Description

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.

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 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.

Very easy to do and worked well.

The crowds weren’t bad on the day we went but it would have been really nice to get in faster. The views are tremendous and well worth the opportunity to see the city from so high.

It didn't appear that it provided much benefit over the regular line.
