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).

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!

For years, I had been wanting to visit the One World Trade Center and finally had the opportunity to. I purposely showed up to gauge how busy it was and when I saw the line, I decided to purchase the Skip-the-Line ticket online. It was well worth the few extra dollars for just myself. After a quick trip through security, I was in the elevator and speeding up to the 102nd floor in one of the fastest elevators in the world. It was quite an experience. Upon reaching the 102nd floor, everyone lined up to face a wall where a projection of NYC played for about a minute. The wall then retracted to show us the view immediately behind it which was breathtaking! From there, we were able to access the observation deck below as well as the restaurant, casual dining area, and gift shop. It's a very informative and well designed observation deck for all ages. The views of course will not disappoint. I expect to go back again in the future!

Excellent experience. If you want to see Manhattan from a lower Manhattan perspective - this is tour for you. As you travel in the elevator to the top, watch the walls because there is an ever changing display that visually chronicles the development of the island, from woodlands to the metropolis that it is today. That is followed by a 5 minute orientation display video that tells more of the story followed by a "reveal" of the city as the curtains rise and you perceive the vista that is Manhattan. You are then free to explore all sides of the enclosed observation level. "Chip the Line" visitors are given priority with regard to elevator rides up and down. Tour is a great bargain.

This is a most do in the City. Truly a celebration of humanity and our resilience. Wasn't sure what to expect and was not disappointed.

What a lovely evening, brought tickets for 5.00pm when it was daylight. By time we left it was dark so was able to take day and night photographs. Reserved a table for the one dine observatory restaurant, a bit pricey but worth it for a special evening. My husband had the best value meal of burger and chips. My parents and I had the chicken leg but still felt hungry afterwards. Had a lovely evening.

Today was an incredible day. The journey to the top was amazing. I have just gotten engaged the day before, so I was still nervous about our trip. The views were incredible and the atmosphere electric. I would not have wanted to spend the day anywhere else with my fiance. Thank you all for a memorable event.

The observatory facility design is great and provides wonderful views of NYC and the surrounding area. A must see for any first time visitor to NYC.

One World Observatory has some of the amazing views of NYC and I was happy that this time I had the chance to visit it. This was also the first time I used Viator services to buy tickets and I couldn't be more satisfied! The prices of the tickets here were cheaper than in the WTC site itself, offering skip the line tickets without extra fees, taxes or hidden values. When we arrived there, to start our visit, everything was really fast and the skip the line worked perfectly! For my next travels I will continue using Viator services, for sure!

This is a very well done tour and would recommend buying tickets in advance. The ticket line is very long is you don't buy before you arrive.
