Dubai, Chicago, New York, Orlando, Shanghai… A solid top 5 must-visit list, and home to some the highest and sought after attractions. Being on top will always be en vogue! How do you rival an Orlando Disney World experience? What’s it like to stand atop a glass floor from 100 storeys high? How much adrenalin does the world’s tallest roller coaster generate? Here are insights into visiting some of the world’s highest attractions – in style.
Unless you’re friends with the Sheik, you won’t have access to his personal residence upon the top floors of the world’s tallest building. Yet with Fast Track tickets, you can proceed directly to the 124th floor for unparalleled views of Dubai. The ticket also entitles to privileged queuing at designated areas. Dubai looks to double the hotel room stock by 2020, and a must-visit destination for the luxury minded.
At 1,353 feet in the air, The Ledge glass box extends 4.3 feet from the building for chilling views straight down below your Jimmy Choos. And for the ultimate luxurious event – rent the Tower’s 99th floor for a stunning Chicago cocktail reception, and gain VIP access to The Ledge!

On top of the tallest building in the western hemisphere will host floors 100 to 102, New York City’s highest observation decks. Enjoy views of the Atlantic Ocean and Catskill mountains while dining on the 101st floor. Yet don’t expect fine dining. Put your posh aside for the day while feasting on Yankee Stadium food offerings. Hey, this is New York!
If world-class, high-end shopping is your game, the most exclusive brands in the world will be found within the world’s second-tallest building.
