We love going in the tower and seeing all of Hot Springs. This is a fun thing to do and not many cities have this feature. Go see it.

If it had been $2, we may have had expectations in line with the views. We were there on a day with perfect weather and enjoyed hiking most of the trails in the area - including the West Mountain. Guess there wasn't much more to gain by going up... Now we know.

Amazing view and worth it, even if just to get a bearing on where things are in the city.

Wish it was cheaper but the view is great and there are fun historical facts on the first observation deck.

The tower offers a nice, 360 degree view of the area. There are two viewing decks. The upper is open air. The lower is enclosed. I am not sure that I would consider it a bargain, but you can get coupons at the Hot Springs visitor center or in one of the Arkansas travel guides. In additon to the view, there are small exhibits depicting the history of the area.
One important note: The upper level is infested with wasps! If you have allergies or a strong aversion, stay in the enclosed area.

If you aren't going to drive to any of the scenic overlooks, this is good. There is an overlook, right where you turn to go to the tower, that offers a great view. On the road out from the tower, there is another overlook. If you want to pay to see the view from the tower, they have $ off coupons at the Hot Springs National Park visitors center.We went on a cloudy day, but could still see a great distance
