We visited this tower and took the elevator ride to the top. Very nice views on a somewhat overcast day. The attraction here is the mountain coaster and zipline which attracts visitors. We have ridden mountain coasters, and dont prefer to zipline, so the tower offered something for us. I thought it was a little pricey at $10+ tax, but we were in a tourist town, so we expected to pay tourist prices, so there you go. I enjoyed the information about the history of the area in the tower, and Shepherd of the Hills tradition, so was curious to read the book or see the movie. There is also an area outside with some historical places, but also requires a ticket.
