It was easy, no line but didn't realize we needed reservations to restaurant to sit and eat, but they were kind and able to barely accommodate

The observation deck is the best view of the city, but the expense is fairly high for what amounts to walking around a room for 15 minutes. The 'skip the line' ticket simply allows you to go to a seperate line through security. After that, everyone is in the same line for the elevator, everyone is in the same line for the 'movie', everyone is in the same line to get through the mandatory picture area, and everyone is in the same line to get through the 'upsale' area where they try and sell you a tablet that explains what you are looking at (not sure how anyone with a smart phone thinks this is helpful). The trip is a continuous and unavoidable attempt to sell you additional services and products.
