We went as a family and most of us are very afraid of heights. The ride up and the platform were just fine for us. The views were fantastic, and since we can walk all the way around the needle there were many great views. Also, the telescopes were free to use, no charges to use them! Unusual in the day and age. Of course there was a fee to go up the needle on the elevator, but it was worth it.
