Reunion Tower provided my family with 4 day/night tickets to facilitate this post. All opinions are my own.
Geo-Deck at Reunion Tower
We’ve all seen it… the landmark Reunion Tower in the heart of downtown Dallas!! But have you ever visited? Family eGuide gives you an inside look at our recent trip to the Geo-Deck.
It’s ironic… I’ve lived in Dallas for over 20 years, but have never visited Reunion Tower. I’d heard stories from friends about the gourmet restaurant located within the ball of the tower, but I didn’t realize that you could visit the tower with the kids separately.
Parking is available for $6 at the south parking lot at Reunion Boulevard and Sports Street. Signs will direct you to the Reunion Tower GeO-Deck.
When we originally planned our visit with a day/night pass (allowing two separate visits on the same day, perfect for viewing the skyline during daylight and dark), we thought we’d visit the tower, then leave to explore the area and have dinner, then return at sunset.
However, once we arrived, we enjoyed it so much, we decided to stay and have something to eat at Cloud 9 Cafe, an affordable option located within the ball of the tower (Five Sixty (fine dining) by Wolfgang Puck is located on a different floor of the ball). We arrived about an hour before sunset and stayed until dark. Staying at the tower allowed us to really enjoy the beauty of downtown as the light changed our stay. Seeing all of the lights of the city come to life after the sun was well below the horizon was incredible from the elevated viewpoint.
There were two separate floors to explore on our visit, and both afforded spectacular 360 views of the Dallas skyline.
I always love outings like this, but it’s great when teens (who can be indifferent when it comes to sightseeing) also get excited about an attraction! My older daughter even talked about bringing her boyfriend back for a date:)
When you enter the Geo-Deck, staff will be on hand to snap a quick photo of your group in front of a green-screen. You can then go to a kiosk on site, choose your background, and email yourself a copy of the photo – free of charge!! However, just be sure NOT to wear green… It doesn’t work will in a green-screen scenario, as we can see from my daughter’s dress!! LOL!
After our visit, we stopped in the gift shop in the gift shop to press some pennies – a great little souvenir to remember our visit!
