Nothing compares to the feeling of awe when taking in the New York City skyline and luckily for you, One World observatory provide just this experience and more!
Situated on top of the One World Trade Center (or Freedom Tower as it’s also known) in the financial district of New York City, the views will take your breath away. Although it’s not just the views….
Before getting to indulge in the beauty of the New York City from up high, you will be brought up in the skypod. Travel up 102 floors on a brilliant elevator ride, complete with a short film.
When you arrive at the top you’ll be treated to views stretching out for miles. With sights like the iconic statue of liberty, 9/11 memorial and more, you’ll be lost for words. Make sure to bring a camera to capture the amazing views of the city.
Once you’re up on the observation deck, you’ll have the chance to listen to one of our guided tours. You will also have the opportunity to rent an ipad for $15, this will enable you to see the names and information about the buildings you are looking with and interface layered over the camera display of the view.
Now obviously you’re desperate to visit by now. In that case you will also be glad to hear that for those itching to see the sights there is a VIP entry option. This means you will get faster entrance through the security lane, so you can be gasping at the sights as soon as possible.
The VIP entry is priced at $56 pp, with the standard admission costing $34.
After taking in the views you’ll be delighted to find the One Dine restaurant where you can eat with the skyline views around you. This luxury bar/restaurant is open daily from 11am-9pm and requires at least 30 days in advance for reservations. Reservations can be made for 1-6 people with last reservation being at 7.30 pm. You’ll be able to enjoy the quality service complemented by seasonally inspired plates.
