We checked the calendar and there are no times when we want to go up the tower (sunset/evening). Our family is fit and would like to hike up the stairs but we had a couple of questions...
1) Can we expect a long line to buy stairs access from the base?
2) If we hike up the stair to the second level do we pay a fee to take the elevator to the third level? Is the long line there to buy those tickets? Can we buy those tickets on the second level or is this purchased at the base? I am assuming if it is sold at the base it would be at the same place to buy stairs access?
3) Is the line from level 2 to level 3 typically very busy?
