Amazing view!!

Great way to get speedy service, by pre-purchasing your ticket. Top of the Rock is one of my favorite vantage points to view the city from. I have been there many times, always buying tickets in advance. Unlike the Empire State Building perspective, the observatory offers you an amazing view of Central Park. I loved the open air feel; you really are in the heart of the city!


Worth it, for sure!

This was a great experience! I went with my 81 year old mom, who was treated like a queen. The staff there recognized our need to avoid stairs and went beyond to ensure a wonderful visit! We reserved a ticket time slot for Saturday night at 7:20 & had a great experience. There is so much to see and the more you look around, the more things you notice. The views are spectacular!
