Overview

There are a million things to experience in New York City, but this is one in a million. The One World Observatory is the latest and greatest Big Apple attraction. Located at the top three floors of the One World Trade Center, which is now the tallest building in the western hemisphere, the observatory boasts jaw-dropping views of Manhattan and its surrounds. With this admission ticket, you'll have access to all three Observatory floors for a memorable experience that offers fabulous photo ops, New York City history, and dining options to buy food or drinks high in the sky.
Choose to upgrade your standard admission ticket to priority admission with express and expedited VIP entry straight to the top!

What You Can Expect

When you arrive at One World Trade Center in Lower Manhattan, hop in a Sky Pod (aka elevator) and arrive on the 102nd floor in less than 60 seconds. The Sky Pod provides a virtual time-lapse experience so you can see how New York City has changed over the centuries.
If you thought the elevator ride was cool, you'll be blown away by the One World Observatory's vantage point, which on a clear day, provides a sight line of about 50 miles (80 km). Watch a video about the making of the 1,776-foot-tall (540-meter) skyscraper, and then look out the panoramic windows for one-of-a-kind New York City views. Upgrade your experience to priority admission and have your own VIP expedited entry to bypass the general admission lines. 

At the See Forever Theater, see time-lapse photos and aerial imagery during a unique 2-minute video presentation, and then check out the the Main Observatory on the 100th floor, where you can step onto a 14-foot-wide (4-meter) disc in the floor and look down for an incredible perspective of real-time, high-definition footage of Manhattan's streets. And don't leave without stopping by City Pulse, an interactive experience that connects visitors with New York's landmarks and neighborhoods.

When you're hungry, you can head to the 101st floor for a bite to eat (own expense). Options include pastries and fresh sandwiches at One Café, small plates and artisanal cocktails at the bar One Mix, and high-end food and wine that matches the stunning view at One Dine (reservations required at One Dine).

Observatory was everything we hoped it would be. Great views of all the surrounding areas - could see for miles. Fortunately the weather was clear. The whole experience was really well done. The Priority skip the line option was definitely worth the extra charge. We went on a weekend and there were long lines, but we got right in without having to wait. We really enjoyed it.

Try and go later in the afternoon as the sun on the glass reflects and you can't take good photos as good. Also they have WiFi so you can do things like Facebook live so take your phone. Sun glasses are a good idea as on a sunny day it's hard to see out the window

If you do one thing in Manhattan, absolutely do this. This is the tallest building in the Western Hemisphere, and fourth tallest building in the world standing at 1776 ;-0;. My advice, don't wear white or bright colors. They reflect off the glass and pictures won't turn out as good.

Ordered the tickets on line and was able to walk right past the LONG ticket line and straight to the line that was starting the tour. We booked an evening time and was given a 7 pm time slot. You can stay in the observation area as long as you like. There is also a restaurant and snack/drink area. We marveled the views, had dinner, and viewed the same areas again, but this time all of the NY city lights were on--just beautiful!!
