  • Existing view. The tilt on the upper floor is very nice. Search the internet for discount/bundle tickets (there are many) 
  • VA one day in heaven of course to enjoy the view and take lots of pictures. A little map to understand the main buildings also help. Offers the best view of the city and Lake Michigan.

  • Was a lunch visit, with a great view. Servers were very hospitable, and the food selection, even though limited (at that time), was of a good quality. Drink selection was very good as well.

  • We visited 360 Chicago instead of going through the price/wait of the Sears Tower, and this was a solid experience that was just as good. It was fun to try to pick out places we'd seen from above. The area where you wait in line is made into a museum of sorts with videos and things to read, which is nice, though we didn't have to wait more than 5 minutes to get in. I thought it was cool that your ticket can get you back in at night for the opposite view- didn't get around to it but would do it next time. Ultimately it's kind of pricey for what is essentially a room with big windows- but that's a tourist attraction for you. We still enjoyed it and glad we went- got some great pictures.
  • I love it! Skyscraper it's my passion ! And be in A this awesome city of skyscrapers and haven't been on 360CHICAGO it's a crime guys!🙆🙈🙆 Because just here you can look around and open this city of every him sides.I recommend to go on a 360 and meet a sunset,enjoy how sun goes down , bringing a city's lighters out..🌅🌆🌃🎇 It's unforgettable feeling to see this view. Just here , just at night awakes totally different and magnificent Chicago ,that touches your heart ,yr mind by opening your real soul! PS:and don't forget to try a drinks at the bar;)
  • The experience that you get from here is definitely better than the Sears Tower. If you visit the place on a clear day or a clear night or on a weekend, you should probably expect lot of people in the waiting line. But still, there wouldn't time to wait, and throughout the wait line, you will be welcomed by several wall paintings and pictures and artifacts that depict the history of the Windy City. Then comes the elevator. It will be a 45 second ride :P Yes, the personnel there mentioned it's a 45-second ride :D Get some gum, since its a 94-floor elevator if the ear-popping bothers you. And then you enter the observation area! With all the window views, don't forget to get a glance of yourself from the mirrors fixed over your head on the ceiling, possibly a nice capture for your group selfies :P :D The tilt with an extra 7 bucks is really worth it! You'll enjoy the experience even if you are scared of heights. And yes, don't forget to get a drink at the bar before you leave out! :)
  • This place was recommended to us instead of the Willis tower. Access to elevators was fast. No waiting time. There was a lot of humidity in the air but the view was still great. It's a must-see attraction while in Chicago.
  • I think this is one of the best attractions you can go to in Chicago. I've been to the Sears Tower before and I found that was a little bit higher but I never experienced it with the new glass box that you can stand it. This building had a pretty long line to actually get up there but then you had an unlimited amount of time you can spend up there. What I believe is that if you go to the bar that is for free and then you can just walk over because you're in the same floor or you can see the view so I do not understand how there's a fee to get up there unless there's something I am misunderstanding. But in the end it was a great thing to see with my girlfriend.
