    A must in Riyadh
    Only SAR69 for a quick trip up the tower. Get there about 4pm, get the photos in daylight then wait till sun sets and watch the city change through dusty and darkness. Unfortunately there is no coffee shop to buy anything while you wait.

    Must see in Riyadh.
    Eat lunch on the third floor of the mall at the base with over 20 different, quality restaurants to choose from. Check out the skybridge right before sunset so you can see both night and day. Really beautiful, and when you come out at night, enjoy the light show on the tower.

    Awesome views of Riyadh at night
    We visited briefly just after dusk before eating at a near by hotel. Buy tickets on the first floor of the kingdom tower’s shopping centre, next to Mont Blanc. Tickets were easy to buy for immediate use. A short wait for a lift that takes you to the 77th floor and the mosque, then change of lifts to the 99th floor and the Sky Bridge. Fairly awe inspiring view. Not too busy either, other than walking from one end to the other there’s not much to do there. There’s no info up there on what you can see or compass points etc. The lighting changes colour every few minutes adding to the atmosphere. Tickets were SAR69 for adults. We spent about 15 mins up there, personally there was no need to stay any longer!

    Awesome views!
    I've seen many cities from high up, but somehow, seeing Riyadh from the skybridge was so much more amazing than I had imagined. It's 69 riyals, and I would definitely recommend coming here. I took the advice of some reviewers and went at 4pm and stayed until sunset, so I could see the daytime and evening views. Totally worth it!

    Nice experience
    Yeah, it was our plan. Riyad and his big towers. Kingdom tower has 99 floors and 2 lifts on the both sides. Ticket -34€/person. You will go cross shopping center. You can see all business center from 300 metres. And its nice experience.

    the tower offers an awesome nighttime view of the city
    an impressive tower. The elevator takes you up to the 99th floor and the skybridge that offers a spectacular 360 degree view of Riyadh. it's particularly cool at night because the city lights up kind of like Vegas. The bridge itself changes color every few minutes. Ticket cost is 69 SAR or about $18 for adults.

    Worthwhile visit
    Great views of Riyadh but it was quite smoggy when I was there. The shopping area in the building is amazing and lots of places to eat. I was able to have a glimpse into the small mosque located there. Visit is worthwhile.

    Stunning Views and Shopping at Kingdom Centre Tower
    Kingdom Centre Tower is a must-visit landmark in Riyadh. The Sky Bridge offers breathtaking panoramic views of the city, especially at sunset. The tower also features a high-end shopping mall with a variety of luxury brands and dining options. Its sleek, modern design and excellent facilities make it a top destination for both sightseeing and shopping in Riyadh. Highly recommended for an unforgettable experience!

    Nice Views
    If you have been to various "sky towers" around the world this will be nothing special but never the less the views are good and if you are in Riyadh looking for something to do this is probably the best out of a limited field to choose from. The mall underneath the skybridge is very nice for a walk around and their are some good food options for the sophisticated diner. Not a must see but worth a visit if you have time.

I visited here during my stay in Riyadh. I really wanted to walk on the Skybridge having read lots of people recommending it.

After having admired the building from outside - various views from acorss and around the city, I decide to visit at sunset.

Having finally managed to park in the shopping centre car park underneath I made my way into the shopping area of the Kingdom Centre and finally found the way into the entrance for the trip up the tower. It's not well signposted and you have to find the discrete entrance.

I'd tried to time it so that I would get up the tower to see the sun go down, however there was a large queue and it moved very slowly.

The desk was manned by one man, who was rude and unwelcoming. When I challenged the price as it was higher than the price on the wall, he just said VAT without any smile or friendliness.

The wait to go up in the lifts was well managed, but the staff were miserable and unfriendly.

Finally we got to the top only to find the sun had already gone down. And the walkway at the top of the tower was really crowded with lots of people all trying to take selfies and generally getting in the way. My picture makes it look quieter, but that pic took ages to take without loads of people in it.

