Undoubtedly the best view in Chicago. However you must get your timing right with the weather, and visit on a clear, sunny day. This is a good attraction to include in your CityPass or GoCard if you haven't seen Chicago from up high before. The "Tilt" however is not worth the extra money. There is also a loop whole which...

Don't miss 360 Chicago. This attraction offered spectacular views of Lake Michigan, beaches and waterfront, and the city of Chicago. If you look way out, you can even see Wrigley field. We visited on a Friday afternoon. It wasn't at all crowded and we were able to take in the breathtaking views without having to jockey for position. We thought... More

Afraid of heights but had to do it, wouldn't try the "tilt" but if you like being up high and a thrill seeker pay the extra to do it

We're proud of you. Not everyone with a fear of heights is able to brave a visit to the 94th floor. Thanks for the rating! More

You should visit this. The views are breath taking and worth the money and lift up 94 floors. There's a tilt experience which you can also pay extra for but the view is amazing on its own, that I dont think its worth the extra money

Thank you! TILT is the hot new attraction, but we think the views from the 94th floor more than justify a trip to 360 CHICAGO. We hope you visit again the next time you are in Chicago! More

360 Chicago offers nice views of Chicago for a price. It's similar to the Willis Tower but of course from a different location. Both have gimmicks. The Willis Tower has its glass ledges where we had to wait in long lines. The 360 has the "Tilt," where you hold on to parallel bars on a glass window contraption and are... More

We have traveled in and through Chicago frequently over the years, but have never taken the time to partake in some of the more common tourist type experiences. This time we did - and it was well worth it. We'd read that lines are hours long at times...so heads up, we went at 10am on a Sunday a.m. and went... More

We have done the glass ledge at the Willis Tower, which was a hassle to get up to, and in my opinion, not worth all the waiting in line, so I was a bit skeptical when I bought tickets to 360 Chicago. To my delight, it was a wonderful experience and everyone, both young and old totally enjoyed the experience.... More

Located near the very top of the John Hancock building, 360 Chicago is an entire observation deck floor. We were told to not spend the money, rather to go up to the bar on the 95th floor for free and enjoy a drink. However, everyone else in Chicago on the weekend was told that too - so the line up...

Great review. Thanks for taking the time to be thorough. What many visitors do not realize is that the cost of dinner/drinks at the restaurant (not affiliated with 360 CHICAGO) is very often quite a bit more than the price of general admission to our 94th floor observation deck. We're happy to hear you were able to skip the long... More

We used a Groupon which cut the cost it was only $52 for four of us. None of us could actually face the idea of the Tilt but we watched others dare to do this which was fun. The sights from the Observatory Deck are amazing. We were blessed it was a clear day and seeing all the ice on... More

This is admittedly a bit over the top (pun intended) from a price perspective, but you can't beat it for accessibility and views. We heard horror stories about the wait to get up to the top of the Sears Tower on the same day we went. The Tilt is worth it, especially for teens looking to experience something new. Order... More

Thanks for the review. We're glad you enjoyed TILT! We are proud to offer our guests shorter lines and lower general admission prices than Chicago's other observation deck. Purchasing tickets in advance from our website is great advice, especially during the summer months.
