  • Skip the massive queues, enjoy a lightning-quick security check, then fly straight to the top of the 1,776-foot tower for panoramic views of New York City and beyond from the very top
  • See a time-lapse history of New York in the SkyPod elevator lined with LED screens, then stretch your legs over live-streamed footage of the city in the nerve-testing Sky Portal areas
  • Upgrade your sightseeing with the futuristic One World Explorer iPad, and Augmented Reality experience that lets you take a virtual helicopter tour of the city and see the horizon come to life with overlaid multimedia content (coming soon)

The One World Observatory puts you on top of the world, and now you don't have to wait to get there! Skip the lines, fast-track your way through the security check, then glide straight to the 1,776-foot summit for the most incredible panoramic views on this side of the planet. It's sightseeing, but not as you know it.

Ordinarily, the queues to get inside One World Observatory can snake around the block. And that's before you've got to the lengthy security checks inside.

Treat yourself to the deluxe experience with this priority pass that lets you skip the tedious queuing and get straight into your 'SkyPod' elevator. Its LED screens will show you the history of New York as you glide into the sky.

Up topside, you'll have plenty of time to soak in those views from a high-tech 3-story viewing platform on the very top of the building, and you can even take a vertiginous stroll through the clouds in the real-time Sky Portal.

One World Explorer iPad (coming soon)

Book an iPad and (sky)dive into the One World Explorer Augmented Reality app. This experience lets you take a virtual helicopter tour of the NYC skyline, or scan the horizon and see it brought to life with dynamic multimedia content. This is cutting-edge sightseeing!
