Tickets for visitors will be priced at £24.95 for adults and £18.95 for children. I guess if I was trveling to the UK. on a vacation I would pay the price but, seems high just to look out of windows.

Joe, I think the pricing is an insult to our visitors

Sort of, but when on a vacation you spend more than you normally would at home. You save up for it.

Hard to write this but it used to be so easy to go to the WTC restaurant
Windows on the World and just grab a drink. It was near the top, no cover
charge, no minimum and it was fantastic for locals and tourists alike.

@Scott, I live about 5 miles from the Pittsburgh Airport. Used to go there and watch the planes take off, stop at TGI Fridays. Those days are gone.

We also have the London Eye (we call it the wheel of fortune). Ticket £17.00 to £40.00 (but includes a glass of champers!
