One World Observatory announces special holiday packages.
Families can get festive at One World Observatory, which is offering new holiday ticket packages. Take in the magic of New York City during the holiday season on the top three floors of the tallest building in the Western Hemisphere.
Beginning Nov. 28, families can purchase the Family Holiday Pack, which includes two adult tickets, two youth tickets, four hot chocolates, and a collectable One World Observatory snow globe. Have a sitter and want to take in the view? Select the Holiday Cheer Package and enjoy a festive cocktail—such as the Holiday Martini—and take home a collectable One World Observatory shaker. Either way it'll be a memorable visit as you take in the 360-degree stunning views 1,250 feet above NYC.
People of all ages are sure to love the trip on the Sky Pod Elevator, where you can watch over 500 years of New York City evolution in an immersive virtual time-lapse in less than 60 seconds, thanks to floor-to-ceiling LED technology.
Once you reach the 100th floor, explore expansive, panoramic views of Manhattan, Brooklyn, and New Jersey. Thrill seekers in the group will want to check out Sky Portal, where you’ll stand over a clear, 14-foot glass disc to see what’s happening on the city streets 100 stories below.
There are also three dining areas on the 101st floor: One Café offers light fare such as soups, salads, and sandwiches; One Mix is a casual bar and bistro with handcrafted small plates and artisanal cocktails; and One Dine has seasonal fine dining (reservations are required).
