Price is Ridiculous
Oct 2021 • Friends
The price is ridiculous. $37 to go to the top which includes one drink. There is no food available except maybe some chips etc. We purchased tickets for the next day at 8pm. We arrive at 8:05 and they wouldn’t let us go up. What the heck. It closes at 9pm but why should they care if we weren’t able only stay 45 or 50 minutes. Anyway, we complained and the graciously refunded our money but we would have liked to go up.

Best of view of Chicago--rain or shine!
Sep 2021
There's really no beating this view. We went up to the 360 observation deck on a rainy day and the view was still incredible! Loved the snack and drink options and the little museum you kind of walk through on the way through the exhibit on your way to the elevator. Great attraction for kids and pretty centrally located.

A Gem at Sunset and Dusk
Mar 2021
The glistening lights were amazing as the sky turned to night. My teenage kids loved this site complete with a nice bar and the TILT activity. The one kid loved the TILT when she took the chance. We were up there for at least an hour. We just couldn’t stop looking at the view. The location is so much better than the other option and is right on the lake. This is a winner.

Over priced
Oct 2021 • Family
I wanted to try TILT, $8 pp, and I was surprised to see how expensive to go up there. It costs $30 for just a visit. We purchased $45 pp including a drink and a TILT. It was not as exciting as I had expected. But, my young adult daughter said she was scared.
If you have never been there, they can provide a great view.
They took very good pictures, but $25 was a little too much.

Unbelievable views of one of the best looking cities in the world!

We have done this three or four times and it never ceases to amaze us what wonderful views can be had on a clear day.

Skip TILT!
Long lines to get in, get on TILT,get out and to get a drink. The actual ‘ride’ was about 1 minute or less. The views are amazing and i would just go to see the views, but don’t do TILT! We paid extra and the lines for long we couldn’t use our ‘free’ drink tickets. It was just a lit of waiting in lines woth no staff to help, except when they try to sell you the tourist photos.

So disappointing - avoid
Oct 2021 • Family
Despite timed tickets, we experienced long wait time before even entering the ground floor elevator. Drunk party in front of us refused to wear their masks and staff shrugged their shoulders. Once at top, views were obscured by trashy Halloween displays and artwork on the glass (why would they cover the windows and views?!). There appeared to be only one elevator working to return to ground floor, creating another 45 min or so line to leave (see photo - portion of line of people waiting to LEAVE!). Compared to my visit 15 years ago, this place has really gone downhill - loud bar patrons, messy displays, inoperable educational kiosks, dirty carpet, rude employees. Willis Tower is a much better, family friendly experience that offers greater educational elements and more complete views.

Beautiful views up top!
Sep 2021 • Couples
No wait for us. Didn’t seem to matter what time you bought your tickets for, they just scan and take you up. We got right up the elevator, walked around and took pics. Small wait for tilt (15 minutes). Bought our pictures , about 44 with tax for 8 photos. Maybe other days are different but our experience was a lot different than the negative reviews. Great view up top.

HOLY SMOKES - INCREDIBLE!
Aug 2021
I'm a Chicago local who had an opportunity to visit 360 Chicago last week and WOW - I was blown away. I've lived in Lakeview for 23 years and have never seen the city from this perspective - it was like taking in the whole city in one swoop. Amazing. Really tugged at my Chicago pride strings. I also did the Tilt attraction - ahhh! I have no idea what crazy mind thought of that but it's surreal to be leaning out of a skyscraper! I went during the afternoon so next time I go up it will be to have a drink in the bar and enjoy the city at night or during the holidays to check out the lights. Really worth adding to any Chicago trip or, if you are local, making it part of a date night or fun adventure in the city.

Disappointed
Sep 2021 • Couples
I was really looking forward to seeing the sunset from the observation deck but, the top of the tower was completely cloud covered and we couldn’t see anything at all. We were so disappointed. We were not offered a refund or a ticket for the next day. I will not go back.
