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.

    Worth doing just for the view of Central Park. So many people so it takes a while to get up there and you have to go through security but then you can stay as long as you want. Can see for miles and gives you...More

    Choosing to do this over the empire state building was definitely a decision I don't regret, you can see the whole city, we went at sunset and I guarantee it was the best time to go. We booked quite last minute which could be the...More

    It was raining the day I went up there. But I still enjoyed the view a lot. Not a lot of travelers that day. It is a great place to view the entire Manhattan landscape.

    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
