New York's famous Empire State Building, a New York City and a National Historic Landmark, soars more than a quarter of a mile into the atmosphere above the heart of Manhattan. Located on the 86 th floor, 1,050 feet (320 meters) above the city's bustling streets, the Observatory offers panoramic views from within a glass enclosed pavilion and from the surrounding open-air promenade.
Conveniently located on the second floor of the Empire State Building, the NY SKYRIDE is fast becoming one of the best attractions in New York and a must see item in any itinerary. As the only virtual tour simulator in the city, the SKYRIDE takes you on an aerial NYC tour unlike any other. Join actor Kevin Bacon for a fun adventure where you can feel the sights of New York in special HD theaters equipped with state of the art motion seats and platforms and an 18 ft/6 meter high style screen.
