Paramounts Eiffel Tower is a beautiful icon easily seen from the highway and a great way to begin your day at Paramount Kings Dominion. Located near the main entrance at the end of International Street, the Eiffel Tower is taller than any other attraction in the park. Standing 332ft tall, the Eiffel Tower has a faded teal paint job. Around the Eiffel Towers base is great landscaping with nice trees and a beautiful garden. Running two elevators, the Eiffel Tower has a great capacity and therefore generally is a walk-on because the elevators can hold a good amount of people. Once you board the elevator, you swiftly ascend the tower and can see some of the trees around you. At the top, you can walk around a circular platform 275 feet in the air. I enjoyed the spectacular view from the top. It was a great way to see the parks layout, the outstanding roller coasters, and how busy the park is. Also at the top are binoculars that guests can use for a quarter. My favorite attraction to look at was Volcano-the Blast Coaster. Watching the train shoot out of the volcano was amazing from high in the air. You are allowed to walk around the platform for as long as you want. At night the view is even more amazing as you can see the park illuminated by all the lights. When youre done, you wait for an elevator and then descend to the bottom as quickly as you ascended it. An added plus is that the elevators are air-conditioned. Overall, an excellent way to see Paramount Kings Dominion and I highly recommend the Eiffel Tower to any first comer to the park to see the parks layout and crowd distribution. Also, this is a great relaxation ride.
