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.

"Buy a drink at the bar instead"

After spending money on a ticket and extra for a fast pass when there was not even a line, we learned you can go up in the tower to a bar/restaurant (different floor) and have a drink with no entrance fee.

Always a place we take people who have never been to Chicago. My advice would be to go first thing in the morning before they get busy...as long as the sky is clear for the view!

"To Tilt or Not to Tilt"

If you're going up to the 360 Observation Deck there's a question to ask yourself: what is the purpose of going? Do you want to see the views, check out the Tilt experience, or buy souvenirs? If you only want views you can find those in the Signature lounge (although not the best experience if you have children) and be sure to go in the bathrooms for additional views. If you like a little adrenaline rush then check out the Tilt attraction. It's an easy way to get your adrenaline pumping and scream your lungs out without the too real possibility of getting hurt :) It takes less than 10 minutes, and note: you can't bring a camera in the area that tilts. If you want souvenirs then for sure you want the Observation Deck. All in all it's a fun way to kill some time, get some great pics, and spend a wad of cash! (This would be rated "GOOD" but there's nothing in between average and very good.) If it's not busy you don't need much more than an hour, but if it is busy plan on up to two hours to ensure you are able to spend the time getting to the views you want to see.

"Better than Willis (Sears) tower"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5

360 Chicago in the John Hancock bldg is much better than the Willis Tower. Lines are not as long, actually no lines when we visited June 2016 and end of April. Views are amazing. You can see up and down the lake and over to the west side. Great view looking down on the old water tower and of Navy Pier.

We Took the Package that included a Drink (yes it was just 10am, but it was our day off 😜) So we enjoyed the view, took many pictures and of course our Drink. The entrance packages have Different Processing, but Not too expensive.
