"Great online prices."
September 2018
The reason I choose to book the tickets form here is great online price. You get the vouchers on the email and they can be redeemed any time at the counter. Sometimes ticket windows close due to rush but if you have a voucher they provide you tickets instantly and you are good to go. This part was great as I visited on Labor Day weekend.

Tip: This is not a fast pass and only voucher. You have to collect the tickets from counter

"Way too expensive for eeehhhh nothing!"
September 2018
You pay a hundred dollars to see the city from a building of which there are many more. Nothing is included, no drinks, not the pictures of 25 usd , nor the window that tilts 8 usd. Ridiculous. Save your money and go to a top floor for free somewhere else

Tip: Find a lift somewhere else and enjoy the view for free
