Military and dependents get in free with Id's. Everyone else $4 cash only admission. Elevator only goes up so far. Be prepared to walk the last few flights of stairs. Worth it. Wonderful views.

The stairs between the 45th floor and the top of the building was kind of nerve-racking, but the view from the top was great. It was cool and the air was crisp and fresh. A good way to start out the day.

This is a well-kept secret in Cincinnati. You go up in this tiny old elevator that's a kick for kids because they've never seen one. Once up there, you can see the whole city and its environs. Great for long-time Cincinnatians as well as tourists,...More

It’s $4 per adult plus $6 for parking on the weekend. You’ll take the first elevator up 45 floors, the next (small and old elevator) up to the 48th floor and then walk up to the 49th floor. Make sure you have cash for tickets!...More

If you want a bird's eye view of downtown Cincinnati, the riverfront, and Northern Kentucky, this is a must! I could not find the parking garage entrance so I parked at the Fountain Square garage which is, essentially, right across the street. That being said,...More

While the "entrance" is somewhat hard to find (the building spans almost an entire block) the entrance is on Vine Street. A quick elevator ride to the 46th floor and then a three flight of stair or very small elevator up to the 49th floor...More
