Full description

Visit SUMMIT, situated at the top of the iconic modern landmark One Vanderbilt. Discover a place which changes our relationship with cities, environment, and ourselves through immersive, multi-sensory experiences.

Head off the main concourse of Grand Central Terminal, to learn the story behind its creation. Learn all about an attraction designed with the intention of transcending everyday existence, and engage with space in a fascinating new way. Begin with a sensory stimulating elevator ride to the 91st floor. Be transported into SUMMIT AIR, a new way to see and interact with space designed by Kenzo Digital. Layered with two floors of floor to ceiling mirrors, AIR offers a new perspective as the Manhattan skyline reflects all around you. Next, test your limits at SUMMIT LEVITATION and enjoy the rush of stepping out over the city on two glass ledges suspended 1,063 feet above Madison Avenue. Watch your image float in the clouds across a multi-media screen and get in touch with your playful side in the silver balloon AFFINITY room. Once you reach the 93rd floor, take in the sights and sounds of NYC from another vantage point on the outdoor observation deck.

For a more intimate, adult-friendly evening experience, choose to visit SUMMIT during Air at Night. Guests can enjoy access to all areas of the attraction, an LED light show with accompanying vivacious music, and cocktails for purchase at the 93rd floor bar.

We had lots of fun! A bit annoying have been the “covers” for the shoes because they looked really bad on pictures (but understandable because of the glass floor). As well as all other observation platforms is this one also really over priced. It was my first observation platform and I really liked it. It wasn’t too crowded!

The experience was exceptional. The only reason I gave it a four out of five is because they don't stress enough that once you leave a level, you cannot go back. They said many times you can stay as long as you like, but it is only on a recording when you are getting shoe covers, glasses, and getting through the line that they mention it is a one-way tour. It was disappointing at the end when we realized this. But, it is definitely an amazing experience. Just take your time and don't move on until you're ready.

A very strange but cool experience, personally we were not bothered by the more arty stuff, but the lift up and the reflective room and the glass box allowing levitation were the best parts as well as the drinks at the top and the extra views to be enjoyed, before coming down. Also we were disappointed with the photo option as they didn't seem to have the one we wanted just some super imposed same image over various backgrounds 👎🏻. Overall great, but not perfect for us.
