The building is fantastic because it is very tall and it has lots of history , has a beautiful NY city panoramic view but I thin that it should have more toilets But is awesome

I worried we wouldn’t get a ticket as we hadn’t precooked but it was fine. We turned up 10am on a Thursday morning & walked straight in. It is expensive like everything in New York but the exhibition on the walk up to the observation tower are very well done. It is extremely busy once you get to the top with everyone scrambling to take photos. The queues to get back down in the elevators are much longer than the way up but the staff are helpful & polite and it is well organised.

This experience was more than just a view. Great interactive exhibit and really interesting walk through displays. Can highly recommend a trip to the top of the Empire State Building.

The Empire State Building is a must do for the first time visitor. This is not only a viewing as you go through a few floors of history and lots of celeb stuff. We timed it to be there for Sunset and it was magical. I cannot rate this highly enough. It isn’t the cheapest but it has to be done. In the height of the season I would imagine the queues are really bad, so the fast pass would be a good option if going for the sunset and other busy periods. If going out of season, don’t bother with the fast pass.

Beautiful view and great experience. I was there in a Sunday and I did not have to stay in line for much time.
