With your tickets to the Top of the Rock, skip the line and zip to the top of Manhattan's impressive observation deck at any time for sweeping views across the Big Apple. From Central Park to the Empire State Building, see it all from up in the air.
What to Expect
Enjoy views that stretch for miles from the Top of the Rock. Visit this New York City icon and learn about the history of the building through interactive displays and films.
With the country facing economic catastrophe and the world recovering from war, John D. Rockefeller’s vision for his center never wavered. Rockefeller Center and its observation deck were his gifts to Manhattan: a place for locals and visitors to marvel at the city he loved.
At the time of its construction, the Rockefeller Center was the largest private building project in modern history, a collection of buildings unrivaled in their artistry and Art Deco style.
Another perk? The flexible voucher redemption policy means you are not restricted to the date originally selected, so you choose when you'd like to see some of the Big Apple's best views! You can even plan around the weather to ensure you get the most spectacular views of New York City. If entrance is not available immediately, you will be given an entry time and your spot in the line will be held for you. It's as easy as that!

Know Before You Go
Please note: This ticket allows you to skip the Public General Admission Line - you may experience a wait in line at the Will Call/Guest Services window depending on the time of day and the season.
The local provider does not issue entrance times in advance. When you go to the box office, they will issue you a timed entrance based on availability. It is suggested that you go early in the morning or a few days in advance to receive your admission time as popular time slots can fill up quickly.
Although the average visit is 60 minutes, you are welcome to stay at the observation deck as long as you wish.
The last elevator to the observation deck departs at 23:00.
