    What to Expect
    Visit: One World Observatory, 117 West Street 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).

    Tickets purchased by me says skip line, but in there they didn’t allow me to utilize those features. Please take care of them in future which won’t affect other customers from you. Otherwise they will also face this like me and provide bad reviews.

    I can't mark it down for bad weather, but we couldn't have picked a worse time to reserve our ticket for as a freak storm passed over! The visibility was really poor but that can't be helped. Love the elevator ride up and the surprise after. I am not sure what the normal lines

    My wife and I bought our "automated" tickets for the Kiosk and waited for assigned time to be admitted. The elevator ride was fast and did a Video of "time going by" that was interesting. It really was too fast...and could have included more building and historical info as you

    Honestly, I was thinking more things could be done at the time I reached the top floor. But just in 20 minutes I could finish my visit, because nothing else but the city view from the top during night. That is all, a poor excuse to get money from people who wants to have a cool

    Definitely worth a visit when you're in New York. We especially enjoyed the elevator ride, which was much too short!, and the views were breathtaking. I'm glad we bought a skip-the-line ticket. There was a good little informative talk available, should you choose to stop and
