Located near downtown San Antonio, just a short walk from the Riverwalk, the 15-acre HemisFair Park has undergone extensive renovation and additions over the years. Today, it features, among other things, exhibits remaining from the ’68 World’s Fair, a labrinyth of cascading waterfalls, a children’s playground and, the landmark of the San Antonio skyline, the 750-foot tall Tower of the Americas.
An attraction in and of itself, the Tower offers an observation deck, café, restaurant and a 4D theatre ride. Admission to the observation deck is $5 for adults, $4 for seniors, and $3 for children. Admission to the Skies Over Texas theatre ride is $6 for adults and $5.50 for seniors and children. HemisFair Park is open to the public at no cost.
