The 360 restaurant has a capacity of around 300 guests. It takes around 72 minutes for the restaurant to revolve 360 degrees. Talking about its uniqueness, this tower has a skywalk where you can walk on the podium outside the tower and have a thrilling experience of the height ! It also has a glass floor where you can stand and experience the height of the tower while being inside the tower.
Peeking into history, this tower took around 40 months to build, being completed in 1976. Apart from that it took $63 million as a cost to build.
