Been trying since 2001, but other than make Glasgow look silly, the Glasgow Tower has failed to stay open or operate for any significant time.
It's now set to try and open again, with Saturday 19 July 2014 being the date set for the fun to start again.
Optimistically, it also has a season closing date scheduled, for 2 November 2014.
Will it stay open until then, or will it be closed down before getting there?
Glasgow Science Centre tower to reopen on 19 July
The Glasgow Science Centre tower is to reopen on 19 July, almost four years after visitors were last allowed up it.
The 127m (416ft) rotating tower has been plagued by problems since it opened in 2001 and has been closed for more than 80% of its life.
The Science Centre said the £10m structure had undergone a £1.8m revamp with repairs to the thrust bearing and replacement of the existing lifts.
Trips to the 105-metre high viewing cabin will cost £4.95.
The tower will remain open for the rest of Science Centre's summer season before closing on 2 November for the winter.
I have to confess that while I usually like this sort of 'attraction', I never managed to find any enthusiasm for this project - either when it was merely a proposal, or after it was built (I won't say completed, since that status is perhaps still debatable).
The idea of a tiny viewing gallery that a lucky few could only get access to via a lift (a single lift, which also severely limits the number of visitors, and how long they can stay up there) just struck me as being nothing more than a gimmick, probably used to sell the idea of having the Guinness World Record for the tallest fully rotating freestanding structure in the world and now being the tallest freestanding structure in Scotland (until something else takes the title).
It seems a pretty poor result, all the more so if it has to shut for the winter, just when it could give access to some of the best views of the hills surrounding Glasgow.
