As this was our second visit we decided to visit on an evening to see a different side of the city, and it was included in our New York Pass. Was not impressed that our tiny travel tripod for camera was confiscated at security which meant many blurred shots of the city when trying to use night modes on cameras. Did the sky ride as it was included in our pass but would not have paid for it. Paid the extra to go to the 102nd story which was nice as a lot less crowded but to be honest you couldn't see a whole lot more than you could from the 86th floor. If visiting NYC then I would try to visit this it at least once but try to visit top of the Rock as well, though if you are time restrained I would recommend that over this a heartbeat.
