  • A piece of history! The ride up is fun with the windows to enjoy the view. The history of the area is interesting to learn. And most of all the glorious view! I would build a house just like it if I could. I will gladly return 8$ a person
  • Great view and great gift shop. The view from the top is fun to see and the drive up is entertaining itself. Right in downtown Hot Springs so it's easy to get to and easily worth the 5 minutes to drive up for the free road views or the tower itself.
  • It would be the best places to visit during the fall in Arkansas. With just a small fee of $8 you go to the highest post of hot springs. The view is spectacular. It is a must visit at Hot Springs. You can drive or hike to the mountain top.
  • A lot of history in this place. Kind of fun to go old school at this destination. Views are nice. Just hop on the elevator and head up. Small entrance fee.
  • Provides an amazing view of the area. Reasonable admission prices and the staff is friendly. Has an extensive gift shop. The top floor is an open air level with 360 degree views. The 2nd level is air-conditioned and has a ton of historical information about Hot Springs. This place is a definite must when you visit.
