The Observation tower at the Olympic park was well worth what we paid. We paid 1/2 price using our AAA discount. This was a much better deal than the combo ticket deals offered with the purchase of a Biodome ticket. The views were excellent from above. There was even a guide in the observation deck who answered questions. Be sure... More

You can ascend by cable car (a bit pricy at $32 a person but worth it). There is a very animated guide who shows you how the tower was developed, how this related to the evolving history of the Stadium, and above all, how Montreal took nearly 40 years to pay off the debt. The tower is open until 9pm,... More

Not much to do at the top but the view is amazing. My five year old easily bored but I could have spent a lot of time at the top of the stadium looking at the view. Worth checking out.

It was a wonderful view from the top. Ride up and down was great too. Not sure it was good value but very nice view from the top.

The views from the tower are the greatest ones you will find of Montreal. The ride on the tram was great. I am not comfortable with heights and trams but this one was not too bad.

Not sure it's worth paying entrance fees to any of the venues but definitely walm around and take pictures of the tower, the stadium, and the olympic rings. Find the rings ans the cauldron and that will be the best spot for "olympic" pictures

The tower was a nice ride up and it had very nice views of the surrounding areas. It was a neat experience overall to go up and view the entire Olympic Park. We didn't do the minor attractions though, just visited the Biodome beforehand.

Not only the stadium, but the whole complex is a must to know. With 4 major attractions (tower, biodome, planetarium, botanical garden), this place has a lot of history and information to discover.

The Olympic tower rises above Montreal and as we both remembered this Olympics from childhood we decided to visit. The park has a lot of construction going on (August 2014) and is a way out of the centre of the city ..... We caught the metro which was a good experience anyway. The only thing really to see was the... More
