It’s nice to see the city from above, but this is a dated exhibit. They tried with the 4D movie, but their camera/screen needs some updating. They have information to read on the observation level, but it doesn’t grab your attention. The water features below...More

It goes without saying, but the views were incredible. I couldn't believe the wind when we stepped outside, but it was worth it. You don't realize how quickly the tower is turning until you look down from the bar area.

This was included in the hop on hop off tour. Long walk from stop but we enjoyed the view and the 3 short 4D movies they offered. Great for families.

I wasn’t really sure what to expect at Tower of the Americas, but with half the observation deck closed down for a private event, I’m glad I bought my tickets on base. It was neat to see the view, but most definitely not at the...More

The view is OK once you get up, but the whole place was really dated and in need of a face-lift. Staff were unenthusiastic and it wasn't clear how to buy a ticket. Think it might have been good in its day, but a bit...More

I went last week and it was $8, BUT if you can find parking on the street and don’t mind a little walk it’s 30cents per hour.
