Experience Highlights

Ever wonder what it would be like to stand on top of the tallest building in New York City? Or maybe the tallest building in America? Well, now’s your chance.. Get ready to live large by feeling both tall and small at the same time. The One World Observatory is really high in the sky, over 500 meters to be exact, making it the seventh tallest building on the planet. Located at the top of One World Trade Center, the Observatory really should be called Wow, because that’s what you’ll say when you stand on the viewing edge, taking in what seem like infinite vistas. With this ticket you get mind blowing photo opportunities, the bragging rights of being on top of the world, plus: 

  • The ability to skip the queues and go straight to the security checkpoint. Did someone say VIP? 
  • A virtual menu of spectacular 360º views from the 100th, 101st and 102nd floors.
  • An adrenaline rush as the Skypod lifts take you from street level to 100 floors up in less than 60 seconds. 
  • And a front row seat to learn about the evolution of this incredible city, told with spectacular multimedia content including videos, projections, and interactive experiences with screens. 

What’s included

  • The ticket gives you entrance to the One World Observatory and queue-free access

Select date and time

Keep in mind you need to arrive 15 minutes before start

Step by Step

Make sure to book a ticket for a specific date and time, which then allows you to skip the line and go right through Security. Once on the other side, enter a Skypod and let it shoot you to the moon, or in this case, 100 floors up in less than sixty seconds. Hold on tight. 

When you arrive at the Observatory, you will be welcomed by incredible 360 panoramas of the very Big Apple. With multiple and massive high definition video screens, you’ll also learn about the remarkable history of Manhattan’s development over the centuries, and the much shorter but no less interesting history of One World Trade Center’s construction. The See Forever Theater on the 102nd floor delivers a stunning two minute video capturing New York’s history via time lapse photography, leaving you with a sense that it all happened before your eyes.  

Throughout your visit to the One World Observatory, staff members of City Pulse are on hand should you have questions or need help with anything.
