Looking for the best views in town? We can do one better – how about the best views in the Western Hemisphere? The One World Trade Center stands proud as one of the tallest buildings in the world, and now you can soar straight to the top and enjoy breathtaking views of New York City and beyond with these skip-the-line One World Observatory tickets.

Designed by master architect David Childs (of the Burj Khalifa in Dubai), the OWTC is a spectacular glass and steel monolith, reaching 1,776 feet into the sky.

If you thought the outside was impressive, wait until you’re in. You'll be greeted with an exhibit detailing the tower's development, before being whisked into a custom LED screen-lined elevator. As you glide upwards, you'll be treated to a time-lapse history of New York – it's like you're flying through time!

Of course, the real highlight of your One World Observatory tickets is waiting at the top. The three-story observatory offers unprecedented panoramic views of the world's greatest city. Your jaw might hit the ground, if it weren't so far away.

Once your pulse has settled, check out the Sky Walk, which broadcasts real-time video onto the walls and floor, allowing you to get a real bird's-eye view of the city below.

One World Explorer

Take your sky-high experience to a whole new level with the One World Explorer Augmented Reality app. Grab one of the supplied iPads and take a virtual helicopter tour of the NYC skyline, or scan the horizon and see it brought to life with dynamic multimedia content.

Insider tip

If the One World Trade Center's height sounds familiar, it is! The building was carefully designed to be exactly 1,776 feet tall, paying tribute to the year the Declaration of Independence was signed!
