This gives you a different prospective of the area from a high loft. Made for the 1968 worlds fair and well maintained with a gift shop, restaurant and 4 D move theater. Plan on a minimum of 1 hour.

Even though it is very similar to most other similar towers, we were not disappointed. Any time you can get a view like this it is worth doing. The surrounding area is attractive thanks to fountains & mini falls, as well as flora & trees....More

Among such places this is a good one. It's free if you go to the bar or restaurant, otherwise it cost to see the movie, etc. Free Happy hour is best, cause you see the sunset, and prices and selection are affordable.

Yes for reservations. All views are good. The inner seating is elevated and all seats face outward (no one sits with back to view). Give yourself plenty of time for the elevator. We waited quite a bit for it.

No. There is a snack bar, but very limited and very expensive. Go to Riverwalk for many dining options
