The view from the top of the tower is beautiful. You can take an elevator up and then walk to a second elevator to go the rest of the way. There are signs that guide you along. Make sure you have cash, cards are not...More

It is worth taking the brief elevator ride to the top for a great view of the city and of Covington across the river

It's worth getting to the top and take a peek at the city from the roof. Only a few bucks and you'll get a 360 degrees view above the river, the stadiums, the city and its surroundings. Never experienced a line there, unlike similar experiences...More

The price of entry is more expensive then what it should be, but the views make up for it! You can see for miles and Cincinnati has one of the best skyline views ever! Glad we did this!

Worth the $4 price as no time limit on how long you stay on the deck. Be wary that no restrooms are available in the building. We were told the closest was Fountain Square. On a clear day, you won't regret it. Only thing that...More
