Highlights
    What to Expect
    Upon entering Rockefeller Center, pass through security and ride up to the Top of the Rock Observation Deck, open 365 days a year.
    The view is as dramatic a sight as anyone can get in New York City. Day or night, the three floors of indoor and outdoor decks serve to impress. Take in the scenery from a comfortable seat or use binoculars for unobstructed views through glass panels on the 67th and 69th floors and in the open air observatory on the 70th floor. On all three levels, have a photo taken by a Kodak pro and pick it up on the way out.
    Upgrade your ticket to include a guided tour of the famous Rockefeller Center. Stroll through the building, its gardens, and its art spaces and see what Rockefeller’s vision for a cultural space has evolved into.

    Yes the views were good, but not stunning. Unless you go to the very top, you are looking through scratchy glass. And the cost, wow. Make sure you look at this before you buy. About US$75 , and that’s the seniors price. Sssssooooo expensive and...More

    Went with my son (15) at 9 o’clock in the morning- went straight to box office who were so helpful (we hadn’t printed our electronic ticket from trip advisor! and they printed it for us). Straight into the lift and up (wow). Didn’t buy a...More

    Top of the Rock was well worth the $38 ticket price as you get fantastic views of NYC, including the Empre State to the south and Central Park to the north. After initially buying the ticket for lunchtime it started raining but the ticket office...More

    I've been up (and down) just once. They have a solid system worked out with a rather crammed elevator car but a very fast ride. There's a video/light show overhead to distract or excite you en route. Your ears will pop but... More

    We arrived at 10am & our time to go up was 10:25, your ticket gives you a time to go to the elevators... they wont allow anyone in the line before that specific time. Our line was small so i suggest getting there at 10
