The sky-high view may be breathtaking, but so are the ticket prices.

The spectacular One World Observatory will open May 29 and the tickets, which went on sale Wednesday, will set you back far more than a pretty penny.

Adults: $32. Seniors: $30. Kids: $26.

That means a family of four would pay $116.

“On May 29, One World Observatory will officially open its doors to the public – offering visitors an inspiring and unparalleled opportunity to experience New York City,” David Checketts, the CEO of Legends, the company contracted to run the Observatory, said in a statement.

“From sweeping panoramic views, to innovative interactive exhibits, to world-class dining options, we expect One World Observatory to be the premier destination and attraction in New York City for both tourists and local residents."

One World Trade Center, at 104 floors and 1792 feet, is the tallest building in the Western Hemisphere and was constructed on the site where the Twin Towers, destroyed in the 9/11 attacks, once stood.

The observatory is on three levels, on floors 100, 101, and 102.
