The tower is a great way to see the city. 12 bucks admission isn't too bad for the view. There is also a movie theater that is free. It's nice and cool inside as well.

Maybe the food has gotten better but I have never had a good meal there. The dessert is great. The rotation made my children feel like they were car sick. The view is the best ever. Go to see the view !

You can get a great view of the area if you go up to the observation deck. There are audio spots that fill you in on the history of Texas, too.

Wow that thing is high. Very good view of all San Antonio. The grounds are beautiful with lots of waterfalls all around.

Yes for reservations. All views are good. The inner seating is elevated and all seats face outward (no one sits with back to view). Give yourself plenty of time for the elevator. We waited quite a bit for it.

No. There is a snack bar, but very limited and very expensive. Go to Riverwalk for many dining options
