This was the totally coolest place to be in Hot Springs. The view is almost spiritual and so very breathtaking. I love the sights and scenery of Hot Springs the best and this is the spot to check it all out.
THE EMPLOYEES WERE NOT VERY FRIENDLY. THE GIFT SHOP HAD A NICE VARIETY OF SOUVENIR. THE VIEW FROM THE TOP OF THE TOWER WAS AMAZING. I WOULD RECOMMEND THIS ATTRACTION TO OTHERS. IF YOU GO AS A GROUP OF 10 OR MORE YOU GET A DISCOUNT.
Once you enter into hot springs national park, you follow signs on this narrow windy road leading to the mountain tower. Once you walk in, you find it's basically just a gift shop for souveniers. I got a mug for $6, my brother in-law got a cap for $10. The shirts were kind of expensive though.
the tower was so much fun my wife and i have been there there a lot of times to hot springs that is and this was the first time we have been able to go to the tower and loved it. a lot of info there also to read.
The ride up the mountain was beautiful. The elevator ride up was awesome and the view from the top was incredible. A storm was rolling in just as we arrived so we got to see a fantastic lightning show as well. My 7 year old loved it. Even though it wasn't a perfectly clear day, it was still great. Totally worth it!
i liked just a bout everything about the mountain tower me and my wife recently went to hot springs for our honeymoon for week and she really enjoyed it she never seen mountains before but she liked the tower but if you want to see a good view just drive up to the rest area by the tower and its free and a great view we drove there everyday but you can see alot more in the tower i would recomend any one to visit hot springs its beautiful but make sure to bring plenty of money if you want to do anything any be vey careful on the rode up there its very dangerous if your not careful
I thought the view was breathtaking. I lived in the Hot Springs area for about 15 years and never went up there. I recently visited while on Vacation and it snowed, making everything that much more beautiful.
If you are looking for something that is going to amuse the daft, this isn't for you, but if you truly love nature, you will find that it is one of the greatest sites you will ever see.
(p.s.) You don't *have* to get something from the gift shop.
