I'm cautiously optimistic mid-2014. We probably won't have a good idea till the end of this year.

On a clear night, you can see the Sky beam for the last 20-30 minutes of a commercial flight into Vegas.

ESB´s open terrace is aweful. You are literilly ina cage, that obstructs the views and makes pic taking a pain in the ass.

I usually don´t write abt 911 in this thread, but. The only aweful thing about the OB Decks location is, that it is almost in the exact flightpath the plane used to hit the north tower.

I don't care what the video says. All the while I have heard and read 2014 on these boards, and there should be a more definitive answer than that.

Ticket price for Observation Deck with museum and cinema stuff: +30$
What If I want to go ONLY to Observation Deck or Restaurant? Do I have to pay all that stuff? Isn't any elevator that goes from the lobby to the 100th floor DIRECTLY? Just as old WTC had... I think we're missing something.

Yeah, should've done that first. LOL. 2015 is pretty disappointing. Hopefully it's early 2015.

I'm afraid you are missing the point of all that "multimedia crap" : it is before the elevators. Which means you will be standing in line, just like you do when you want to go to the ESB observation deck. So the question is different: do you want to stand in an hour long line staring at a blank wall, or with "multimedia crap" making perceived time move faster because you are being entertained?

Maybe, only maybe, there are whole teams of engineers and psychologists and designers that work on queueing theory and on this "media crap".

How about spray on fire proofing. Insulation does not equal fire proofing>

shouldnt the glass be slanted on the sides of the building rather than straight up and down which this video shows?
