“This is a nostalgic must!”
Reviewed July 26, 2012

The citrus tower was built to look out over the acres and miles of citrus. Now most of that is gone but a few groves still exist. It still is a great attraction. You can see to Orlando and read the history. A fun thing to do with children. At Christmas it is a MUST when it is lit up and set to music.

“A look back to what Florida was - Citrus”
Reviewed July 24, 2012

Short $$ to go to the top of the tower to view all the way to Disney and what was orange groves. Small little gift shop.

“$6/adult, $4/child = TOTAL RIP OFF!!! What a joke and total waste of time and $. Maybe worth $2/person. Maybe.”
Reviewed July 16, 2012 via mobile

Overpriced junk in the gift shop. If these people had enough sense to lower prices, it may actually draw a crowd or move some inventory. Don't waste your time or money.

“Holiday light show is best but trip to the top is good too”
Reviewed July 16, 2012

Driving around, you can see the tower from pretty much anywhere in Clermont so we stopped in to take a look. For about $6/person, you rode the elevator up. Once there, it's a small observation deck but on a clear day, the view is amazing. Some have seen as far as the coast! We were there on a slightly cloudy day but we could still see all of Disney World which was fun.
Photos on the wall show what the view was when originally opened and that was interesting to compare. Also if you bring a few coins, there is a "wishing well" where you can listen to the coin drop all the way down.
The artwork on the elevator doors was a nice touch and once back in the lobby, be sure to check out the display cases featuring some of the memorabilia from the attraction's heyday.
If you're around during the holidays, be sure to catch one of the light shows. We meant to stop for one song but stayed for an hour. The radio option didn't work as well for us so we cracked the windows and enjoyed the cooler air.

Reviewed July 15, 2012

Not really. But seeing the panoramic views of the lakes, sink holes! valleys, hills and imagining the vast ORANGE groves of yesterday,
is a treat! This is FLORIDA!
