Overview
See New York City at your feet with admission to the One World Observatory, a 3-story destination on top of the western hemisphere’s tallest building. Ride to the 102nd floor in the Sky Pod, and watch the virtual city skyline transform across centuries of history. Learn about the construction of the 1,776-foot-tall (540-meter) skyscraper, which has sweeping views that stretch up to 50 miles (80 kilometers) across the city. Browse the cafés and restaurants in the One World Observatory, and enjoy New York from a whole new perspective. Choose to upgrade to the priority combo ticket to skip all the lines with Priority Access security line and Express elevator to the top, Priority exit from the Observatory and access to the One World Explorer - the virtual guide iPad. Need more flexibility? Upgrade to the All-Inclusive Flex Admission to arrive anytime on your selected travel date, receive all the upgrades of a Priority Combo ticket plus enjoy a beverage at the top!
What to Expect
When you arrive at One World Trade Center in Lower Manhattan, hop in a Sky Pod (aka elevator) and arrive on the 102nd floor in less than 60 seconds. The Sky Pod provides a virtual time-lapse experience so you can see how New York City has changed over the centuries.
If you thought the elevator ride was cool, you'll be blown away by the One World Observatory's vantage point, which on a clear day, provides a sight line of about 50 miles (80 kilometers). Watch a video about the making of the 1,776-foot-tall (540-meter) skyscraper, and then look out the panoramic windows for one-of-a-kind New York City views. Upgrade your experience to a priority combo ticket to skip all the lines with Priority Access security line and Express elevator to the top, Priority exit from the Observatory and access to the One World Explorer - the virtual guide iPad. Need more flexibility? Upgrade to the All-Inclusive Flex Admission to arrive anytime on your selected travel date, receive all the upgrades of a Priority Combo ticket plus enjoy a beverage at the top!
At the See Forever Theater, see time-lapse photos and aerial imagery during a unique 2-minute video presentation, and then check out the the Main Observatory on the 100th floor, where you can step onto a 14-foot-wide (4-meter) disc in the floor and look down for an incredible perspective of real-time, high-definition footage of Manhattan's streets. And don't leave without stopping by City Pulse, an interactive experience that connects visitors with New York's landmarks and neighborhoods.
When you're hungry, you can head to the 101st floor for a bite to eat (own expense). Options include pastries and fresh sandwiches at One Café, small plates and artisanal cocktails at the bar, One Mix, and high-end food and wine that matches the stunning view at One Dine (reservations required at One Dine).

You can arrive anytime in your window of time. I think if you were early or late they would still take you.
