The tower sits atop the hill in the center of the park.

  • Family groups of 4 may enter together.
  • Single patrons may enter two at a time.
  • Groups will be allowed five minutes on the viewing platform.
  • The handrails will be wiped down after each group exits.
  • Face coverings are required at all times while on the tour.
