Travel 470 ft. in the Air to the Reunion Tower’s GeO-Deck and Constellation

One of my favorite buildings in Dallas is the Reunion Tower. It is one of the most iconic buildings in Dallas with over 250 LED light fixtures that shine brightly at night to celebrate local sport wins or commemorate special events.

The Reunion Tower, locally known as “the ball,” is an observation tower providing visitors with a 360-degree panoramic view of Dallas. In only 68-seconds, an elevator ride takes you to the top where you can explore the observation deck, called “the GeO-Deck,” and that is exactly what I did this past weekend. The weather was perfect. Not too cold, not too hot, and just the right amount of wind.

Our trip to the Reunion Tower was quite easy. Parking was easily accessible and not too far. As we began our trip to the GeO-Deck, the staff welcomed us with smiles and told us interesting facts about the Reunion Tower. We also took a fun photo with props in front of a green screen to remember our visit to the Reunion Tower.

While at the GeO-Deck, I was able to view Dallas from so many new perspectives – both from inside and outside of the deck. Free telescopes allowed me to view landmarks up close, like the Trinity River, the Margaret Hunt Bridge, the Perot Museum, and so much more. Touch-screen interfaces gave me access to interactive maps of Dallas and live high-definition cameras to view the city at the touch of my fingertips.

Viewing Dallas from above is so magical and pointing out all of my favorite spots was so fun.

One of my favorite activities at the GeO-Deck included the Constellation, which is placed along the inner wall. The Constellation is the Reunion Tower’s new interactive experience where visitors can log their trip by creating a single “star.” To do this, I added my name, personalized an avatar, and selected a few emoji like icons to create an illustration. For each visit to the GeO-Deck, I can add to my star resulting in a larger Constellation. I cannot wait to log future trips with friends and family.

Towards the end of my trip, I scanned my photo receipt at the kiosk by the elevator. Here I was able to select a background for my photo and emailed myself a free digital copy.

Believe it or not, I have only been to the Reunion Tower a handful of times and I am already itching to go back. I would love to see the sunset from the GeO-Deck, enjoy fine-dining at Five-Sixty (Wolfgang Puck’s rotating restaurant), and order a few drinks at the Cloud Nine Café.

This is a must-do for all Dallasites, whether you have lived in the city your entire life or are looking for a new date spot. If you have family or friends in town, this is the perfect site to visit. Or, if you are new to town, make it a point to tour the Reunion Tower and view Dallas from above.

    This is so cool! I loooove going to the tops of buildings in cities and getting to see the view. I’ll have to do this when I visit Dallas.

    Looks abosultely awesome! But going that high in 68 seconds may not be ideal for me! Scared of heights! Love the post though!

      The great thing about the GeO-Deck is that you can view the city from inside and outside. I highly recommend staying inside if you are afraid of heights.

    Bored and raised in Dallas, I’ve never made time to visit. I want to visit, it’s just isn’t a priority. This reminded me that I’m missing out on my city! The telescopes are going to make the trip worth it I bet. Thanks for sharing!
