Very good

Great views
Jun 2017 • Couples
A great ride in the lift to the two of the tower was not claustrophobic. Once up there were many vantage points to get great pictures. To keep children (and adults) amused there were many car games. There is also a good view down the middle shaft of the tower to the hotel area.

Should have been better for the price
Jul 2017 • Family
This was good for the price of approx $60 AUD and could have been a great experience. The staff however are extremely rude. We were left sitting for 40mins after being kitted up with numerous groups of Chinese being prioritised, who had only just arrived. They only got to us when there was no one left. We didn't get any decent photos of the experience at the camera points as we were rushed through due to the fact that the Chinese visitors before us had spent an inordinate amount of time posing in different positions so that we were told there was no time left. Overall what should have been a fantastic experience was average at best.

Good view, nice skywalk
May 2017
The view over the city is nice, even with constant (?) fog. The queue was not bad. The skywalk is affordable priced being around 40€ with the extra picture. The price includes one pic, but the second one the are selling you separately is obviously taken in better spot showing the pearl tower on backround. You need your passport to skywalk and no cameras or any loose items are not allowed when walking outside, not even sunglasses/glasses. The price was ok compared to some other places I have seen skywalk tours done.

Fantastic views from the 88th floor Observation area if you get a clear day
Apr 2017
Luckily we didn't have long to wait for the lift to go up to the 88th floor and then we could enjoy the panoramic views from the Observation floor. Unfortunately it was a smoggy day and the view was limited to just over the Huangpu river, but nevertheless it was definitely worth the visit. 2 tall buildings next to Jin Mao are the Shanghai Tower & World Financial Centre (known as the bottle opener). There are a couple of souvenir shops where you can buy postcards with views in summer with clear skies.

We were lucky & it was not crowded, but a longer wait to go down in the lift.

Skywalk - an unbelievable outdoor experience...
May 2017 • Couples
...at 350 m above ground. Highest outdoor skywalk at a building in the world. Very strickt safety checks. Bring your passport with you. Lockers are available for any valuables incl. smartphones, wallets, rings. Glasses can be kept, but will be tied with special belt. Even shoes are available for rent, if you come with sandals or flip flops. However an enjoyable 20 min outdoor walk!!!
The ordinary observation deck at Jin Mao is just average (therefore only 4stars). If you don't want to go outdoor, you'd better choose the Shanghai Tower or the World Financial Center close by.

Never On A Saturday Night!
Mar 2017
We were in Shanghai for 3 days on a Crystal Cruise and took several tour-guided excursions. Three of them took us up to the observation deck of the Jin Mao Building in the heart of the Financial District. The panoramic views of Shanghai are fabulous if the "fog" has burned off and you are there on a week day. All the guides use the word fog for the orange haze that stings the eyes and smells like Los Angeles in August of 1980. The mentioning of "fog" is usually followed by a canned speech about all the progress the People's Republic of China has made against air pollution. Our Shanghai By Night excursion was unfortunately on a Saturday night. That is when thousands of locals go to the Jin Mao Building. The venue tries to take in as many fees as possible resulting in a miserable crush. We were never even able to get to a window to see outside. This is a worthwhile venue as long as you DO NOT GO on a Saturday night.

Took only a few minutes to be transported 88 floors
It's possible to do a 'skywalk' on the outside of the tower and a certificate and photograph are duly presented
Superb views across the city from all directions

Quite a building
Mar 2017 • Couples
This building was interesting. We go to the 118th floor at 30 feet per second. And they do these elevators right too. None of the jerky start and stop. The acceleration and deceleration are so smooth, there are only two reasons to know how high you are getting so quickly. One is your ears pop, the other is the dot representing the elevator on the building representation is really moving up fast too!
When we get out and move around the observation tower, there are two buildings very close that are taller still. For the one, I have to press my nose up against the glass to see the top. It is the Shanghai Tower at 2073 feet, the second tallest building in the world, and this building actually has some heft to it. (Unlike the world's tallest in Dubai, the Burj Khalifa, which to me seemed like nothing but a needle into the sky.)
The guide "Darrin" tells us the Shangai Tower it is still mostly unoccupied. I never find out if it is because they can't find tenants, or if it is just too new. In any case, it is a beautiful building, that sort of curves around itself. I am going to try to attach a picture of the 3 tall ones together.
The observation floor actually has a door to go out onto a narrow ledge. Except to get there, you have to put on two safety harnesses, and a crash helmet, and get by a couple locked doors. Then you lean over the edge, and have you picture taken.
The view from here is spectacular. View is virtually 360 degrees, except for the part blocked by the other two buildings. This is a ride worth taking, just for the view alone.

Great perspective, so so view
Apr 2017 • Friends
The views were great. The Pearl Tower and the Shanghai's skyline highest building can be seen from here. I think it was a good chose and it wasn't too expensive, however , all lights were on inside, so the windows were full of reflexes.

On the other side, the windows were filthy, so although the perspective of the city from the top of the building was cool, we were really disappointed.

The best observation deck in Shanghai
Mar 2017 • Couples
At 88 stories, this building is still only the 3rd tallest in Shanghai. The tallest building in Shanghai (also the 2nd tallest in the world), is literally across the street, and another which ranks 4th in the world is also very close by. Access to the glass enclosed observation deck is by very quiet and quick elevators (one up, one down). At the top you will find a panoramic view of the Shanghai skyline and several souvenir counters. As you wait in line, make sure you see the wall presentation that compares the Shanghai skyline with that of New York City. Note also that the waiting line at the bottom passes through a picture taking enterprise that will then have your photo ready when you reach the top. You can decline. Although they do not pursue you, the vending team at the top is quite shrill and aggressive in trying to sell the photos as you pass by. One caveat. Shanghai is often very overcast, so check the weather before you go up. If it is not what passes for a sunny day, you will be able to see only close by buildings in any detail. Panoramic pictures will be very blurred and faint. Many of my first pictures were very, very indistinct because of the haze (and this WAS described as a sunny day!). I had amber sunglasses with me and used the lens as a crude filter on subsequent shots. The pictures had much more detail and color. The best shots of the skyline are not from here, but taken at night from across the river or from along the Bund. This is a case where ground level may be better than being at the top.
