About this activity

Open your mind to unlimited possibilities with the Summit One Vanderbilt by experiencing three levels of immersive space. Challenge, inspire, and thrill your senses with new perceptions.

Situated in one of the tallest glass buildings in Manhattan take to the skies with Ascent for a breathtaking view of the city from the world's tallest external glass-bottomed elevator. Ascent is the perfect conclusion to any SUMMIT journey.

Through SUMMIT, artist Kenzo Digital has created one of the largest, most mind-boggling cultural experiences in New York City—Air. You emerge into a world without structure, where physics and time are related in their own way.

Look down on Transcendence 1 and see 30,375 square feet of mirrors, to experience the feeling of boundless space. You connect physically to the space, and the experience becomes interactive and playful.

Step out over the city with Levitation and experience the thrill of looking down on Madison Avenue from 1,100 feet above.

Become part of the experience when your face takes form in the clouds, bridging physical and digital realities. A great 60 - 90 minute experience that the whole family will enjoy. A true spectacle for all ages.
