WATCH: Video Offers Virtual Tour Of 1 World Trade Center's Observatory

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) -- You don't have to wait until next spring to experience what a trip up to the One World Trade Center observation deck will be like.

The One World Observatory has released a video featuring a start-to-finish virtual tour of the observatory, slated to open to the public next spring.

The video takes viewers through the skyscraper's front doors, into the Welcome Lobby, through a pre-show program that tells the story behind the rise of One World Trade Center, up an elevator called a "sky pod" and into the observatory for panoramic views of the city from the 100th floor.

Admission for adults ages 13 to 64 will be $32. The price for children ages 6 to 12 will be $26. Seniors will pay $30, and kids 5 and younger will be admitted free.

The logo features the towering silhouette of One World Trade Center, the Western Hemisphere's tallest building.

"If any one image can symbolize New York's eternal spirit and resiliency, it's the sharp profile of One World Trade Center standing tall amid the city skyline, a beacon of enduring strength and optimism," said David Checketts, chairman and chief executive officer of Legends, the observatory's operator.
