List of the highest observation decks in the world

I am not sure how many are aware of this list but it has been there for at least a year and is of interest to all SSPers. It is the most comprehensive list I have ever seen of the highest observation decks in the world. I was also thinking with our collective knowledge some of us could think of observation decks missing from the list. Also it might make for an interesting discussion about observation decks in general. Also the historical list of highest observation deck over time dating back to the Eiffel Tower is interesting.

Here is the list: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Observation_deck

Rialto Towers observation deck (Melbourne) is now closed to the public. Superfluous with nearby Eureka Tower.

It is cool to see how many of these I have actually visited.

Vancouver's is missing (Harbour centre) from the list. As are the two observation towers on the Canadian side of Niagara Falls.

Europe is badly undercounted.