The top of the tower is a glass sided walkway from one side of the tower to another. There is a barrier to try and stop you from touching the glass - which leans outwards, however people were dipping below it trying to take photos outdoors, however the lights inside reflect on the glass making this nearly impossible. There is nothing to tell you waht you are looking at and overall I found the experience massively disappointing. It's not the bets of views at night, definitely far better during daylight.

A few days before I had visited the Globe Experience at the Al Faisaliah Tower just a couple of kilometres away. This was deserted, you got to go outside and you were able to learn all about the tower and how it was built as well as get amazing pictures of the skyline as the sun went down and darkness set in. I'd recommend this for sunset and only come to the Kingdom Centre during daylight when it is much quieter and you can actually see the city below you. Yes the tower is far lower, but I think it is far more impressive to visit.

Again on the way down there was a long wait for the lifts where you were packed in. the shop at the bottom for souvenirs was closed.

Really disappointing.

We went up early evening to get the daytime and nighttime view including sunset - which I recommend to make the most of the visit. I like the curved bridge walkway/ viewing platform. When you buy your ticket there is a sign which states - no photos to be taken. Absolutely noone took any notice of this luckily as it would be bizarre on a view point attraction. The overall experience is a little lacklustre. The views are OK- one side being more finished than the other but a little bland and there are no signs or guidance to show you what you can see which is lacking.
It is a good way to spend an hour but no more than that. There is very little evidence of the user experience but if you bear that in mind it is a nice diversion.

Of course the Kingsom Tower has en excellent view over the city from the top of its curved bottle-opener shaped top. Also consider having lunch at the fine buffet-restaurant on the level below the “view-bridge”. There is a fee to go via elevator to the view at the top

At first glance of this building you have a dropped jaw.

Shaped like a shopping bag with a handle to lift, its a Design & Architectural splendour.

At night the colours change to green, yellow, red, etc.

there is an entry fee to go to the top but its worth it, as it gives you a 360degree view of the entire city.

The entrance to the Tower is through the Four Seasons hotel. There is a shopping mall from where you access the Tower. Cost of the experience is 60 SR + VAT (63SR total). It's a two lift trip, you go so far in one lift then transfer to another to access the 99th floor. The Sky Bridge connects the two upper parts of the Tower & from which you can see for miles & miles. Dependant on the time of day you choose to visit there could well be heat haze spoiling the distant view. I'm told the view at sunset is amazing. Set your camera to time lapse & leave it propped up by the glass. There is no time limit to your stay up the Tower so take your time & enjoy the view.

You can enjoy an Amazing view of Riyadh that gives you a great perspective of the size of the city. The access is from the mall and it was a nice experience. I recommend to go in the afternoon so you can see day and night views with sunset . Just beautiful .
The only downside no souvenir shop ! Which was disappointing as we wanted to buy some gifts

A must see…before, during and after sunset. Stunning views of the city from the the aptly named “sky bridge”. We were made very welcome on a mid-week afternoon/evening. Busy but not to busy around sunset. The discrete use of camera, and personal food and water seemed ok in spite of all the notices. Toilet are available on the floor between the upper and lower lifts and permission to leave and return was ok. I do like views from high buildings…and this one is rather special.

This is a great attraction. We visited this late one afternoon and stayed to watch the sunset and the city lights come on. Well worth the visit, you can see forever! Don't miss out on the fantastic restaurant on the 77th floor.

Visited here recently, apart from the view there is absolutely nothing else the tower/ skywalk has to offer. The attraction could include:
Maps of the City
Telescopes
Guides on hand to pass on information
Background music
Something to point out what exactly you are looking at
It was a very flat experience, topped off by the security guard sitting watching a movie on his phone lacking the common sense to turn the volume down.

I would recommend a quick visit for the view but the customer experience is diabolical.

I wanted to see the tower and visit the observation deck. After navigating the construction site that are the streets around it (due to the construction of the Metro), I got there. Spectacular blue color against the clear Riyadh sky.
A mall inside. Large and spatious and with all the usual.western brands you'd expect.
The sky deck however is cash only (and they charge an admin fee for it in top of the price). So if like me you didn't have cash on you...tough luck. There is an ATM close by, you you have a debit card.
I'll go back with cash, but it was a disappointing experience.
