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.

"Dine on 95th Floor and see more!"

Had read about dining in the Signature Room. We booked Sunday brunch, were whisked up to the 95th floor and seated along the windows. Fabulous brunch - oysters, shrimp, King Crab legs, salads, omelettes AND an entree. No extra charge for the view. Highly recommend this way to see the city from on high.

"Would recommend- and do tilt too!"

We went up this tower using the citypass admission- great as we got to skip the whole queue (which wasn't very long anyway) and go straight to the lift. The observation deck was pretty roomy and it was easy to get a good view. Plenty of signs around too that helped to identify other buildings. I also bought a tilt ticket for an extra $7 while up there and this was a great experience! They even have a photographer to capture you tilted out of your building. The photo packages weren't too pricey either- one for $20 or two for $30 but a purchase also came with an electronic copy of all of the photos taken of you during your visit. I would definitely recommend doing this.

A must to do once. Don't waste the money to go on the Tilt windows since they don't tilt as much as I thought they would. Thought I'd be able to take photos of the ground but cameras weren't the Willis Tower where you can stand on the glass, look down and take photos.

The price isn't bad but I felt the wait was long for what it is. Guess we could have bought the fast pass but that only became evident after standing in Line for a hour. Also be prepared for a long wait line to go back down when you are done there
