  • This was a very beautiful and magical place to be on Christmas night! The huge Christmas tree and all the decorations were breathtaking. Their was so many people every where, it would be easy to get lost in the huge crowd of people. Weekdays during the day are the best with the fewest crowds during this time the week prior to Christmas. Easily accessible by subway and walking. Close proximity to other attractions such as Times Square and Central Park. Everyone seemed to be content and happy to be there. This is definitely a 5 star place. I recommend going here if you ever have the opportunity .
  • Love coming here in winter! So magical and exciting. It’s fun to watch the people skating in the center and that tree! Wow what a tree. Make sure to stop by just so you can get a picture of it with your loved ones! The Lego store is right in the complex to so that’s always fun to visits! We look forward to coming back.
  • This is a beautiful and magical place to visit at Christmas season. The Christmas tree and decorations are very nicely decorated, nice to see day and night. You can easily get lost in the crowd. Can easily visit Rockefeller Center by foot or subway. It is close to Times Square and Central Park. Great photo opportunity at during the Christmas season. Iconic ice skating rink available to the public. I would highly recommend visiting while visiting NYC.

  • Could not get in last minute but decided to pay the VIP price to get in and skip the elevator lines. Though it was a bit pricey it was well worth it for a first timer that might of not got the chance to do it again. Incredible views that you won't see often. I'd love to see them add a zip lines from the top of the rock that ends in Central park! Hate me or Love me but that would be incredible :)
