Geocache Description:

... it's a DOOZY! The cache is completely wheelchair-accessible, but people suffering from acrophobia, agoraphobia, or "Otis-aphobia" might have problems.

Your mission (should you choose to accept it) is to pay the elevator-access fee, ride to the top of the tallest building west of the Mississippi, and post a photo of your visit to the top! Be creative with your photo: show off your GPS receivers, capture some of the view in the background, hold up signs, etc. Make sure all geocachers are front and center and that I can tell you're at the top. :)

Each geocacher logging this cache must post their OWN picture. If you and a friend go up and have your picture taken together but have separate geocaching accounts, each of you must post the picture. If there is no picture included with a log, it will probably be deleted.

Enjoy the spectacular view and numerous historical facts! But watch that first step!

HISTORICAL NOTE: I originally asked for one of the phone numbers of the outdoor booths, but both outdoor phone booths were removed for a New Years Eve 2002 concert held here. They were never replaced, and now the rides have taken over the outdoor platforms. Then I asked for the phone number of the one of the indoor payphones, but as of mid-2012 those are gone too. Progress!

=========================================================

If your log does not include a valid photo, I reserve the right to delete your log! As with most virtual caches, you are expected to PHYSICALLY visit the site to log a find. Internet searches and other 'remote' methods of locating the information do not qualify. Also, no "retroactive" finds based on visits before the cache was created (though at this point, I'd be impressed :) ).

And DO NOT use the cheesy photo background at the base of the building... I've seen it. :)

Additional Hints (No hints available.)
