New York’s One World Observatory to open in May

Date Posted: 10/04/2015

A new viewing area at the top of the One World Trade Center building, promising panoramic views of New York City, will open to the public at the end of spring.

On 29th May, One World Observatory, will launch on top of the tallest building in the Western hemisphere.

The attraction, which is positioned on top of the tallest building in the Western hemisphere, will also host interactive exhibits and dining options.

Upon entry to the experience guests will be greeted in the Global Welcome Center. Groups will then proceed to a pre-show program, entitled Voices, which tells the personal stories of the men and women who built the One World Trade Center; and Foundations – fact  about the bedrock on which the building stands.

Visitors will then board one of five elevators, called Sky Pods, to ascend to the 102nd floor in under 60 seconds.

Immersive, floor-to-ceiling LED technology in each cab invites groups to experience a virtual time-lapse that recreates the development of New York City's skyline from the 1600s to present day.

Dining options should also be available at the new attraction during the summer.  

Special rates for group trips with 20 or more visitors will be available. For more information visit
