We loved the views and the whole different environment at the top. Make sure you bring an extra sweater or jacket, it is much cooler up there.

Several friends were worried about being scary. It was not at all. Very secure feeling. The floor rotates, so everyone gets a view. It does get cancelled if there are winds, so we did not get to go the first day we attempted.

It will be windy on the top, so better to take jacket and a cap. It might be interesting to watch the "clouds show", but with strong wind it might not be that enjoyable.
