The Skyride experience was great fun and the views from the top of the Empire State were fantastic. The trip appealed to us all - even the teenager who is hard to impress thought it was fabulous!
Excellent experience...beautiful day helped seeing the city! Thanks!
This is a must to do, particularly on a clear day. It was amazing how the guys built the building back then.
went up at night and it was fantastic to see all the sights lit up
My trip to NYC was all I imagined and more. I am so happy I added the NY Skyride and Empire State Building Observatory to my itinerary. Looking at the city from such heights is indescribable, it's a must do. I highly recommend it to anyone, and hope you enjoy it as much as I did!!!
If you go to New York you will go up the Empire State Building so please use this tour ,its a fast track to the top plus no waiting and it includes the SKYRIDE
I ejoyed the SKYRIDE. I say its very worth it...plus you get to skip that long line to go upstairs. I am a native New Yorker...and this was great!
Our family loved the Empire State Building. My wife is frightened of heights but we encouraged her to go to the top and then out onto the outside platform - she loved it in fact thought it was the best thing we did in New York. We did the ESB in the morning having visited Top of the Rock the previous evening. It was great to do them at different times as you get a different perspective. Great views from TOTR too particularly seeing ESB lit up. We also booked NY Skyride. You ride this before going up the ESB and get a 'helicopter' style ride over NYC with a Kevin Bacon commentary. The ride and area are undergoing a refurbishment and it does need upgrading. The ride did allow us to avoid the queues to go up the ESB but I wouldn't bother booking it again unless the refurb provides a significant improvement. That said ESB was marvellous with views right across the city with the one looking South towards the Statue of Liberty particularly impressive. The gift shop was also very good. When in New York, you must do the ESB!!!
