Located in the heart of downtown Dallas, the GeO-Deck at Reunion Tower offers visitors the only indoor/outdoor observation deck in the city with unique views of Dallas and its surrounding communities – from 470 feet in the air! As it is affectionately known by locals, “The Ball” has been a staple of the Dallas skyline since 1978. The 259 exterior LED lights that build its iconic spherical shape can be seen for miles, but it’s what’s inside that counts.

Plan for Texas weather
Prepare to trade cowboy boots for flip flops! Let the breeze cool you down on a sunny day, or shelter from the chill while taking in the 360-degree view of Dallas.
Make parking arrangements in advance
Confirm that the parking lot can accommodate your vehicle type and if cash or credit is required for payment. Identify the best place to drop-off and pick-up group members. Reunion Tower has onsite personal vehicle and bus parking and is ready to direct your group to our convenient drop-off locations.
