The view from the 360 Observatory is incredible, on a cloudy day, a clear day, sunset or after dark . If you are feeling adventurous, I recommend you try the Tilt.

"Great views...long line!"
TripAdvisor user rating 4 out of 5

We had a fantastic time at the top taking pictures and would do it all over again, but the line was LONG. It kept winding through different rooms so was hard to estimate when the end would be. We ended up being about as long in line (45 mins) as on top. Would have been nice if there were wait times posted as we almost missed our reservations for dinner following, but the view was fantastic.

"Great Views and Good Neighborhood Exhibits"

We lived in Chicago for years but visited as tourists. We went on a cold and clear day so the views in all directions were excellent. Do take your time when going through the exhibits in the entry level; they give great background on the many city neighborhoods.

Visited in mid afternoon and stayed for the sunset view. Views were spectacular and sunset very nice. Good glasses of wine added to the experience. Price of admission somewhat high, but spent a very pleasant couple of hours there. Would recommend.

"One of my favorite observation decks!"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed December 09, 2017 NEW
So when going to Chicago, you want to see the skyscrapers and the whole skyline. Well that is what an observation deck is for! I have been to both the "360 Chicago" and the Willis Tower Observation Deck. In my opinion, this observation deck is so much better and worth the money. It is open all day long and when going up there you can see all different views of the city. It really is 360. They also have an attraction up there called the "Tilt" which I participated in. I thought that it was actually kinda of scary and I am usually not afraid of heights. This deck also has a bar, many places to sit, an outdoor area, and much more. I strongly recommend going here and getting a day & night pass!
