The Top of the Rock
New York, United States of America
Quite simply the best views of New York City. Visit during the day and see the skyline in all its brilliance or go up at night and witness the city sparkle. And yes, the views are better than the Empire State Building!
The 70th Floor of the Rockefeller Center re-opened to rave reviews after renovations a few years ago and offers stunning views over the Big Apple. The stylish open air observation platform dates back to the 1930s and offers unmatched views of New York City. Nowhere else in Manhattan (including the observation deck of the Empire State building) can you experience the same unobstructed 360° views of the city, plus you can also enjoy great views of the Empire State Building itself. Other highlights include wonderful views of Central Park and a fascinating exhibit detailing the history of this extraordinary building.
Lifts to the Observation deck run between 8am and 11pm most days of the year.
By pre-purchasing your Top of the Rock tickets with us, you can by-pass the public queuing system. Simply present your pre-paid voucher at the special street-level V.I.P. voucher-exchange desk to virtually eliminate the need to queue at all! Just request the time you would like to visit – either immediately or at a later time of your choice.
Alternatively, tickets can also be bought directly online at: www.rockefellercenter.com. Once you have purchased your tickets either go to the Will Call desk which is at the entrance to the Top of the Rock on 50th Street between 5th & 6th - present your booking reference and the credit card with which you booked your tickets and they will print your tickets out. If you have been able to print off your tickets in advance then go straight to the pre-show exhibit on the mezzanine level. Your bags will have to pass through a security scan.
