“Great view, but borders on highway robbery”

Hot Springs Mountain Tower
Ranked #16 of 84 things to do in Hot Springs
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed November 15, 2011

OUCH the price for an elevator ride and a 360 view! We enjoyed the history exhibit on the enclosed floor -- fascinating and interesting snippets and we very much enjoyed the drive up the mountain and view of fall colors.

End of the day-- very pricey fee for 20 minutes of learning!

We went in the late afternoon with very few people on the enclosed viewing deck. The view of the fall colors and the area of the National Park was great. We took quite a few photos but the best were taken one level up on the open deck.
The enclosed deck has many panels explaining much of the history of Hot Springs. We could see that young and old alike enjoyed this attraction

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.
