We choose skip the line and it was well worth the extra. the staff were very friendly especially when they saw the skip the line wrist bands!
we also went on the skyride but it was a little bit dull.
One of the best things I have ever done. Recommended to purchase the VIP pass to skip the lines. Excellent organisation all round
excellent experience. a must if you are in NYC. the express line was worth the extra .
Had a great evening at the Empire State Building, was definitely worth a visit. Would suggest if you are pushed for time that the VIP option was worth while. We arrived, skipped the queues and were at the top within 10minutes. One lady said they had waited for 2 hours!!!
We went to the 102 floor for an extra 20 -- doesn't look much different. We also did the top of the Rock which was much less crowded and also beautiful
After waiting in line for a hour I decided to buy the no line passes. The lines were so long. I would suggest paying the extra money and buy the no line passes. It was wonderful walking passed everyone in line.
Totally worth the Skip the Line option! We were up to the 86th floor in minutes! Did not have to wait in any lines at all....felt very VIP.
The view was beautiful! We went there after 11pm. The lines were also relatively short.
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!
If you've never done it before it's well worth the visit. We were lucky joined the queue mid afternoon didn't take long before we were admiring the,views.
We were there Saturday morning,no lines .We were in and out in less then an hour.The people outside were trying to sell express passes and lied that time to the top was over an hour.Great experience , spectacular view ,nice weather.
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
This was awesome!! Worth every penny!! Got there at the right time-not to long of a wait.
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.
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 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!
Great visit, recommend the fast track option. Straight up! No hassle! Best views of Manhattan. Just do it!
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.
The skip the line tickets really worked! It was awesome to go around hundreds of people in line! Would definitely do it this way again!
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
