What is there to do?

Start spreading the news, that there is a place where you can see incredible 360 degrees of New York City - it never sleeps, so there will always be something to explore!

At 70 stories up, you can look at one of the most iconic skyline from Top of the Rock Observation Deck. It's pretty impressive! When you arrive, you will climb into their high-speed shuttle that sends you zoom up to the sky! Make sure you spend some time at the multimedia history exhibits, where you can see all about the story of the Top of the Rock, and the Rockefeller Center itself!

Before you get off at the Mezzanine Exhibit, there is a theater where you can view a short video about the art and history of the Rockefeller Center too. 

Then, in less than a minute, you're at the top! It's also the ONLY 360 crystal clear view of New York City and beyond without obstruction. 

The 67th and 69th floors include fully transparent outdoor terraces. The 70th floor provides a completely open air, panoramic 360-degree view of the city!

Once at the top, it's not just the view that is there to entertain you! The Breezeway is where you can step into a room and be assigned a color, and lights of that color will follow your every move. Pretty cool!

So why not take a moment whilst in New York City, and see the city from a whole new angle! Who knows, from the top, you might spot your next family day out!
