Nothing to do but look at it. Not worth the ride; of course, unless you want to meet drug dealers outside. Horrible

I didn't do my research. We thought the tower was a Asian restaurant of some sort. When we got there, the first thing that caught our eye was the view! Amazing and breath taking! When we got inside we realize it was just an attraction, haha. Awesome view though and would love to return back.

A great ride up the hill to view the Pagoda and the wonderful views of Reading and the surrounding hills. Check to see when the Pagoda is open.

The Pagoda was not open but the sights were still amazing! Wonderful fall drive and a fun little excursion. Definitely worth the time. It would be fun to return within the hours of operation and view the inside. Spoke with a maintenance worker who gave us some background. we were disappointment there were no view-able historical summaries available to us. One would think a simple print out of the history and original purpose of the Pagoda would be available for those of us (we were not the only ones there) visiting outside of the posted hours, which are fairly limiting. GORGEOUS views though!
