    Complete and utter ripoff innit? Most of these things are, but this is particularly so.
    £15 for Top of The Rock in NYC.
    £15 for Empire State (although £26 to go to the much smaller deck another 24 floors up)

    You can get almost as good a view from the top of the Heron tower or Tower 42 and that'll only cost you a (pricey) drink.

    And it's got slanty walls so you can't even jump to your death once you're up there.

    They think it'll be a big tourist attraction. Wonder how many will go for the cheaper option of the London Eye?

    Earlier this week I applied for a pair of free tickets to go up next Wednesday morning and I should find out today if I've been successful.

    I'll make sure I come on here to gloat if I win.

    Next Wednesday there will be blizzards and winds that will send you flying off the top to a horrible death below

    Gloat away, you'd need to pay me way more than £25 to even consider going up there!

    well since they haven't managed to rent out much of the office space within perhaps this will earn them a few coins. anyway, all that's missing from the shard's top is the eye of mordor.

    I'm going to buy a lottery ticket later, any help? Or do you just do weather? Wouldn't be bad actually, few days of being a millionnaire then a dramatic flight to my doom.

    I bet the lottery have bloody lengthy processing times though :mad:
    I think I'll decline that offer, if it's all the same to you... :hmm:

    Looking at the website, there are quite a few places sold out on the weekends of February already.

    Doesn't seem like the best weather to go up in The Shard anyway. Wonder if they'll close the outside bit near the top if it's snowing and/or high winds? I'd feel even more ripped off if I'd paid £25 and they closed the outside bit

    I wonder what speed you'd get up to if they built a slide around it, helter skelter style? :hmm:

    Wow that's expensive! Do you get a cup of tea or anything with that?
    There's a really tall tower here (not as tall as the Shard - only 238 metres versus the Shard's 308) - you have to pay about £6 to go to the top. I want to go but am waiting for a clear day.

    Minnie_the_Minx someinenhhanding menbag and me ah bollox

    Well it's up to the open air bit underneath the jaggedy bits, so no, it's not all the way to the top, but there's probably not a lot of sitting/standing room at the top unless you want to impale yourself

    I didn't see any concessions for OAPs or unemployed either. Maybe they're worried they're all too poor to afford it and those that got a ticket as present might jump off the top :hmm:
