Take in the best views in the Western Hemisphere whenever you like! This priority pass lets you skip the lines and fast-track through the security checks, getting you to the top of the world's 6th tallest building in a jiffy. Whether you want to start your day here or watch a romantic sunset, now you can take in those 50-mile views at the time of your choosing!
At a freedom-tastic 1776 feet tall, New York's One World Trade Center has the best views in town, with panoramic vistas of the city and beyond.
But views like these make the OWTC a popular destination for locals and visitors alike, and queues regularly snake around the city – bad news if you wanted to visit at a specific time.
Luckily, you can now reserve the One World experience at the time of your choosing, and skip all those pesky queues to boot!
Zip through the priority security check and jump aboard a deluxe SkyPod elevator, lined with LED screens which show you the evolution of New York as they blast you skyward.
Once you get up there, you'll want to spend some time soaking in the jaw-dropping views across the three-story observatory. At the vertiginous Sky Portal platform, you can even walk out over live video projections of the city below – feeling brave?
