GARBAGE WASTE OF TIME!
For $121.00 (2 adults, 2 kids) we were herded into a room to be force fed ads for their other attractions and then shuffled into a room for a short and lousy video with not one scintilla of interesting information.
SAVE YOUR MONEY, DON'T GO.
There is absolutely no reason to ever ride the Skyride at the Empire State Building. The E.S.B. itself is very cool. We totally enjoyed the view, even with long summer lines (June 2008). But the high pressure sales to do the Skyride got our kids' attention, they convinced Dad, even though I said, "Why? We're in N.Y.C. We can see the stuff live. Why see a movie about it?" Over $100 dollars later for the 5 of us, we were all disappointed, I was in a total "I told you so" attitude and even the kids were flabbergasted at the hype after a less-than-impressive show. I beg you (if I save only one person from the extreme waste of money, my time will have been worth it) -- don't do the Skyride, and tell everyone you know traveling to NYC not to do it either. Spend your money on a great slice of pizza, a $12 boat rental in Central Park, a taxi ride, a carriage ride, anything other than the Skyride. The kicker - the promised free t-shirt that the kids used to convince Dad it was worth it -- doesn't come in kid sizes and can be purchased for $3 in any gift shop in NYC.

there is really nothing to see. all you do is see the top ten sites to visit in NYC, then you sit in the room with the movable seats that jerk you around as you look at the TV screen. only lasts 10 minutes for 30$ so why bother? however, if you have the NYC pass then this is free so maybe give it a try if you got the time.
Shelly's is the utterly impressive brainchild of owner Shelly Fireman, occupying an entire building on West 57th Street. It is
certainly a step up from the theme restaurants that line the block. There are multiple rooms, including a terrace, ...
