  • I went there with my family, the view from the top was great as you can see Chicago and lake Michigan. Regarding the 360 Observation Deck it was really nice even if I was expecting it more impressive.  more »

  • We were there as a big family of 6. It was a weekend and we loved it. Weather was great too so we can have better view. Tilt was fun even my 4 yrs old done it. If you go there In The weekend you should go as soon as open 11:00am because later get very busy and you may wait over 1 for tilt.
  • You get amazing views of Chicago from this observation deck on the 94th floor (out of 100) in the John Hancock building. The Tilt experience is fun (if a bit scary since you are looking down 1,000 feet). I was there for a private event and it is a great venue. The sunset was magnificent.
  • I went up there for a first time and the whole experience was excellent. It's really a place to spend a good time with family while looking over a terrific Chicago city skyline and suburbs. They have a stairs on south side to sit and enjoy the view and as well as a lounge to enjoy snacks and drinks.
  • Beautiful view of the city from the observation deck. Chicago has a magnificent skyline and architecture and this place gives a great view of it in all directions. For an additional charge, the Tilt offers exciting experience to have a tilt down view of the city downtown. It's a slow tilt but still not for everyone! Go early to avoid wait time. Staff is courteous. Super fast elevators. They offer photo options with the sky view for additional price. It's a slow tilt but still not for everyone! This is a must visit place when in Chicago!
  • Awesome views. Before visiting, did a lot of surveying about whether to visit skydeck or 360 degree Chicago and majority of the reviews recommended 360 degree Chicago. Views of the lake are nice coupled with downtown skyline. There is a tilt ride for additional $7. Moreover, it is recommended to plan a visit in such a way that daylight, sunset, and night time views are seen. Nice place to visit with family.
