This is great! It is not at all as scary as it looks from the outside. This is something I definitely recommend.

We had dinner reservations at the Chart House for 6 pm, which allowed us to get daytime and nighttime views of the city. The meal was scrumptious! The observation deck is included in your dining experience, so factor this in when looking at the dinner prices. After dinner we went up to the observation deck to experience the wind, views...

I love towers! Went here on a very hot Texas day! Its a long walk from the bus stop but we did manage to find shaded places to sit on the way. Very confusing entry but we managed to get in. The lift is glass on one side so you can see how fast you are going up...a bit scary!... More

The elevator ride was staffed by very nice young man, this being only good part of this experience. Tower views are mediocre, restaurant required 30 minute wait, 4 D movie of Texas skies was preceded by 2 cartoons, each 40 minutes, Only then was the real movie we came for "The skies of Texas." After sitting through over an hour... More

The grounds here are massive. They surround the tower, which you can decide to go up or not. When we were there, not a lot of people were going up. We decided to just wander around and look at all of the fountains and the views. While it was a hot day, the water coming off the fountains kept the... More
