This ultimate observation deck, to be called One World Observatory, will take visitors on an inspirational journey about the history of this iconic structure.

Visitors will board one of five dedicated state-of-the-art elevators that will be among the fastest lifts in the world to ascend to the top of the building in approximately 60 seconds.
