Instead of paying $20/person to view the city we opted to have drinks on the floor above the viewing floor. Great choice. Service was awesome, view amazing and drinks were delicious. Glad we chose this option.

Well I went when it was raining and it was fine. We in fact enjoyed the indoor attraction as there were audio guides and we could still see all the sites.
