Spent longer queuing than at the top but still enjoyed it

The top of the tower is a must visit spot. The views are incredible. The wait times and queues. Less so. But it’s to be expected

Have a look above the clouds!
Oct 2021
You won't be disappointed going up in Willis tower (old Sears tower). From the entrance at ground level to the top of this magnificent building are entertaining facts about Chicago. Then once you get to the top and step out onto the skydeck it has one of the best views you will ever find. Try your best to pick the clearest day possible but I have even been up here when overcast and looked down onto some clouds!

Surrounded by nothing but glass
Sep 2021
Who doesn't want to stand on top of an open view of the street 1000+ feet below you? That's what you get. 2 minutes in the sky view box with nothing but glass on all but one side. It's fun, and adds another dimension to the standard observation decks on skyscrapers. Plus you still get all the other sides of the bldg to spend as long as you want looking out from on high at Lake Michigan and the Chicago surroundings.

Unexpected and wonderful
Aug 2021 • Couples
We were in Chicago for an Amtrak train trip and decided to go up to the Skydeck. This was an unexpected pleasure. The basement path to the elevator is filled with very interesting vignettes about Chicago and the Tower. The Skydeck itself is captivating with its tremendous views. We highly recommend this.

Great Views!
Oct 2020
I absolutely loved the views. It was quite a nice experience. Easy to get to and staff were friendly. It was hard to do some things as they had COVID restrictions when I visited but I still had a good time and the VIEWS were DOPE.

A Must See!
Sep 2021
My husband and I ventured to the Skydeck on 09/11/2021 to finally knock if off our list of things to see!

The set up is really impressive. Even the walking line had photo-ops and interesting things to see before heading up the elevator to the top. It was very entertaining.

Once up at the top, the views are spectacular! We chose to go up at night to see the city lights. It did not disappoint. The ledge is worth the extra line time as it really gives you a full view of everything (to include under your feet)!

I highly recommend this tour as it is worth every second.
