World Trade Center observation deck

Posted: Updated:
NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) -

The observation deck at One World Trade Center will not open until 2015 but the tower's developers are offering a glimpse of what they call the guest experience.

The observation deck will occupy the tower's 100th through 102nd floors.

Port Authority Chairman David Samson and other officials provided a preview to the media on Tuesday.

They say guests to the observation deck will see a "pre-show" about the creation of the building while they wait in line in the lobby.

There will be another video at the top before the actual panoramic view is revealed.

One World Observatory will provide visitors with spectacular views of New York City and the surrounding region from above 1,250 feet. The 120,000 square foot facility will feature cutting-edge digital technology, dining options, a gift shop, special events space and the "See Forever" theater where visitors will learn about the building of One World Trade Center.

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.

The cost of the tour has not been determined but the venue will offer discounted rates to local school and community groups.

    Realty TV star Kim Kardashian probably wished she did have one before she walked down the aisle with Kris Humphries. We might never have known about Tiger Woods' cheating ways if he had one. And figure skater Johnny Weir is insisting on one as part of his post-nuptial agreement. What is it? A digital privacy clause.
