About Vancouver Lookout, Vancouver
Situated in the Vancouver Harbor Centre, the Vancouver lookout is a brilliant place to, as the name suggests, avail some spectacular views of the city. The lookout looks rather like a UFO and is in itself a sight worth seeing.
But the view from atop the Lookout is incomparable to anything else in the city. You can see the lovely harbor, the sprawling city, the beautiful natural wonders and everything in between from this awesome vantage point. Things to watch out for are the Stanley Park, the North shore Mountains and the city.
The 360 Degree view is a memorable experience and sure to be an amazing way to kick off your Vancouver Sightseeing expedition. They also provide complimentary guided tours in case you want to know more about the wonderful sights you are saying.

Vancouver Lookout, Vancouver Reviews
EPIC! The ticket you buy is valid for the entire day. So you not only get to see the city from up top during the day, but also during the night. I would recommend going here during the winter because of the short days (so you don't have to wait till 9.45pm to get up) and because of the snow. If you are lucky enough to go here when it's snowing, you'll have the view of your lifetime. Secret: What they don't advertise is the elevator ride. You get to the top in a glass wall elevator. You will zip up with cars and people on the street shrinking right in front of you. That was amazing!
Perhaps the best place in all of Vancouver to see its views. The Lookout has done very well. New theatre with neat exhibits on the ledges. I wish there were actual tours being conducted though or just guides walking around instead of just hanging out in the counter. Would also be nice to take out logos of corporate sponsors to put more highlights on Vancouver and its history and views. When will the elevators be fixed?
They could do with washing the windows here but I guess that's a bit hard. Still an amazing experience and worth it if you go once in the day and once at sunset/ night time. They have clean washrooms at the top and helpful guides. The penny crusher machine is working well.
The worst experience, The food was so cold, and It was served in two minutes after we ordered it. It was like the food was sitting for hours it was so disgusting, was so overpriced for the food that we received, I will make sure all the people I know they will never come back
I wish I could give different reviews based on my experience at the lookout. The actual attraction was slightly pricey but overall a cool thing-to-do with informative plates so one can learn about more the region. However, the real treat came when taking the elevator back down. Once reaching the ground floor, the elevator stopped working forcing us to be stuck for an hour. Although it was a bonding moment for those trapped, I was disappointed in the response from management. They half-heartedly offered an apology and gave us a refund after reminding us we wouldn’t be able to come back today given said refund. We were then informed it has happen previously so we weren’t the first victims. Something to consider before visiting. In March they let you climb the tower/received a beer at the end of the trek so maybe wait for that.
