A few minutes wait time while people took pictures. Worth the wait. You don't have to climb the steps for a picture.

If you like movies then this is a must-see. The statue is merely representational but visitors who love the Rocky movies should see this,

Line wasn't long. We went on a Thursday. First time in Philly. I was so happy to get to see this. Had to walk a good bit to get to see it but it was worth it

Thankfully I got to see this early (930ish). Huge queue by midday. Just to see a nondescript statue ? Quite right that Philly makes the most of this. Worth having a photo taken but not that impressive.

For those of us brought up on the Rocky and now the Creed film franchises this is a must for a photo op The only thing that truly baffles me is how little Philadelphia promotes this place? It's a truly iconic place with countless tourists...More

Of course, I am a Rocky fan so I had to see the statue while in Philly. Although the statue is of a fictional character, it is such a positive symbol of victory. The crossing lights are on a different pattern so crossing the street...More
