The observation deck gives you a incredible 360 degree view of this fab city, with some great photo opportunities! Also the Skyride is well worth doing, great for older kids and it does throw you around quite a bit!
We walked up the last 6 levels stairs as there was a massive elevator queue and they were also doing maintenance, it doesn't sound a lot, but it's 3 sets per level..Make sure you wrap up if you visit during winter season, might not seem cold on the ground, but high up its freeeezzing!!! Overall, well worth it!
