Top of The Rock Observation Deck Reviews
The Top of the rock offers spectacular views of New York. We saw NY by night as all the day time slots had been booked despite us arriving before opening. We were not rushed and could take our time enjoying the view which was stunning. We would advise that if you want a daytime slot visit the Rock at least 24 hours ahead of time to book your preferred time slot.

Amazing experience ! Highly recommend !
Trevor Bibby reviewed Top of The Rock Observation Deck 07 Jan, 2023
Fabulous view, we entered at our assigned time but still had to wait at least 30 minutes to get taken to the top. The queue coming down was horrendous snd took almost an hour, but the views were spectacular. It would have been nice to be able to get a drink and a seat at the top, but there isn't anything like that, you are just kept moving apart from when you are on the exterior balconies

You can only get day tickets, you have to go there on the day to confirm a time. Would recommend going about 4-4:30 as the sun is going down for awesome pics
