    What to Expect
    Visit Chicago's highest point, the Skydeck on the 103rd floor of the Willis Tower (formerly known as the Sears Tower) with this pre-paid admission ticket. Enjoy panoramic views of the Chicago skyline, world-famous for its distinctive architecture.

    Explore several exhibits designed for learners of all ages, like interactive digital floor displays, touch-screen activities and scavenger hunts that not only highlight Chicago's iconic landmark, but also celebrate the Windy City's sports, architecture, pop culture, history, food, music and people. Challenge yourself with a Chicago trivia game, compare the heights of the tallest structures in the world, and see just how many of your bodies it would take to reach the height of Willis Tower.

    Walk out onto the Ledge, a glass box-like balcony that extends 4.3 feet (1.3 meters) from the building, and experience an unconventional view of the city — from above. Admire the lofty views of top Chicago attractions, like Wrigley Field, the Navy Pier and Millennium Park, all from a breathtaking height of 1,353 feet (412.4 meters). On a clear day, you can see up to 50 miles (80.5 km) out. It’s also the perfect vantage point for great sunset and twinkling night city views.

    It was beautiful and a wonderful experience for first timers to Chicago. My boyfriend had never been to Chicago and never seen a view like that. I advise the wait in line for the edge. It's a little long but worth it.

    Employees told us it would take 2.5 hours to get to the top. It only took about an hour which was nice. However, since there are no timed tickets the upstairs observation deck and the Ledge were packed! I had to squeeze past people to...More

    Be sure to buy the fast pass to avoid standing in long lines. We would have been able to see a couple of other things had we done that. Views of Chicago are outstanding though from the 103rd floor. The skydeck was pretty amazing.More

    I went on-line. It is not a fast-pass per se. You can purchase for a specific day and time frame. The price is $75. I believe normal cost is $25. This also gives you no waiting for the deck that over hangs the building(glass... More
