Description:

Visit: One World Observatory, 285 Fulton St One World Trade Center, New York City, NY 10007-0089

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 kilometers). 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 a priority combo ticket to skip all the lines with Priority Access security line and Express elevator to the top, Priority exit from the Observatory and access to the One World Explorer - the virtual guide iPad. Need more flexibility? Upgrade to the All-Inclusive Flex Admission to arrive anytime on your selected travel date, receive all the upgrades of a Priority Combo ticket plus enjoy a beverage at the top!

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).

A wonderful view of New York. Informative, and interesting. The I-PAD is a fantastic extra that I highly recommend. We spent over an hour enjoying every minute. WHAT A CITY!

A definitely must see and do when in NYC! The elevator ride was too cool and the views are incredible with so many photo ops. It was surreal just knowing that this magnificent building stands in defiance of the diabolical terrorists who tried and failed to break the American spirit on 9/11! I recommend going to the top with the skip the line tickets - it's well worth it.

Fantastic experience with incredible views. We were reallocated the ticket due to poor visibility the day before. All staff were incredibly attentive and helpful. A must do on your New York trip

This was my 2nd visit to this incredible place...The first time our adventure included two Moms and their two Daughters. It was cloudy and a bit rainy that day! There was no line because of the weather...but we went anyway! I am so glad we did! When we ascended rapidly to the Observatory level we enjoyed the place to ourselves and the clouds disappeared. You could look straight diown to the ground and what a sight it was! We enjoyed a unique clear view with a layer a clouds below. We ate an early dinner up there without crowds. This last time my husband and I invited two friends. It was their first visit to NYC. Everyone agreed the WTC and 9/11 was the highlight of our NY stay. Amazing place ...not to be missed!

Really good attraction. Eat and drink before you go. Food and drink very expensive at the restaurant and bar at the top.

Skip the line, and reservations for dinner is the best was to enjoy it. Our German relatives were blow away by the experience.

skip the line is not working mostly. You always have to go in line before you enter the elevator. Even when you go down and even when you have a time block!! The view is very very beautifull!!!

Unfortunately I was underwhelmed by this observatory. The only guide you have is an Ipad that you have to pay an additional $15 for and even then it was difficult to follow. I just expected so much more.

I don’t know if it was because of the holiday or what, but the folks there were less than impressed, I still had to wait on a line.
