If you are traveling to New York with children and you are planning to go up to One World Observatory, you will not need to buy tickets if the kids are under 5 years old, as they get in for free. However, if the children are over that age, they will need a ticket to access the skyscraper, although the good thing is that there are reduced rates for them.

If you book them in Hellotickets, you can find tickets for children from 30 € and with cancellation option, which is very interesting because when doing activities with children it can happen that there is an unexpected change of plans.

Discounts to visit One World Observatory are only available to members of the U.S. military, law enforcement, firefighters and emergency medical services. Please note that this is a high-demand activity, so discounts and free admission are not usually available on a regular basis.

For the rest of the visitors there are no discounts as such but don't worry because if you want to save a little on your visit, there are reduced rates for certain age groups such as those over 65 years old or children between 6 and 12 years old.

In Hellotickets you can also buy your tickets with reduced rates for these age groups from 30€ for kids and 34€ for older adults but with the advantage that you can cancel them, which is not possible on the One World Observatory website.

Buying the tourist pass New York Sightseeing Pass (from 122€) you can go up to the One World Observatory the day and time you choose to enjoy the spectacular views of New York and you can also benefit from interesting discounts in restaurants and entertainment in the city during your stay.

I recommend it if you want to get the most out of New York during your trip and not miss any of the fun. With the New York Sightseeing Pass you can choose between 1 and 10 days of validity to visit a number of tourist attractions and also has the advantage that you can cancel it.

Why choose the tourist pass?

To explore the Big Apple there are several tourist cards, each with its own peculiarities and prices, but the great advantage they all have is that paying only once a "flat rate" you can visit a lot of attractions, which will allow you not only to control your budget (New York is an expensive city!) but also save time by being able to enter the sites either by accessing without queues or by going through the fast queue.

In case you want to use one of these tourist passes during your trip to New York but you are not sure which one to choose, I advise you to take a look at the article The best tourist card in New York, it will surely help you decide!
