Tour Details


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.

Know More about this tour

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 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 Caf, 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).

  • Absolutely brilliant. Don't miss

  • There was no thing as "skip the line". You have to pay $65pp extra to really skip the queue.

    Unfortunately, the place is totally commercialised, selling expensive, by cheap quality, tourist merchandise. Sad that it doesn't acknowledge the 9/11 event at all.

  • The staff was very friendly and helpful. The elevator ride was great, a must see. The views from the top were second to none, just great views in every direction, and lots of history. There are plenty of staff to help you learn about NYC. I highly recommend seeing One World Observatory.

  • The skip the line part was great, but i paid an additional 66 dollars for a VIP experience that did not happen nor was anyone at thee location aware of. So I over paid for the skip the line.

  • Excellent tour, the views are amazing. We timed our tour so we could get pictures in the day light and then when the lights came on in the evening. When you step out of the lift you are all lined up facing a screen, when this is removed the views are absolutely breath taking. This tour is a must.

  • Breathtaking views and very thoughtfully done.
    Well worth booking 'skip the line' ticket.

  • The view was amazing and the elevator ride was the funnest part of the tour. It was a little crowded and hard to see all the views but definitely worth seeing.

  • A must when in New York

  • The build has spaces designed for have beautiful views. Fantastic!

  • It was great. and high
