A trip to New York wouldn't be complete without two things - pizza, and a trip to the top of the Empire State Building. Skip the line to Manhattan's most famous skyscraper, and bypass all queues inside. Check out the exhibits, walk around the 86th-floor Observatory, and see from above what makes New York the greatest city on the planet!
The Empire State Building stretches 102 stories into the sky, but don't just stand in its shadow on Fifth Avenue. Skip the line and get straight to the good stuff!
With this Express Entry ticket, you can stroll right through the newly renovated Art Deco lobby and take the elevator up to the Observatory. On the way, check out the Sustainability exhibit - a look at how they've made the building much more eco-friendly. See the Dare to Dream exhibit and learn about the building's history, engineering, and construction. You'll get straight into all these exhibits and more – a must for the queue-phobic!
Go early and soak up those Manhattan views. See the tiny people in Central Park, or go at night and watch the sunset. New York, New York, a city so nice they named it twice!
