I visited because i never got to go up the twin towers and was keen to experience more of this amazing new building. The queues were minimal when I visited on a Wed evening around 7pm. $40 including taxes was expensive but you have to experience these things, right? Full security scans as you’d expect in this day and age and then into the elevator which is quite an experience - 45secs to do 100 floors but you can hardly feel it (just mild ear popping) and amazing full wall tv screens inside enhance the experience. You almost wish it was a bit slower so you can appreciate it more! Then into a long cinema type auditorium for an impressive little intro movie sequence before the big view is revealed. The 360 degree views are stunning and i spent a good 45 minutes up there so maybe $40 is not bad value after all. The merchadise seemed to be hideously expensive - no $3 fridge magnets here! They take your picture too at the start but i didn’t bother looking at the results/prices. No delay exiting and the elevator ride down is again, very cool with those tv displays. Don’t miss the very moving 9/11 memorial site next door. Definitely recommend visiting if its a nice clear day as the views are staggering.
