I have! It's been over 3 years though, but I remember you get a good, high, view of the pool, MGM Grand, New York - New York, which obviously looks taller, Bellagio, etc. The deck is open, but it's flanked by a brown chain link fence for protection so it's not scary to go up. I've also been to Sears and Stratosphere but that's it for me.

Eiffel Tower - Paris
London Eye - London (it basically functions like an observation tower)

I've probably left one out.

Me either. I always contemplate going, but opt for something else instead. I probably should have done the Eiffel Tower when I was there though. I stood under it, does that count?
