Visited today as part of our Grayline tour of New York City. Did not have to wait long at all, moved pretty quickly, interesting short film to watch whilst you wait. All staff were extremely polite, friendly and helpful, accommodated us with a young child in a stroller. View from the top was great, we were blessed with a beautiful clear day. I have previously done Empire State Building and believe this to be a better option if you only want to do one. There is an opportunity to have your photo taken, to buy the photographs, it is $25 for one, or around $55 for three. An enjoyable experience and a great view.

The Top of the Rock Observation Deck didn't disappoint, providing the best views of the Central Park and the Empire State Building. We used a City Pass and skipped the short queue - great experience.

Great views and good prices compared to Empire State building which were higher. Very well organized and a lot of security

The Top of the Rock is a must view when you are visiting NYC. You can see the Central Park, the Chrysler Building, the Empire State and lots of other icons of New York from the top of the Rock. The store is cool but could have more options. You should definitely avoid going on weekends and afternoons. Long waiting lines, the thing is just too successful during holiday season. However, it worth to climb up.

It took 45 mins to get up the top, what with the que's, but it was worth it. I went up on the 20.45 lift. The lights of New York looked stunning. Well worth the wait to get up the top.
