Purchasing the VIP tickets to the Empire State Building was a great decision. My wife and I surpassed the two plus hour line as well as the cold and went right to the top in about 10 minutes. With the VIP tickets you are also swept back down in similar fashion. I have and will continue to recommend purchasing the VIP tickets for those seeking NYC in their travel plans especially during the holidays. My wife and I had the best time. Thanks Viator you have the best tours and will continue to use you in the future.

Great view. The wait was pretty long. I went at what seemed like peak time. I guess earlier or later times were better options. Overall it was great. Worth the wait.

The queue was round the block. We skipped the lit and went straight up. Saved us hours!!

The Empire State observatory was definitely worth the visit and rated as 2 or 3 for our NYC visit. However, as is often the case with skip the line tickets, there was not a separate entrance for VIP ticket holders. You must simply barrel your way through announcing your special status. One nice official saw our wristbands as we patiently waited in the line inside the building one of several lines throughout the tour--which we thought was for those like us, and told us to move on up and never stand in another line. There is one line you won't want to miss--the line where your picture is taken to be superimposed in front of a facade of the building--it's part of the Viator package and we missed it due to some kind of snafu.

Skip the line was the best for high season period. Buy it if you're visiting on holiday seasons or if you are travelling with many family members.

amazing! well worth doing. we paid a little extra to go to the top floor but it was very misty so didn't see an awful lot but still worth doing as we managed to get some photos as the mist cleared.

Second best travel money I ever spent! The best being signing up for TSA Precheck. This was a great deal. Get the Skip the line option. They give you a VIP wristband and you literally do bypass all the lines, both on the way up to the observatory and on the way down. I went on a Saturday afternoon and the line to get in the building was around the block, then there are about 5 more lines once you get inside, it was crazy. If I hadn't had this VIP pass I would never have waited all that time. Amazing. I was able to do so many other things the same day because I didn't waste any time waiting in the long lines at the Empire State building. Oh yes, and the view of NYC from the top is simply amazing, everything you've ever seen in the movies and more.

We visit the Empire 1 week before Thanksgiving weekend. WE had zero lines at 3 p.m.. We went only to the 86th floor. It was perfect. A must do.

Absolutely fantastic tour. Must get VIP pass to jump the queue-well worth the money. We got in straight away whereas line up was out the door. Views were spectacular. When we left, queue was out the door and down the street. We arrived around 10am and left around 11.30am. A must do in New York.

Fantastic experience and we were literally waved on to the front of all queues from street level to the top! From entering the lobby to getting to the top took only around 15 minutes and most of that time was security checks!

We absolutely loved visiting the Empire State Building! The staff moved the lines very quickly so we could get to the top. Awesome views of New York! We were able to stay as long as we wanted to, it has good food available and many on site gift shops. Definitley one of the must sees of New York!

This was fantastic and saved us so much time, very slick process. The ticket was great as it wasn't time specific but when we got there the process was so much easier and not having to queue made the whole experience even more amazing!! Fantastic idea and DEFINITELY recommend doing this to avoid hours of queues!!
