Really awesome view of the city and Shoreline. Little pricey but I was ok with it because it was beautiful. And getting tilted was also fun. Just wished it went 50%. So 25.00 for deck and drink, and 7.00 for the tilt.

"Ok but Long Lines"

We decided to buy tickets for the Cocktail and Observation Deck on Sunday early evening of Memorial Day Weekend. Although several staff members indicated the line would not take too long (every once in a while we were assured only another 20 minutes or so), the wait totaled about two hours with City and Fast pass holders getting priority. The views were fine at sunset although the cocktail or beer was average. Good place to see panoramic views but be prepared for a long wait.

As other observation decks there are views of the city skyscraper and the Michigan Lake. "The Tilt " attraction is not as awesome as you expect and not included in the price.
