Arrive at the ice rink at 8:30am and head inside the heated VIP chalet. The area is draped in garlands and festive lights to give it a welcoming feel. Kids can play on the carpeted floors as adults mingle. When it’s your turn to hit the ice, a concierge can help you and your group put on your ice skates. First timers can take advantage of a short lesson on how to turn, twirl and stop.
On the ice, soak up the holiday spirit as people swirl around you. Stop along the railing to admire the bronze-gilded Prometheus and fountain, as well as the famed Rockefeller Center Christmas tree standing some 100 feet (30 meters) tall.
If you need a break, hop on and off the ice to warm up in the chalet like a true VIP. Once you finish ice-skating, take advantage of your admission to the Top of the Rock. An elevator lifts you to the 70th story for amazing city views, both inside (if you want to stay warm and cozy) and out, with three viewing decks if you choose to brave the elements. Marvel at the winter cityscape below as you finish creating your new favorite holiday memory.

Viator VIP was a perfect choice. The chalet down on the ice level was the place to be for hot chocolate, water and cookies when our girls wanted a break. My husband did not skate so he waited in a nice warm place. At one point we needed help with fitting out skates and the staff was ready to help and very pleasant. I am not a great skater, but this was a thrill I will never forget. The trip to the Top was great as expected. Too bad we needed to exchange our white VIATOR passes for Top tickets first, but at least this line went quickly. I would definitely recommend this tour package to anyone.
