The Montreal Tower Observatory is a world record holder...
At 165 meters high, and angled at 45 degrees, the Montreal Tower Observatory is indeed a world record holder, and by quite a bit. Its more famous cousin, in Pisa, is only a paltry 3.99 degrees. Designed as part of the 1967 Olympic Park, the Tower is now at the center of a large recreation and tourism complex whose neighbours include the Montreal Botanical Gardens, the Insectarium, the Biodome, and the Plantarium.
Those interested in photography, city planning, urban development, engineering, or sports history are likely to find the price point more palatable as compared to the average visitor who is just interested in exploring the city.
