar codes on my phone for entry.
Really good and efficient purchase! Saved proberly around 2 hours queing with this ticket
Totally worth paying extra to skip the queue saved a two hour wait
A must do whilst in New York
This was great, swooped past the queues (no waiting in line) at every stage on the way up and back down with the 'skip the line' tickets. Outside the ESB there were touts asking if you had tickets and when we told them about our ones they said ah, yes, they are still not the tickets that will get you up there without delay as they tried to pitch us express elevator tickets or something -- but don't be fooled by the touts, we did not queue at all not even for the included audio tour headsets. My wife was well impressed, it was like VIP. Great views over the city, busy up there, but worth a visit. Also, i went up in 2005/6 and they had a better audiotour (new york cabbie), the one you get now is not as cool (it was a bit dull to be honest - if I could feed that back to the ESB I would).
The trip was amazing! I loved every minute of it! The view was spectacular, the people were informative and friendly.
fantastic !! would highly recommend this ticket if you want to save time !
Fabulous trip. It was a beautiful day we could see for miles. The building was magnificent
Please buy these Empire State building skip the line tickets! Upon arrival, the line for entry was wrapped around the building and estimated at over 3 hour wait. With these express tickets we went straight to entry door, showed tickets to every employee along the way and was at the top in 13 min!
