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.

I used my international card to buy the tickets but, after the purchase, I received an email that I should call to Reserver Chicago center in order to confirm my identity. It was a trouble.

"Great online prices."
September, 2018
The reason I choose to book the tickets form here is great online price. You get the vouchers on the email and they can be redeemed any time at the counter. Sometimes ticket windows close due to rush but if you have a voucher they provide you tickets instantly and you are good to go. This part was great as I visited on Labor Day weekend.

Tip: This is not a fast pass and only voucher. You have to collect the tickets from counter

"Way too expensive for eeehhhh nothing!"
September, 2018
You pay a hundred dollars to see the city from a building of which there are many more. Nothing is included, no drinks, not the pictures of 25 usd , nor the window that tilts 8 usd. Ridiculous. Save your money and go to a top floor for free somewhere else

"Amazing experience."
August, 2018
I got the ticket right 2 minutes before going upstairs, and i paid it less with reserve chicago without even having to wait in line. The view from up there was amazing, you could see everything at 360 degrees all around you. Moreover, I found everything I needed: bar, bathrooms, shop. I would recommend it to anybody in Chicago. Next time I will try the tilt experience too.

Beautiful view, but way overpriced. It’s not a 360 view either...more like one big window. I had to ask an employee if that was it because I couldn’t believe I had paid money for this. Disappointing.

They have a bar where you can have a drink while enjoying the wonderful city view. And the TILT, is a must! My family chickened out on their first try but the staff allowed them to try it again, and they got crazy (in a good way)! Thank you so much for understanding and giving my kids (9 and 12) the opportunity to not missing such a great experience!

Using the CityPASS we were able to skirt the lines, but even those moved quickly. This is a terrific spot to view the Chicago Skyline and all points on the compass. We didn't do the Tilt, but there were quite a few who braved that exhibit at the top. It's a very nicely managed exhibit.
