Great views but very long lines. I would recommend going up but not enough to wait in line for an hour.

I was there back in 2015. First time we actually decided not to go up because of the clouds, but later that day, when it was already dark - I experienced this unique attraction. And that was actually great!

Great views on the top of the Willis Tower. The line moved quickly when we were there the end of April.

It was really amazing how neat they handle this attraction. An incredible landscape and a vertifinous experience on the glass extension of the building almost 300 meters above ground.

We enjoyed the 360° views of the city! The glass floor was insane. The wait near sunset was long and I was annoyed watching the ridiculous amount of self-gratuitous photos being taken. Ugh. Tip: don’t visit when the sun is low in the evening sky....More

Actually that’s the whole point. 100’ feet above the city and it looks like you’re floating above it all. Breathtaking, gnarly, exhilarating, a main attraction

Your stay at the top can easily be done in 2 hours, but your total time will depend on the wait in line. Go late and lines are much shorter. And avoid spring break!
