Top o’ Texas Tower

Marvel at The Lone Star State ... from 500 feet high


You don't have to take a ride on an airplane to see both downtown Dallas and downtown Fort Worth at the same time.

Come to Fair Park and, depending on the weather, enjoy a panorama of the DFW Metroplex like no other out there.

One of the newest rides on the Midway at Fair Park, the Top o' Texas Tower smoothly lifts you 500 feet above the ground. Then, it slowly rotates to give you a 360-degree view of Fair Park, Dallas, and places beyond!

The air-conditioned gondola seats 100 passengers and takes just four and a half minutes to take you to the top of Texas before it gently sets you back down. At night, your glide up the tower will be accompanied by more than one million programmable LED lights that are synchronized with the Midway's light show.

During the State Fair of Texas and selected other Fair Park-wide events, come see every angle of North Texas like you never have before by taking a ride on the Top o' Texas Tower!
