The view is great and the photo spots are good it is a must in the city. On the other hand all the north section was closed and the Tilt experience is not worth it.

Fascinating to see Chicago from 94th floor. The 360 Chicago observation deck, previously know as John Hancock building, is a must see for locals as well as for tourists. The tilting glass side is a bone chilling experience. You can see Chicago downtown, the skyscrapers, people walking on the streets, buses, boats on the Lake Michigan etc, the whole 360 degree view. I think for the titling ride, you need to pay extra. We took City pass (you can either go for city pass or fast pass) and mind it, its really really helpful. It's both time and money saving. You can skip the huge queue which can have wait time of 2-3 hours. We went at night and the whole city was glistening with lights like christmas decorations. There is a wall, just before the tilt entrance, which is totally open. Yes its totally open, you can feel the outside air at 94th floor. The only thing which separates you from outside world is a wire mesh and a iron railing. Thats it. Who does that on 94th floor. ;) I was very fascinated seeing this. I have posted one pic of this iron mesh. Have a great experience guys!!!
