Cancellation policy
  • For a full refund, cancel at least 24 hours in advance of the start date of the experience.
What to expect
  • Make your own way to the Empire State Building, located on Fifth Avenue between 33rd and 34th streets, between 8am and 7:59pm—the validity period of your morning ticket. Arriving early means you’ll have far less chance of encountering long lines. On arrival, head to the ticket window on the second floor to exchange your paper voucher for a pass. Following a security screening, you’ll board a high-speed elevator destined for the 86th floor of the landmark. From the open-air observation deck, you’ll drink in 360-panoramas of the Big Apple, including the iconic Manhattan Skyline, Central Park, Times Square, and the Statue of Liberty.   Exit the monument at your convenience and then return between the hours of 9pm and 10pm (last elevator leaves at 9:15pm) to see the City That Never Sleeps illuminated by night.  Under the cloak of darkness, New York bursts into a riot of neon-lit color and appears to be a completely different city. Once you’ve had your fill of panoramic views, make your own way to your intended destination. Please note both tickets must be used the same calendar day by the same customer.

Great experience!
So beautiful at night. Glad we did this in the evening! You could see the entire city and the lights were spectacular. Very romantic…. we saw people getting engaged. All of the kids ages 7 - 14 loved the experience both before riding the elevator up and once we got upstairs. The observation deck was very windy. Hold on to your hats and masks! So fun.

Scam
Oct 2021 • Couples
Complete scam. Had tickets for the nighttime viewing for 9-9:15pm. Showed up at 9:10 to see the doors locked and closed. Wouldn’t even explain to us why they closed. The man at the front desk wouldn’t even talk to us. I’ve lived by NYC my whole life and was excited to do this for the first time. Wasted $95 for nothing. Don’t respect this place one bit for doing this. Absolute scam, not going to try again.

Thank you Frank

The views are incredible, but the people working their were even better. I want to give a special shout-out to Frank, who works at the Empire State Building. He went out of his way to chat with us, make us feel welcome and give us local recommendations. He even introduced us to Tony, the guitar player at the top! We left buzzing with positive energy after talking with Frank!!! Give that man a raise or at least a high 5. Frank- if you see this, a huge thank you!!! From Jack & Tessa in Seattle.

Oct 2021 • Family
Thursday was a special day! Early afternoon we went to the Empire State Building which was amazing! We had purchased tickets online for a double whammy, the 86th and 102nd floors! We got in line outside including only 5 people in front of us. When we entered the building, there were probably 10. Now, here’s a spoiler alert! If you plan on visiting one day, I don’t want you to go any further so it won’t ruin the surprises!

Here goes! We walked a path that showed the magnificent history of the construction and milestones. There were tremendous wall-length pictures of celebrities on the observation deck, really cool! We made it to the elevators that you see in all the movies - wow! Up we go! Or, are we? It’s so smooth, it feels like we’re not even moving! Oh, and the movie on the ceiling welcoming you to the construction of each floor was a very nice touch! I mean, we had 80 floors to travel! We exited the elevator and are met with an attendant directing us to a hallway which led to a museum-like area, a neat display of signs on the ceiling providing directional signs to major landmarks in the city - love it! It’s all such a blur, but I believe this is where we got our photo taken with the city background! What a wonderful momento!. Cool stuff! We ended up on an elevator again and headed to the 86th floor observation deck. We walked outside and took some pictures; it was amazing to see the East and Hudson Rivers on either side of us merging! The Chrysler building and Freedom Tower look so small from up here!! Central Park a small patch of green - wow is all I can say! We met a nice couple from San Diego who were enjoying the experience too - I helped by taking their picture overlooking the city. Tara had done it for two friends right before that! I know they appreciated it! So, off to the next ride - the 102nd floor. We ended up at the very tip of the Empire State Building, a small observation room that was encased in windows. An outstanding 360 degree panoramic view of the city and beyond! The attendant whose son is a NY firefighter told us which direction to look for New Jersey, the mountains of Pennsylvania and much much more! Breathtaking! We saw the engineers’ access to the outside and the stairs to walk all the way down to 5th Avenue! I bet you didn’t know there were 1,869 steps from the top of the Empire State Building to the bottom! I sure am glad the elevator didn’t fail!

A trip to the top of the Empire State Building
This was one of the best thrilling experiences I could possibly have in New York City. If you come to the big Apple, you’ve gotta check out the Empire State Building at least once. Especially since you can go very high to the observation deck and get a spectacular view of the New York Skyline. I loved it here and I hope to visit again soon! Maybe I’ll try going to the very top to the 102nd floor observation deck. I totally recommend this for everyone especially those not scared of heights.

Do it!

I was nervous going all the way up to the top of the building, but it was amazing, and I totally encourage everyone to do it! Renita, the fantastic person at the top, saw my ashen face and gave me the courage to go all the way to the window. I can't say enough good things about her, she's amazing. Plus we now have a fantastic family photo of all of us with New York in the background!

Stunning Views & Rude Staff
This was my 3rd time going to the 86th Observatory of the Empire State and I’ve never had an experience quite like this one. My family arrived about 15 minutes early and had our tickets scanned outside and we were told to go ahead and enter the building. We went inside where there were a few other groups waiting. No staff were present and we all waited another 10 minutes or so. Eventually we tried scanning our tickets at the kiosk in the lobby. After a few more minutes the elderly gentleman who scanned our tickets outside came in screaming that he didn’t know why we were still down in that area when we were supposed to go up. We had not received any instruction on what to do at the door, nor had the other groups. The staff on the upper levels were more helpful and the views were spectacular.

I don’t think the disorganized, chaotic experience was worth $300+ and maybe the rude employees shouldn’t be the one’s greeting guests.
