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 experience to priority admission for skip-the-line access.

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).

We took our two adult children and three teenage grandchildren to visit and had an educational and fun time viewing and learning all about the sights, especially with the well worth rented tablet. We all would have liked the elevator to have ascended slower so we could read the description of the pictured areas which were being shown from years ago to present. Very enjoyable day and highly recommend.

First time user of this service so wasn't quite sure what to expect. Pleasantly surprised as my tickets were provided upon payment and I printed and presented to the One World Observatory admission with absolutely no problem what so ever. Having a smooth process made the trip and experience perfect. Highly recommend this service.

Breathtaking views. Well worth it. Still a bit confused about how they time admissions as you get the time when you pay for the ticket but all ran smoothly. Try and allow time for a drink in the bar with a view over the very tiny Statue of Liberty below. Able to see over Ground Zero and a good thing to do after looking around the memorial. Easy to get to on the Metro.

This was amazing, the views were exceptional. Although the renting of the iPad was 15 to view what all the surrounding buildings were it was well worth it! Such a humbling experience and a beautiful building, such a fitting tribute.I would highly recommend this.
