Skydeck Chicago - Willis Tower, Chicago
Categories: Observation Decks, Architectural Buildings, Tourist Spots
Take a look at Chicago from the top of Skydeck Chicago - Willis Tower, the second tallest building in the country. Still called "Sears Tower" by most locals, the 108-story building looms over the city with a height of 442 m (1,451 ft). One of the world's tallest freestanding structures, the skyscraper features an observation deck on the 103rd floor. The popular skydeck is 412 m (1,353 ft) high, offering unobstructed views of Chicago and its sprawling suburbs. On clear days, the vista stretches far over the Illinois plains and across Lake Michigan, all the way to Indiana, Wisconsin, and Michigan. For a dizzying look from a glass-floored ledge jutting out into the air, get in line for the high-speed elevator to the top.

We were here on a gorgeous evening for a corporate event. Absolutely gorgeous views and you could see forever in all directions. The glass deck on the 103rd floor is not for the faint of heart. It can... read more »
The Willis Tower itself is very fascinating and, of course, an amazingly high building. The Skydeck not only offers a great city view from the top of the Willis Tower but it'll also give you butterfli... read more »
An amazing view but with a few draw backs. Queues are huge! i mean we would of waited a couple of hours to get up there, so we spent the money on a fast pass, double the price but got us up there passing over 500 people i think. Now this pass doesn't get you down quick so be prepared to wait in the huge queue to come down too. The view is amazing, you can see all of Chicago from here and the lake and its a must for any traveler. I cant comment but I've been told the John Hancock building is quicker and easier to get up and cheaper, but i cant comment myself. There is a shop up here and in the end if your coming to Chicago you must go somewhere high to see the view. Just avoid on weekends.
I HAD ONLY ONE BIG PROBLEM. Great experience for my family and I !! Long waiting lines because it was a busy day. In a sunny day, you will enjoy beautiful views of this great city. THE BIG PROBLEM I HAD WAS THE WAY MANAGEMENT OF THIS PLACE LET PEOPLE LINE UP ON THEIR OWN BEFORE GETTING ON TOP OF THE DECK. THEY SHOULD HAVE A BETTER SYSTEM SO PEOPLE DON'T CUT YOU IN LINE. I ALMOST HAD TO PUNCH THE NOSE OF A STUPID MORON WHO THOUGHT THAT WITH HIS BIG SIZE BODY HE COULD DO AND SAY WHATEVER HE WANTED TO.
I would highly recommend going to skydeck if you go to Chicago for a vacation. Great to see the city from Floor no. 103. We visited around 6 in the evening so there were too much crowd. We had to wait around 3 hours to get to the top as there were many people who wanted to see the city in day/night views - same as us :). But all the frustration, anger, pain in the line have gone away when we were on top. Never hesitate to purchase the photo that they take on the ledge.. The other ledges were not monitored so there were lot lot of people and they want to hog all the places and time over there. Overall a must go place and must-do experience. One off of my bucket list. Note: Purchasing a Chicago city pass could take you to top within 30 minutes. Unfortunately, I was not aware that Go Chicago pass doesn't serve as a fast pass.
Get a CityPass, skip the lines. It's so worth it for the, no joke, hours you might spend in line at this place. You could be in line for an hour just to get in in the summer months, and your time in the box will take less than 30 seconds. The view is great and it's cool, but only if you get to skip the line so you can do other things with your day.

Very touristy, but what would you expect? Great views on a clear day. Stepping out on the glass floor 103 floors up is not for the faint of heart.
