    Traveler Tips

    Skip the line, and reservations for dinner is the best was to enjoy it.
    Reserved a table for the one dine observatory restaurant, a bit pricey but worth it for a special evening.
    Food and drink very expensive at the restaurant and bar at the top.

    Unfortunately not. I paid for an experience I could not have due to time constraint. Do I consider $110. a giveaway. Maybe with time, it will be worth it

    Vicki_D, Jun 2023
    We thoroughly enjoyed the views, even with limited visibility. Would highly recommend. Good pricing too.
    David_B, Jun 2023
    Was great that there were no queues on a Friday afternoon and the air-con was bliss with 90 degrees outside, but the observation deck was underwhelming, and the way they tried to get their hands on more money was very annoying. Can't touch the Edge or the Empire State Building
    High expectations. Disappointing experience.
    Donald_G, May 2023
    Disappointed the observation deck was inside / enclosed in glass. Missed the outdoor experience of the previous WTC. Photos through thick glass were uninspiring. Given the >$50 admission price, I did not get value for money spent. The $15 iPad experience was clunky - not a good value.l
    Best of new your experience for friends and family
    1_S, May 2023
    Great all the way around! Make sure to make eating reservation to get the best experience! 10 stars if we could
    Nice view poor customer service
    Gary_S, May 2023
    The very rude cashier in the ticket office was a distraction to the experience. Very short tempered and should not be the fist point of contact with the public. From a person that NEVER complains, this was a big issue for us.

    Worth the Cost
    Wayne_s, May 2023
    Went early and had no lines. Well organized experience. It is more than the view, there is a lot of information given, both oral and digital filmed.
    Worth the time and money
    mtm7s2cb28, May 2023
    Worth the time and money, very new. We were 2 adults and teens. Why Should a review needs to be a 100 characters minimum?
    Just do it!
    Laura_F, May 2023
    Amazing experience. I recommend it. It is very interesting and the view of the City is wonderful. A great experience also for the children.
    Unique view of NYC
    Edward_D, May 2023

    Not worth the price charged
    DrTeresaA_H, Apr 2023
    Extremely overpriced. Crowded. Paying $53 for a view which is difficult to see due to the crowds. Xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
    Great views for way too crowded
    Thomas_H, Apr 2023
    Great views. Way too many people. You had to fight your way up to glass. Try to pick a less crowded time.
    Wow 🤩
    Lorie_B, Apr 2023
    Speechless! Was more than I expected and a memory I’ll never forget. Took super fun pictures and learned so much about New York!

    Don't buy one world observatory w viator!
    David_S, Apr 2023
    Don't book with viator! They sold me a ticket for a 10:20am access to the one world observatory. When I turned up at 10:20 and they scanned the barcode on the ticket it turns out to be a voucher so have to queue up at guest services. I get to guest services and they tell me viator shouldn't be selling tickets with a time attached, this is a known issue with them they have escalated and while they can honour the voucher the next ticket available is at 11:50am! I've raised this with viator yesterday and await their proposed compensation, nothing yet...
    Grace_N, Apr 2023
    Seeing the city from above & then visiting the 911 reflecting pools. Using the iPad to locate places of interest.
    Worth it
    Marisa_W, Apr 2023
    The observatory was awesome to see the whole city! It was a great experience and I would do it again. Truly very beautiful.
    Don’t Miss this Opportunity!
    Danielle_W, Mar 2023
    Visit the restaurant and bar if you can. The food and drinks were amazing and the view is truly one of a kind!
    March 25 Visit to NYC One World Observatory
    Donald_S, Mar 2023
    Although it was a cloudy/rainy day, the views from NYC One World Observatory were phenomenal. The crowds were not too bad and well-managed by the scheduling and large size of the observatory floor.
    Trip to observation tower
    LEON_V, Mar 2023
    The only concern is that description does not stated clear what’s included and what is excluded in surrounding attraction

    We had an amazing experience at the observatory! Be sure to spend the extra $15 to get the tablet that shows you each building and its history.
    On top of the world
    Barbara_H, Mar 2023
    To Wittness and experience that America can rebuild and have have an opportunity to see the beauty and experience the tour had to offer. Beautiful sights.
