Read what other Viator.com travelers think about the Viator VIP: Rockefeller Center Ice Skating Experience and Top of the Rock Observation Deck. What they loved, what they liked and what they think could be improved, it's all here to help you make the most of your next trip.
Viator VIP was a perfect choice. The chalet down on the ice level was the place to be for hot chocolate, water and cookies when our girls wanted a break. My husband did not skate so he waited in a nice warm place. At one point we needed help with fitting out skates and the staff was ready to help and very pleasant. I am not a great skater, but this was a thrill I will never forget. The trip to the Top was great as expected. Too bad we needed to exchange our white VIATOR passes for Top tickets first, but at least this line went quickly. I would definitely recommend this tour package to anyone.
Had a fantastic time, and having somewhere cozy to take breaks from the ice was great too.
Very relaxed experience. The chalet itself got a little busy at one point but rest of the time it was easy to have a sit down with your cookie and hot chocolate or stop for a breather.
Would also recommend this to anyone who has a lot to squeeze into their trip. If we hadn't had this booked I don't think we'd have done it with all our other plans.
It was great except there was no time selection and I was unaware of the 8:30a.m. Start time. Thankfully enough the women checking people in found some holiday spirit and honored our tickets still. An amazing experience when we got there thankfully enough. It was a surprise for my girlfriends bday!
One of the best experiences ever!!! VIP Ice Skating in Rockefeller Center is the ONLY way to go! Everything was perfect from beginning to end.....The staff was friendly and really made us feel like VIP's. The experience was a once in a life time- we even got to meet Brian Botiano!!
The Ice Skating portion of this experience was awesome and so worth not waiting in the long outdoor line during the holidays. We had a designated time to get into the rink and a warm area to warm up in complete with hot cocoa and cookies. What we didn't realize was that our Top of the Rock Observation was not guaranteed for a definite time. We were given a ticket to come back over an hour later. It was such an overcast day that we decided not to hang around or come back for that portion.
Fantastic, the experience was great, we had loads of time on the ice, and the cookies and coffee came in very handy...would certainty book it again.
