Rockefeller Center Unveils Exciting Additions and Attractions

Jun 4, 2024

Discover the latest buzz emanating from the iconic Rockefeller Center! Whether you’re a first time or repeat visitor, there’s something new and noteworthy awaiting you amidst this cultural landmark.

Last December marked the opening of the Beam, a daring new addition to your list of must-dos in New York City. The Beam, a new experience at Top of the Rock, invites visitors to recreate “Lunch Atop a Skyscraper”, the iconic 1932 photo depicting 11 ironworkers lunching precariously on a steel beam, 69 stories high, during the construction of 30 Rockefeller Plaza. Follow in their fearless footsteps by buckling up for an exhilarating, 12-foot ascent that rotates a breathtaking 180-degrees. Here you’ll experience astonishing views of NYC’s famous Central Park and beyond. Please note the Beam has a minimum height requirement of 52” and children must be accompanied by an adult.

Late last year also marked the opening of the Weather Room at Top of the Rock. When it comes to quintessential New York, there’s no beating Top of the Rock, with its spectacular, views of the city in all her cinematic glory. Only now there’s even more to savor: The newly opened Weather Room invites visitors to rendezvous in the clouds. Named after the Doppler radar that once sat atop the roof of 30 Rockefeller Plaza, The Weather Room pairs Top of the Rock’s sweeping cityscapes with elevated, locally-sourced casual fare like artisanal sandwiches, mezze plates, and French and Italian pastries. From 9 am to midnight, The Weather Room Bar & Café promises an only-in-New York respite for those who like to graze while they gaze: enjoy a cappuccino overlooking Central Park or a baguette while casting your sights on the Brooklyn Bridge. The Weather Room is the perfect place to grab a delicious bite paired with a breathtaking view.

Opening this Summer, an entire new experience awaits you with our completely reimagined Mezzanine Exhibit at Top of the Rock. Immerse yourself in the captivating story of Rockefeller Center through stunning murals, a mesmerizing projection-mapped model, and an unforgettable theater show.

The last piece of Rockefeller Center’s exciting redevelopment will be arriving in October 2024. Be raised an additional 30-feet above the observation decks and experience a mesmerizing panorama from Skylift, NYC’s only completely unobstructed 360-degree viewpoint. At Rockefeller Center, the sky is not the limit, but only the beginning of an unparalleled adventure.

We look forward to welcoming your groups soon to Rockefeller Center!
