For more than 35 years, the 750-foot-tall Tower of the Americas has offered residents and tourists of San Antonio, Texas, the most breathtaking view of the Alamo City – visitors dine at the Tower’s revolving restaurant or enjoy the scenery from the observation deck. Now, Landry’s Restaurants, Inc. has taken the experience to a whole new level. Among the improvements are an upscale eatery, banquet facility and a Texas-themed 4-D, multi-sensory theater.
The tower weighs 80 million pounds, and has 952 steps to get to the top. The “top house” is so well balanced that it takes just a 1 horsepower motor to rotate the structure. The tower’s restaurant at the top is named “The Eyes of Texas”. The “top house” (the round revolving structure at the top of the tower), is 76 feet tall. The height of the concrete shaft (which is partially hidden inside the top house), is 605 feet tall. The external observation deck can accommodate a maximum of 340 people, while the internal deck can accommodate 500 people. At 800 feet-per-minute, it takes only 43 seconds for the elevators to climb to the top. The restaurants occupy 10,150 square feet, the observation levels are 8,800 square feet, while the stairs, elevators, and mechanicals occupy 1,150 square feet.
