    What to Expect What to Expect

    The Empire State Building is waiting for you day or night. Come watch the sunset as New York is bathed in warm orange, red and yellow tones, then stick around as the lights come on all over town. Or come later and listen to the live music (weekends only) as the stars and lights twinkle romantically. Whenever you come, enjoy the magic without the wait.
    There are 3 lines at the Empire State Building Observatory: the security line (required for all visitors), the ticket line and the elevator line. You may proceed directly to the turnstile with your voucher.
    VIP Express Experience Upgrade
    Speed past the lines on your way to the tallest point in Manhattan! Your VIP Express Experience voucher will enable you to proceed directly to the front of every line, saving valuable time to do all the other things New York is famous for. Don't spend your valuable holiday time waiting in line -- there's no faster way to the top of the Empire State Building!
    You'll be greeted on the second floor to redeem your pass pre-security, eliminating the need to redeem vouchers at the ticket office. You'll also receive a special wristband to identify you as a VIP Express Experience pass holder.
    VIP Express Experience passes are especially valuable from Memorial Day through Labor Day, from Thanksgiving until New Year's any time of day and all holiday weekends. Other times of year the pass is recommended for planned visits between 11am and 2pm, and one hour before and after sunset. Limited numbers of passes are sold, so typical wait time is under 5-minutes. Specific wait times cannot be guaranteed, only front of line privileges.
    Voucher can be redeemed within a year of date purchased - plan your visit around the weather!

    I was hesitant to pay for a VIP pass, but am VERY glad I did! We were able to get up to the observatory in about 10 minutes. As important, when we were finished looking at the stunning views, we were able to leave just as quickly (instead of waiting in the exit lines). I would definitely recommend paying for the VIP pass.

    The staff were really helpful when on the evening we had booked they advised us that, due to the thick fog we would not see anything and offered for us to return the following day, which we did and enjoyed a memorable time enjoying the New York skyline

    Amazing view of New York from the top of this iconic building. Fast Track tickets are definitely a must. We jumped all the queues. Breathtaking view of my most favourite place on the New York skyline, the beautiful, graceful and amazing Chrysler Building.

    We visited the Empire State building during the evening to see the night lights of New York and what amazing views we had. By having the skip the line tickets we were able to get up and down without waiting for ages which is the best tickets to book. The staff are great too and make sure you get through as quickly as possible. Definitely a must see :-
