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.

"Amazing views"

360 was 1 attraction I opted to visit using my Smart Destinations Go Chicago card. Views from the observation deck are amazing, and as the name states, they really are 360° views of the city. Despite using my pass on a Saturday afternoon around dusk, it wasn't as busy as I had expected, and queues for the observation deck were quite short. Was in and up to the observation deck within 10 minutes, and I spent a good hour up there checking out Chicago from all points on the observation deck. Worth a visit if you're in Chicago and have limited time.

Our hotel happened to be right next door so we planned to do the Sears/Willis tower during the day & this one at night. We bought a CityPass & both were included on the card. This one was by far my favorite! I am so glad we went up even though we were exhausted. There was plenty of seating to just sit & relax. They even had a small bar. The nighttime views of the city were spectacular. There was no line at all when we arrived & only about 15 people at the time when we got up there. The worst part for me in both towers was the fast elevators but they were over pretty quickly. I was so happy its open until 10:30 (last elevator up)-11:00pm so we could see more things during the day that closed at 5pm.

Hubby loved the Tilt experience. So many nice benches out there to sit and enjoy the view. Go early or may be in weekdays to beat the crowd, i cannot imagine the crowd on holidays.

Such a great experience to see these views! I was apprehensive about the elevator ride -- but it was so fast I barely knew I was on an elevator. I think it was about 40 seconds for 90+ floors! A must-visit venue in Chicago. Several kids in our high school choir group did TILT and enjoyed it, but I don't think it is all that exceptional, except to say you have done it. The beautiful views are awesome all the way around the observation deck.
