  • What amazing view from all four sides of the building. The price is not cheap, especially if you add the tilt but it will be worth your money for sure. We went up about 45 min before the sunset. This was a perfect time. You can see the city and lake with daylight, watch a beautiful sunset over the city and then see the lights as it gets dark. The sunset reflecting off the lake was absolutely breathtaking. It was not crowded and could find window front views. The line to the elevator was long but moved quickly.
  • Absolutely a must-see in Chicago! This tower is pretty amazing. The entrance is pretty cool with all sorts of amazing Chicago facts on the walls. I love how the criss-cross beams that make up the structure are visible on the inside as well. We went on kind of a cloudy day, but even still the view of the city was awesome. Excellent viewing opportunities on each 4 sides of the building. There's even a bar if you want to get something to drink! We did the Tilt which was so fun, and freaky at the same time. I honestly was not expecting to tilt out as far as we did but that made it even more fun! 100% recommend everyone does it. A weird little oddity that was both terrifying and cool at the same time was the amount of spiders that make their up up that high on the building. A lot of the widows are just covered in them, and it's so strange since they're so high up, but was kind of neat. There's a wonderful gift shop with mostly reasonably priced items for your Chicago merchandise needs.
  • Spent four days in Chicago from the UK and this was the first place we went. What an amazing modern building that definitely stands out in the Chicago skyline. We went up the building about mid morning. The price to go up and for tilt are pretty reasonable. There weren't any queues as it was a Thursday, so we went straight up. It's amazing how quick the lift is to the 94th floor. The views are just spectacular! There are digital maps so you can zoom in and out and scroll around so you know what you're looking at. Tilt was fun. It makes you a bit nervous as you start to tilt out and face down, but it's definitely worth it. The staff are friendly, welcoming and happy go help. Definitely worth having a drink at the Cloud Bar while you relax and take in the views. I would definitely recommend visiting!
  • Had 7pm reservation. Crammed every inch of the elevator with a body, which was uncomfortable and not enjoyable at all. Reaching the top, lots of children, running around, and a bit difficult to get a view due to lots of people everywhere. We waited for about 20 minutes, so that we could squeeze in between others. View is amazing. In every direction, it's breathtaking. They had a DJ playing an it had a fun vibe. The Cloud deck was a great addition. Being able to feel the open air up that high was a bonus! They sanitized the Tilt between each group which was nice. Totally worth the view at night!! Would come again.
  • Even though visibility was limited, this was still absolutely worth the money! I purchase general admission ahead of time online, and had an amazing time. The staff are all super friendly and welcoming. The views are amazing, and the seating is ample for sitting and enjoying the view. On the way in, you walk through rooms with tons of Chicago facts and history. There are also tons of souvenir options. All in all, it’s a fun experience for any tourist.
