It a neat little ride to the top that is enclosed so you can't see outside until you get to the top. Full panoramic view of the city and at each point (North, South, East, West) it had a sign telling you what you were facing and such.

I finally took a trip up in the Citrus Tower and especially liked the photos they display showing what the original landscape looked like. The only weird thing was the amount of wasps circling around outside and some had found a way to get in. I get that it's a really high tower and maintenance is an ordeal, but the... More

We took out-of-town guests here to see the local sites. I was very surprised about the price to go up into the tower. My husband refused to go because he thought it was so expensive. The woman in the building was rude and was not interested in telling us anything about the tower. Our friends and I took the elevator... More

Not really my cup of tea but it was ok if you're into things like this. I'm not a fan of elevators or high floors.

Fun nostalgic place to visit. Only $6 a person to ride to the top. (do so on a clear day when you can see everything... or in the evening at Christmas so you can enjoy the light show). Gift Shop is expensive, so i'd pass on that.

I love taking people here, so they can see the beautiful landscape of Lake County. You can see hills, lakes and trees. This is a must see stop in FL, for all visitors.

A little harder to find now that things have grown up around it. Once it was a tower in a field of orange trees, hence the name. Still worth seeing because it offers great views of the highway. If the moving Orlando Eye is not your speed maybe this is. Low admission price. I waited approximately 40 years to see... More

This was a great tourist attraction in the 50s. It is a little worn by time but an interesting stop.
