“Must see - great view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2013

It is worth pay and go to this place. The view from 100th floor (474m) is fantastic but the angle of the glass wall is not very good to take a pictures. I recommend to visit the bar in 94th floor and enjoy the great view. The best is to visit this place afternoon and wait for a sunset.

“The view was great”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2013

Instead of going to the observation floor, we went to the 91st floor of the Park Hyatt to their restaurant. We had a great lunch -- there is a special Lunch Menu Set. We were fortunate to be seated at a window table and the day was only a little hazy so we had terrific views. We had decided that if the restaurant were full we would have a drink at the bar. Staff were friendly and service was attentive. We were both wearing dungarees and most customers wore business attire; I think we would've felt out of place in shorts.

“Impressive”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2013

The visuals are awesome. The elevator is exclusive for tours, and there is a crazy light show in there. The whole experience was very nice, and from the top you can see the old part of the city, and understand a little better how this huge metropolis is growing.

“Cool, Modern City-Viewing”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2013

Seeing all of Shanghai from over 100 floors up is pretty exciting, and it feels really safe. The floor is thick marble and concrete, though there are glass parts where you can look at the street directly below the Center.

The high-speed elevator has some interesting lighting effects that make it feel like you're going up or down visually, and just the aesthetics of the path up to the top is amazing.

Going on a CLEAR day is a must, otherwise all you'd see is haze and fog. There'll most likely be tourists there, just as a warning, though they have limits as to how many people can be on the observation deck at a single point to prevent having it too crowded for enjoyment.

“Worth a visit.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2013

We had a great experience on the top most fl;oor, however the glass bottom panels as floorings are very narrow and therefore reduces the pleasure of standing and statring at a cabbie metres below! We decieded to drink a bottle of beer on the SKY 99 but were rudly asked vacate "their section" if other members of the group were not drinking. Dont expect our 14 year to drink buddy!
Overalll : Worth a visit.
