  • Do NOT COME HERE. You wait in line forever to get in & out! It’s just horrible, not ran well and a pain! Worst experience in Chicago. Do not come to this

  • Spectacular views of a great city! Picturesque place to visit.. For Chicago residents you get 50% off general admission ticket which is awesome! It’s a nice place to just relax and enjoy at night, weekdays aren’t as busy staff are accommodating and friendly it’s worth the visit!
  • 360 Chicago great for both tourists and locals to see the city. While there we ran into few locals that just have not made it up to the observation deck before and were in awe of how nice the views of the city are. Bring a camera and get yourself a drink at the bar and enjoy the free music. I would give it 5 stars if the area had a better bar with some good food.
  • Magnificent view definitely worth seeing, skip the line ( most times the wait is at least an hour) with your go Chicago pass, and military discount is 50% off for now. Area is roomy up top with a great lounge and snack bar area. The TILT window was cool but a long wait line still worth doing.
  • Again, I do not normally do such activities. But this was for work. But I am glad I did. Chicago birthed Skyscrapers, so it is only appropriate to take in 360 degree views of the city in all its majesty. And the views are amazing, even on a cloudy and misty day, like ours was. How did Chicago manage to not obscure its shore in giant buildings, in a city of giant buildings? Amazing. There is an excellent gift shop, bar, and the Tilt, of course, if you dare being suspended over the side of the building, with just you and the glass separated from a very deep fall. The prices for the pictures accompanying this are absolutely outrageous, however, not that you are required to buy one. You only need about an hour to enjoy this site, and will appreciate it. There is a Starbucks and Cheesecake Factory below if you want coffee or food. It is well worth the visit.
  • Amazing place to go and spend half an hour for great photos. The view is incredible. Also, it's just 10-12 minutes from Chicago center by Uber (10$). Access is easy and we spend not more than 5-10 minutes to pass the gate to the top which was so nice. In other similar places it's crowded and you need to wait hours.
