As many reviews state, this actually gives a better view than the Empire as you get the empire in the skyline. Very well organised visit and souvenirs aren't too pricy

Great attraction. Magnificent view over The Big Apple. But it is a bit expensive though. Almost 40 USD to get up and take some photos. Well worth it though.

Great view but I recommend much more the Rainbow Room since you don’t have to pay to enter, you just make a reservation through OpenTable and have some drinks and can stay as long as you want!

There were people using selfie sticks when we were there so as long as it's hand held and not needing to be put up in a space as a tripod would I would think it's ok but maybe try and call/ email them to check.

Yes, all done on the phone, via their website. And there’s no need to collect or print; you’ll get an e-ticket on your email with a QPR code which the staff scan at the door.
