  • The view was just a view, but the display was better. Pay to go up the elevator to the top where there is a walk-around view of the hills and buildings in town below. Not breathtaking. Go down one...

  • Fun to look out, and pretty good info on the displays (if your kids let you read it, ha!). But it could use an update for sure. Just looks old and dated, and the newest trivia on the displays was around 1990s if I remember correctly. So it would be great if the state or park could add some more updated info about the area. But as far as looking at the scenery, and even the hike up and down from bathhouse row, it was fun. And the gift shop was pretty good for kids, too.
  • I would definitely refer to check it out once if you're there for the first time. You can pretty much see everything that Hot Spring has to offer and its beauty. You get to see a awesome scenery through second and third floor. The tower is kind of old and the lift is little sketchy as it shakes. Beside that i would definitely recommend everyone to at least visit once.
