interesting building, but the patio area was smaller than I imagined, so a much smaller ice rink than it looks in the films. Busy at most times of the day, but great to watch the world go by. I didn't actually go to the top, maybe next time.

Buy the VIP Ticket! It is worth it! My teenage daughter and I went on a Friday night at 6:30. We loved the service in the VIP Igloo (which included hot coco and cookies!). We skated for over an hour in 19 degrees and had the time of our lives! The music was fabulous and the Guys on the ice... More

Rockefeller Center is a beautiful place to see and experience. We just loved watching everyone young and old ice skating. t was very busy and very difficult to get pictures but people are fairly patient and helpful. Didn't really know about this attraction so I was pleasantly surprised! A great atmossphere and definately worth the time to visit.....

The Christmas decorations and atmosphere here are fun! The huge tree and decorations are what you need to get you in the mood for Christmas. The ice rink is well known here and a lot smaller than my daughter expected and more enclosed. There is a nice viewing area from above and it is a great place to people watch.... More

We came to visit right before Christmas so all of the decorations were up. The tree and all of the lights really were beautiful but it was ruined by all of the people. I know New York is crowded but this area was the worst we hit. We could barely move, people were bumping into us and by the time... More

Certainly most beautiful at Christmas, the Rock is still a delight any day of the year. You can find pretty much anything your heart desires within its floors. Most fun to eat h ice skating and the elevators to see if Jimmy Fallon exits!

This is a great building, one by don was desperate to visit, the views from the top are spectacular can see for miles, the facilities are excellent, we bought our tickets then went off for breakfast first, the Rockefeller looks amazing at night all in lights.

We enjoyed this site very much since the whole area was adorned with traditional Christmas decorations. It was very cold, but we took our time looking around. We also spent time in the Metropolitan Museum shop and found some great things!
