Our guide to One World Observatory Combination Ticket

As well as enjoying skip-the-line priority access to New York's spectacular One World Observatory, this  One World Observatory ticket also includes the One World Explorer, a virtual iPad guide to assist you at every view point on the 100th floor.

After entering through the Priority Access point, start your unique One World Observatory experience by boarding a Sky Pod elevator and ascending to the top of the tallest building in the Western Hemisphere in less than sixty seconds. Accompanying the rapid journey, an incredible high-definition time-lapse video plays on the glass walls of your Sky Pod elevator recreating the development of New York City’s skyline from the 1500s to today’s 21st-century skyscrapers.

As you arrive at the 100th floor One World Observatory, be prepared to explore three levels filled with innovation and inspiration. But first, immerse yourself in a 2-minute screening session at the See Forever Theater that presents the unique pulsating rhythm of the Big Apple in three dimensions, by combining bird’s eye imagery, time-lapse shots and patterns. As the video ends, the screen rises slowly to reveal the observation deck and the amazing panoramic views of New York City and beyond. 

Head to the main Observatory on the 100th floor, also known as the Discovery Level and experience the Big Apple like never before. Enjoy breathtaking 360-degree views of the city, taking in her iconic sights and neatly lined the blocks and avenues. See the Empire State Building, Rockefeller Center, Woolworth Building and the Statue of Liberty. From your lofty position, you can even look down on the helicopters that take tourists high over Manhattan and see just how many boats fill the surrounding water. 

The Main Observatory also features the expansive Sky Portal, where you can take a walk high above the streets of New York. Those brave enough step a circle of video screens that deliver an unforgettable high-definition view of the streets below.

If you want to complete the day with a drink, a bite to eat or dinner, One World Observatory offers three distinct options on the 101st floor, all of them with a setting that is truly and magnificently one-of-a-kind.


One World Observatory is located at One World Trade Center at the corner of West and Vesey Streets in Downtown Manhattan.
