“Great View and smaller Queue then Empire states”
Reviewed 7 May 2012

Definitely worth a trip up the top of the rock, gives you a different view of the city than the empire states building but not as crowded

“High above the clouds”
Reviewed 7 May 2012

This was a great experience even tho it had been damp and cloudy all day which meant we were in fact the only 2 along with the guards at the very top of the Rock. On the 70th floor outside we were actually above the clouds which made for a surreal experience - definitely recommend the place

“Breath taking views.”
Reviewed 7 May 2012

The views at the top of the rock are amazing. You look out and see the famous skyline that you have seen in films and television. On the way to the top of the rock there are photo opportunities and these are fun and great mementos. The security guards at the top of the rock are friendly and happy to catch about their city. One of the ones that we got chatting to gave us ideas of place to visit throughout the city.
