You take an elevator up to the top observation deck. There is a revolving chart house restaurant one floor down where you can have a drink or a meal. There is also a 4D theatre on the ground floor.

It's a tower. You go up and look out over the city. Not a thrill for me but I did like the Flags of Texas. Very interesting history. In the base of the tower they have 4D short movies. They're a little cheesy but included...More

Yes for reservations. All views are good. The inner seating is elevated and all seats face outward (no one sits with back to view). Give yourself plenty of time for the elevator. We waited quite a bit for it.
