There was a 2 HR wait bt the line moved quickly! I liked the fact I could order tickets ahead of time online which saved us wait time and also saved us money! Beautiful view! Wish I took more picks on the ledge!
Tip: Buy tickets ahead of time online! Also try to go as early as possible!

I made a trip to Chicago 6 years ago with my son and absolutely fell in love with Chicago! Just got back from taking my daughter! Now we all want to move from Texas! The Sky Deck is our favorite site! Love the history! Love the view!
Tip: If the wait seems long don't worry! The history lesson in line is worth the wait!

"Majestic views"
June, 2016
There are really no words one can use to describe just how amazing a 360 view of Chicago we get from the sky deck. I'm sure Picasso would interpret it into a masterpiece. I had a wonderful time.
Tip: Get there so that you watch the sun set. Make sure to book tickets through reserve Chicago to skip lines.

"Great Experience"
June, 2016
Going on the skydeck provides you with the best view that you can ever get of Chicago (Unless you are on an airplane). Well worth the price. The view is breathtaking, especially if you step out into the glass space where you are literally standing in mid-air.
Tip: Your ears will pop on the way up to the skydeck. Bring gum or be prepared to yawn to clear your ears.

"It's a super fantabulous experience"
June, 2016
It was my first visit and people recommended me to visit the sky deck for once for the experience. I loved the whole view and the glass space in order to walk and feel on top of the world . It was a different experience altogether I was soo scared to walk on the glass. Clicked a picture and framed it on my wall. It's a completely mesmerizing jeopardy . Loved it !
Tip: It's one of the things in the to do list when you visit Chicago !

"On the top of Chicago"
June, 2016
During the summer time, its always really pack on the deck. the Deck has a 360 view of the town. The tower is located of the west side away from downtown, which gives u ability to see the other skyscraper. A great Michigan lake view, midway airport and you can see the Willamette baha'i
Tip: check the weather, you won't be able to see anything if its fogged up.

I have been to the Empire State Building so I wanted to see how much higher the Sears tower was. I enjoyed it. Went after 5pm so it wasn't as busy. The lines were for the ledge but still worth the wait.

If you are going, it pays to have a citipass. It saved us a lot of time in line. Go straight to the edge get that out of the way first.

If you are visiting multiple sites in Chicago for 9 days or less, look into the City Pass. You won't regret it. We got the city pass and Willis Tower was our first stop. Believe me when I say I thought I stole something. We walked through the entrance for City Pass holders and walked past hundreds and HUNDREDS of people who had been in line for 2+ hours. From the time we walked in the door and wound our way around and then got our pass booklets issued (because it was our first stop for our passes) and then took the elevator to the top.....15 minutes!!!! If we would have already had our pass booklets it would have been even less. It was incredible!!!!! Then the ride to the top...,amazing that you can ascend to the top in a minute!! The views are stunning. And wait in line to get in the skydeck box. It is so cool! And does not cost any extra. A little scary but my kids and I loved it! And the pictures, WOW!! It is a must see!

More $ than I really wanted to spend, great history I was not aware of. But the view!!!! WOW, THE VIEW!!!!! It's wonderful. It was busy, but we were able to go around to all the sides and did not wait in line too long to stand on the glass floor. ( Which was so cool) I think a good idea if it's a nice clear day!

Of course Skywalk was our #1 spot while visiting Chicago. Except for the huge lines and time you have to spend waiting it is unforgettable experience. Awesome views of the city, marina and lake. The glass bottom cabins are terrifying but awesome! it is really weird feeling to step on it but you just have to do it! Would definitely go again! We had a great time.
