Located at One World Trade Center, the One World Observatory is the tallest skyscraper in New York and the country. The views of southern Manhattan from its observation deck will take your breath away, making it one of the must-see sights on your trip to the Big Apple.
So,how much do tickets to the One World Observatorycost? Here's everything you need to know about the price so you can better calculate your budget.
1. How much does it cost to enter the One World Observatory?
To enjoy the fabulous views of Manhattan and surroundings from the One World Observatory, in the heart of Downtown, the standard ticket price for an adult is about 35 Euros in Hellotickets. This ticket at this price includes skip the line access and a cancellation option, something essential to take into account when organising your trip, as it will allow you to have more flexibility when making plans if something unforeseen arises.
With this ticket you will be able to access the three floors of the One World Observatory from where you will have wonderful detailed views of the southern Manhattan skyline and breathtaking panoramic views of the rest of the city: the World Trade Center, the Financial District, the Brooklyn Bridge, the Statue of Liberty or the Empire State Building, among other tourist attractions.
Don't forget that this is the tallest skyscraper in the Big Apple, so it will be one of the most enjoyable experiences of your trip - you'll have a bird's eye view of it all!
2. Do children pay to enter One World Observatory? How much does the children's ticket cost?
If you're travelling to New York with children and you're planning to go up to One World Observatory, you won't need to buy tickets if the kids are under 5 years old, as they get in for free. However, if your children are over 5 years old, they will need a ticket to enter the skyscraper, although there are reduced rates for them.
If you book them in Hellotickets, you can find tickets for children from 30€ and with a cancellation option, which is very interesting because when doing activities with children it can happen that there is an unexpected change of plans.
3. How can I save money on One World Observatory tickets?
Discounts to visit the One World Observatory are only available to members of the US military, police, fire and emergency medical services. Please note that this is a high-demand activity, so discounts and free admission are not usually available on a regular basis.
For all other visitors there are no discounts as such, but don't worry because if you want to save a little on your visit, there are reduced rates for certain age groups such as the over 65s and children aged 6-12.
In Hellotickets you can also buy your tickets at a reduced rate for these age groups from 30€ for children and 34€ for adults but with the advantage that you can cancel them, which is not possible on the One World Observatory website.
4. How much does it cost to go up to One World Observatory with a tourist pass?
With the New York Sightseeing Pass (from €122) you can go up to the One World Observatory on the day and time of your choice to enjoy the spectacular views of New York and you can also benefit from interesting discounts in restaurants and leisure activities in the city during your stay.
I recommend it if you want to get the most out of New York during your trip and not miss out on any of the fun. With the New York Sightseeing Pass you can choose between 1 and 10 days of validity to visit a number of tourist attractions and it also has the advantage that it can be cancelled.
Why choose the Tourist Pass?
There are a number of different sightseeing passes to explore the Big Apple, each with its own peculiarities and prices, but the great advantage they all have is that by paying a single 'flat rate' you can visit a lot of attractions, allowing you not only to control your budget (New York is an expensive city!) but also to save time by being able to enter the sites either without queuing or by going through the fast lane.
In case you want to use one of these tourist passes during your trip to New York but don't know which one to choose, I suggest you take a look at the article The Best New York City Tourist Card- it will help you make up your mind!
5. How much does it cost to get to One World Observatory?
The quickest and most convenient way to get to One World Observatory is by public transport, either by metro or bus, with a single ticket costing around 2.5 Euros.
However, there is an even cheaper way to get to the skyscraper and that is to walk if you are close to the area. Walking around New York is a joy, there is so much to see!
If you want to know what lines to take or what other means of transport will take you to this impressive viewpoint, I recommend reading this post on how to get to One World Observatory.
6. How much does it cost to eat at One World Trade Center?
If after going up to One World Observatory you liked the views so much that you'd like to stay a little longer, you can always take advantage of your visit to eat at One World Observatory's One Dine restaurant, which also has one of the best views in Manhattan.
However, if you prefer to eat outside the skyscraper and discover other cool places in New York, in the post Where to eat around the One World Observatory you will find some proposals near the observation deck (probably cheaper) and Ground Zero.
