This popular attraction gives travelers an up-close, virtual tour of all of New York’s biggest (and most famous!) attractions.

The NY Skyride is the perfect option for travelers on a budget, or those who want to explore the city from the comfort—and safety—of a theater seat, rather than aboard a five-seat helicopter. Paired with a trip to the observation deck of the Empire State Building, where epic views of the city skyline are truly hard to beat—a trip on the NY Skyride is the quintessential New York City afternoon adventure.
The NY Skyride if located at 350 5th Avenue, between 33rd and 34th Streets. It is open daily from 8 a.m. until 10 p.m.
