“Great View and Value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

I thought this was a great attraction. I went to the 100thfloor were the viewing deck includes some glass panels in the floor. From there you can go down to the 97th floor and have a snack or a beer and enjoy the view from there as well. Some of the earlier reviews thought this was expensive but from someone who visits observation decks like this whenever I visit a new place that has one, the price is right in line with all of them. I believe it is well worth the money. The day I went which was on Sunday morning, there was no wait at all. I purchased my ticket and went right on the elevator. The elevator going up moves very fast but you do not feel any discomfort at all. I highly recommend doing this when visiting Shanghai if you like to view the city from high up!

“Fun!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

Visited March 6, 2013 on a relatively clear weekday. Not too crowded, not expensive and out of town guests also really enjoyed it. One time is enough but glad we went. A must-see when in Shanghai if you can find a low smog day!

“Huge but not for long!”
