    Our Guide to Empire State Building Skip-the-Line Ticket

    No trip to New York would be complete without visiting the legendary Empire State Building, New York’s most iconic attraction and one of the world’s most recognised buildings. Soaring to nearly 1,500 feet above Manhattan, the Empire State Building has featured in numerous Hollywood productions including King Kong, An Affair to Remember and Sleepless in Seattle.

    The Empire State Building's 86th Floor Observatory offers some of the best 360° panoramic views of Manhattan and Beyond – on a clear day you can see for almost 80 miles, with five states in view - New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Connecticut and Massachusetts. The Observatory has a heated, glass-enclosed area, which is surrounded by an outdoor open-air terrace, equipped with high-power binoculars. Visit during the day and see the New York in all its glory or for a more romantic experience, visit at night and see the illuminated city sparkle.

    You will be sent an open-dated Empire State Building Observatory Ticket which can be redeemed at any time during your stay in New York, giving you the flexibility to plan around the weather and visit at any time of your choosing. The Empire State Building Observatory is open 8.00am to 2.00am throughout the year. The last elevator up is at 1.15am. 

    Your Empire State Building Observatory Ticket will enable you to move directly past the ticketing and voucher redemption queue at the entrance. However, you will still need to join the line for the elevator and mandatory security check. The elevator line can be long at peak times (normally 11.00am to 1.00pm, and one hour before and after sunset). If you wish to avoid the crowds, we recommend you visit outside these times.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    • Do I need to book a date or time when I visit the Empire State Building?
      No, you will be sent an open-dated barcoded gate ready Empire State Building Observatory Ticket – simply turn up at the time and date that suits your itinerary and the weather!
    • How do I receive my tickets?

    • Will I need to queue to get into the Empire State Building?
      With your barcoded gate ready Empire State Building Observatory Ticket in hand, you can bypass the main ticket/voucher line. This will typically save you up to 30 minutes waiting time. You will still need to queue to pass through security and for the elevator which will take you to the 86th Floor Observatory. Avoid peak times to keep the queuing time to a minimum - these are 11.00am to 1.00pm and one hour before and after sunset. Best time to visit is before 9.00am or after 11.00pm.
