  • We just happened to come here during the 2017 Spring Equinox. It's recommended to get reservations earlier in the day, but probably not necessary. There is no cost other than parking. If there's a game, plan on arriving at least 20 minutes earlier than the 15 minutes before sunset start time. That said, I thought the later phases of the evening light was visually much cooler with the contrast There's plenty of seating on both levels and people matriculate out. I enjoyed the top level better with the city skyline views and University views. Very cool, unique, and free thing to do in Houston, especially of you've been on your feet all day.
  • Come see this place at night when it is less crowded. Very quite place and nice. Go before when lights shut off
  • Soooo either I didn't do enough drugs to understand this... or it's a building with a square hole on top with lights that change colors every 5 mins.. that's it ..if this was for relaxation purposes then yes. Other than that no wow factor here !!
  • Definitely a neat place, but not worth a 40 minute "light show".
  • Love love love this experience. Poetic and community-oriented. Only problem I have is they haven't maintained the installation. Lots of rust and grime is piling up on the roof of the building which makes it look dingy. Other than that, I will always love to come here for some quiet in the bustling city. Pro-tip: You can park on campus with your flashers on. Or just take the rail in.
