A unique experience. We went 1 hour before dusk around 6:00 pm and so we could take advantage of the day and night views, we saw the sun go down and it was incredible. We do not expect queues.

Empire State Building Ticket

Climbing to the top of the Empire State Building, in the heart of New York, is an unparalleled and unique experience for all travellers visiting New York City. In its day, it was the winner of the "race into the sky", as 40 Wall Street and the Chrysler building were being built at the same time, and each one vied for the title of world's tallest building. 

The Empire State Building was the tallest building in the world for some forty years, and Its impressive 86th-floor observation deck that stands 1,047 Ft (320 m) tall is thanks to this "race into the sky". Upon seeing that the Chrysler Building would beat the Empire State for height, thanks to its steel spire, five extra floors were added, including the 86th floor observation deck.

Today this is a glass-enclosed and an outdoor open-air terrace from where you’ll be able to enjoy panoramic views of Central Park, Brooklyn Bridge, the Chrysler Building and the Statue of Liberty, among many other renowned landmarks.

What’s more, you’ll be able to visit the 2nd floor and 80th floor exhibits, featuring exciting, artistic exhibits and an opportunity to create a customized NYC itinerary!

New Interactive Attractions

On the 29th of July 2019, the second phase of the Empire State Building Observatory Experience was inaugurated, aiming to create even more unforgettable moments. This experimental journey takes visitors through the construction of the building up to its current status as a pop culture icon.

You'll also find a replica of the original structure, the technology which moves the elevators within the skyscraper, and much much more. And 72 screens with 180 degree immersive sound show adverts, films, tv shows, comics and games in which the mythical building has featured - and you'll even be able to high five King Kong himself, with 4D elements making it the closest you can possibly get to the giant ape!
