Atrocious waste of valuable visiting time. 40 mins in the security cue, and another 60 mins for the elevator. Dark, depressing, totally uninspired waiting halls. Ventilation not sufficient so we all perspired. If only there was a sign that warned one of the time commitment...More

We spent a lot of money having to go through this attraction faster because the attraction seemed unable to cope with the tourist numbers! Such a shame that they can’t sort the queues out more efficiently!

Amazing, tummy flipping experience. Absolutely, jaw dropping however as you are only given 60 to 90 seconds on the ledge it is hard to get your photos and also remember to look at what you are doing. Having said that, my tummy flipped as I...More

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.

Well worth going up just to see Chicago in another perspective but be prepared to wait forever to get up the tower or pay a small fortune for the fast pass. Personally the shard in London was more impressive.

The Skydeck is probably one of the best places in the cty to catch some awesome views. The only negative thing i have to say is that most of the time is full of people which makes the waiting really really long but once you...More

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

Downtown / The Loop
Often visitors' first stop in Chicago, The Loop is a
good starting point to sample the city's energy and
flavor. This central business district boasts
Michelin-rated restaurants, upscale hotels, premier
shopping, and enough arresting architecture to keep
your camera busy for hours. You won’t find too many
photo galleries of downtown Chicago without a shot of
Millennium Park and Cloud Gate (“The Bean”), one of

Yes, book in advance. We went last week in the middle of the week and waited in line to buy tickets for 45 minutes. That could have been completely avoided had we bought tickets online before we went.

We went on a Wednesday around 4pm and there was not a wait. I think a lot of people try to go around an hour before sunset and then you are up there to see the sun set.
