Old Faithful goes off almost hourly. There are benches and sidewalks in the area. If you get there early enough before the geyser goes off, you may get a good view of the geyser. Even if you aren't right up front, the geyser is large enough and shoots high enough that you will still definitely be able to see it. Our kids thought it was really cool, but they lost interest in watching it after a few minutes. If it is windy, you may get a little damp breeze blowing on you. But, you won't get burned because unless you go where you aren't supposed to, there's plenty of distance between spectators and the geyser. We saw moose wandering around near the geyser area.
