It was a very cool experience to stand on a clear, plexiglass floor and look way down! The wait for our turn at the window was really long, and we waited as others took positions in the window to take pictures. Not so on our turn; people crowded into the window immediately and

Not sure the point of timed tickets here, spent an hour and 15 mins in various lines. Currently you get 90 seconds in a ledge box for photos. Overall good view, and a cool experience. Just don't try to plan for Sunset photos, you'll only get shots of your time in varies lines.

Warning! We waited in line for an hour and were only allowed 60 seconds to take pictures on the Skydeck. With Covid going on, the only group pics you can take are their professional ones which cost $30 each. Not worth the money in my opinion!

I did some research before purchasing tickets so I knew to expect a long wait if we didn’t arrive early. We arrived with tickets in hand at 10:30am on a Sunday. The wait was about 15 minutes. The express elevator was out of service so we got a mini elevator adventure on our way

Thank you for visiting us at Skydeck Chicago! We are glad to hear that you enjoyed the amazing panoramic views from our 103rd floor. For future reference, to experience a shorter wait time, we suggest visiting first thing in the morning when we open to the public at 10 AM October through February or at 9 AM March through September, and pre-purchasing your tickets on our website.
