One World Observatory Reviews

The entire experience is amazing. You get really pretty views of the city from all the directions. I have been to the Top of the Rock and that was also beautiful but this gives you clear views of the Liberty Island and Jersey City along with Manhattan. Some tips - 1. Buy your tickets online. They are cheaper. 2. Try to do this early in the morning on a sunny day. 3. The elevator up shows a good history of the city's architecture. Try to stand in the middle so you can look at all sides. 4. The hourly shows are pretty good with good insight about the city. Try and attend at least one of them. 5. They show you a movie just before you enter the observatory. Keep your cameras ready because the screens will come up after the movie to give you an absolutely beautiful first glance of the city.
Its all awesome in the ONE WORLD OBSERVATORY from the building,lift and the view. You can get guide tablets for enhancing your experience. The view is great. It makes you feel like the world is endless. You can also see the live ground view from screens at the top. You can also get your photos with the one world observatory view at the back. They'll also give you a code , you can fill the code on the mentioned website and download your photos and you'll also get 3 copies of your photos. The lift time is also amazing. They show you the story of the ONE WORLD OBSERVATORY from its building time till today. Everything looks so amazing from the top. You can see far enough. Its a lifetime experience trip to the top. I don't have enough words to describe the experience and all the fun you have their. Your trip to the observatory may only last a few hours but the experience would last forever.
