  • The 360-degree view was astounding. It really made us realize how the waterways shaped the progress of the city over the years. The elevator ride was very creative as we saw the expansion of the city....  more »
  • Well worth a visit a lovely experience when you get to the top. A nice little cafe and a bar at the top what a place to eat and drink and take in the views  more »

  • Stunning 360 views of the entire city. As a New Yorker, this was quite a magical experience. I recommend going 30/40 mins before sunset. That way you see the city during the day, a beautiful (hopefully!) sunset and the city light up. It’s absolutely breathtaking
  • Great experience all together. The view is great. The presentation is great. The best part is there is not limit as to how much time you can spend time. For example, in Chicago, for the observatory at Willis Tower, you get only 1 min to click photos and get out. But that is not the case here at the One World. You can stay for more time till you get a perfect picture. The only downside was that there were too many lights inside which caused reflections on the glass while trying to take pictures. The entire area should be a little dark with less lights pointed towards the glass windows.
