The new World Trade Center is nearly ready to open its doors (and very, very high windows) to the public. One World Trade Center’s observatory, perched 1,250 feet in the air on the tower’s 100th, 101st and 102nd floors, will launch on May 29.
Guests will ride up to the observatory in a super-fast elevator that scales One World Trade in less than 60 seconds and features a floor-to-ceiling LED screen showing the development of the New York skyline. On the 100th floor, guests will be able to take in views on the main observation platform, while the 101st floor will feature dining areas and the 102nd will be a private event space that holds up to 300 people.
Tickets, which are expected to be very popular this summer, can be ordered in advance online starting on April 8 at 10 a.m. EDT. Tickets are $32 for adults, $30 for seniors above age 65 and $26 for children between ages 6 and 12. Kids 5 and under get in free.
