It took three hours to get to the 80th floor (we began waiting in line at 4pm, and we got to the top around 7pm). I have to say, if you plan to take elderly parents, BUY THE EXPRESS PASS. It's gonna feel like it's worth it

Getting in with the Groupon was a little tricky as it wasn't clear how to use them, but the staff was very helpful scanning the codes. I've always found the price for the Empire State Building staggering in general. With the improvements to the building and the tour, it felt like it had more value and our family enjoying the interactive experience and history along the way to the elevators to the observation deck. It's super hot when waiting for the second elevator to the observation deck, but for a Saturday the line moved fairly well.

About Empire State Building

Bus tours and cab rides wind around New York City, shuttling out-of-town visitors from Central Park to the Brooklyn Bridge to Times Square to the Statue of Liberty—the Big Apple can seem too big to take in, especially all in one bite. The Empire State Building's observation deck brings NY natives and guests alike above the sprawling metropolis to the famous 86th floor, all for one sweeping view of the city. The site of dozens of famous movie and television scenes, the Observation Deck wraps around the building's spire for 360 degree views from the city's highest open air observatory.
