There are many ways groups could elevate their experience at One World. A thrilling 47-second ascent in the SkyPod elevators and an awe-inspiring 50-mile view from the See Forever Theater evoke feelings of awe and excitement for the past, present, and future of the Big Apple.

The SkyPortal displays a real-time look to the city streets below, illustrating the true height of the tallest building in the Western Hemisphere. CityPulse, a live interactive showcase, draws groups into the city's history and traditions, while presenting Ambassadors discuss more than 75 topics and present twice each hour. One World Explorer, the observatory's digital skyline guide, offers a self-guided tour of New York's most iconic sights and beyond.

Have a burning question? Circulating Observatory Ambassadors are a wealth of knowledge and are available to provide information during your group's visit.
