Very organized getting up there but don't stay til closing as we did. Although it's worth the sunset views, the crowd going down is huge so be prepared, it takes quite a while. If you have a show to go to, you'd miss it. The views are spectacular. Everyone should go at least once.
Excellent. Easy process. Went to ticket counter the day of and exchanged tickets for a time later in the evening. We got there later in the day two hours earlier than ticket time, went up to ticket counter and were able to exchange the tickets for 30 minutes later, even on the Friday before Christmas. The extra 30 minutes gave us time to go see the tree. By the way the best tree yet!
Definitely worth doing this if visiting New York. We went to the top of the Rock early evening and New York in the dark was amazing. No doubt equally wonderful during the day. If you turn up early you can book the time you want to go up. The lift to the top is quick and the Observation Decks offer great views of the whole of New York. Safe for all the family. Despite not liking heights the Observation Decks allow cowards to sit inside ... the brave could wander around outside and take great photos. Would recommend.
We followed the historical sites mentioned in the book The Harbinger first St. Paul's Chapel at ground zero, George Washington's church where the first members of Congress dedicated America to God of the Bible, the sycamore tree, the memorial and the finale was going to the Top of the Rock which puts many things in context. Beautiful views of all the buildings man has made and the creation of a beautiful city. The amazing thing was how it could all be gone in a moment and made us reflect on what is really important in our lives. Some things we take with us when we leave earth and others we can never take with us. Very sobering in the context of God's creation, purpose and significance for each life. Also our starting point in history living in a country that has been blessed and where we are today as a country who has turned away from God.

It was very easy to use the Viator voucher to get our tickets for the Top of the Rock. Once you exchange the voucher, you then receive your timed pass and can enter the building. Do not show up more than 5 minutes early - you will not be permitted into the tour space. After a quick security check, you then go up the elevator to the observation decks. Definitely get the map so you can identify all of the buildings. Great views of the city and at night, it is spectacular. Three different viewing levels, all offering a great outlook. Our group had a small child and a senior citizen and they both had a great time.
Outstanding experience. The center was under complete cloud cover the night of our tickets, so they exchanged them for a different night. Very flexible and accommodating. The views were spectacular and so much better than the Empire because you get to see the Empire, Chrysler,amid Freedom Tower all from the downtown view.
Thoroughly recommend this if your visiting New York. Very well organised although there was very little signage to get around and especially how to exit after you've been around.
Excellent. Fantastic views of NY, incuding the Empire State and Central Park.
This is a wonderful experience for those who are visiting NYC for the first time. It is easy to find the entrance, the wait is not long, and there is much to learn while you wait. The elevator ride is fast, and with a glass ceiling, you are very connected to where you are in the building. Being able to explore the three top levels at your own pace, and to view Central Park, Midtown, the Empire State and Chrysler buildings and all the way to downtown Manhattan, the Freedom Tower, the bay and bridges and the Statue of Liberty make it a great place to get a lay of the city, and see most of the major landmarks. Don't miss it.
Really good. Voucher worked well and we were able to visit at a time convenient to us without a queue.
Even though the visibility was at 50 when we went up it is spectacular! We failed to print our vouchers from Viator and the staff at Top of the Rock could not have been more helpful. We emailed the confirmation to them and they printed them for us. We went about 4:30 just as the sun began to go down and saw the lights coming on all over the city.
Definitely do this!
With coupon from Viator, visiting Top of The Rock was a breeze. I recommend going up the Rock at sunset to see the spectacular view. Wait til the city dazzles as it becommes all lit up! wonderful!
The view was breath taking. We could see the whole skyline from the observation deck. I'd recommend that to anyone visiting New York City.
took in the view at night, wow!! What a perfect view of entire city from here! Loved this spot
