Full description
Take in a 360-degree panorama of New York from 850 feet (260 m) in the air at the Top of the Rock. See the city sparkle by night or enjoy the sun rising from new heights. Exchange your open ticket for a timed ticket of your choice upon arrival.

Upon arriving at 30 Rockefeller Center, take time to admire the stunning, shimmering Swarovski chandelier on your way to the mezzanine level. Here is an exhibit where you can see historic artifacts and a short film about Rockefeller Center’s construction during the Great Depression.

Head up to the Top in less than 1 minute with a ride up 850 feet (260 m) on the Sky Shuttle. Explore 2 floors with expansive indoor and outdoor viewing areas. Finally top off your visit with breathtaking views of Central Park, Empire State Building, downtown Manhattan, One World Trade Center, and multiple bridges from the completely open-air deck on the 70th-floor.

Another perk? The flexible voucher redemption policy means you are not restricted to the date originally selected, so you choose when you'd like to see some of the Big Apple's best views (up to 1 month either side of your original scheduled ticket date). You can even plan around the weather to ensure you get the most spectacular views of New York City. If entrance is not available immediately, you will be given an entry time and your spot in the line will be held for you. It's as easy as that.

This time it should be top of the rocks in the day. If you're lucky, go to the Rockefeller Center to see what time is feasible. We were there at 10.30 in the morning and you still have to exchange the voucher for tickets. But that worked without any problems, so we were incredibly lucky with few people in front of us, if we waited 5 minutes, and off we went. So because you still have to exchange tickets, you should leave early in the day, otherwise you will be in the eternal beats at the ticket counter. And Top of the Rock, madness again, Manhattan in bright sunshine, fantastic.

Best viewing platform in New York! This voucher must be redeemed for a ticket - it is best to go there and get the ticket on the first day. The ticket is then for a certain day and a certain time, where there are no longer any waiting times. Spontaneously does not work here.

We hadn’t realised that once you arrive you have to queue with everyone else to get allocated an actual time. We arrived at 3.30pm queued for 30 mins to then be told first available slot was 6.25pm! If we had known this was the system we would have gone earlier so we could pick a time ( we wanted to go up when it was light and then get the sunset and the night sky). The experience itself is excellent and Christmas Eve was bound to be busy but if we had known then our initial frustration could have been avoided.
