The weather was not great at the time of our visit but we still enjoyed our visit which included a walk through gallery and views from the skydeck as well as some shopping for souvenirs at the shop prior to the exit Maybe worthwhile to see the weather predictions before planning a visit

"Willis Tower" is the new name of the old "Sears Tower". I have visited many tall raised buildings, however, this was my first with the Willis tower. Entry fee is reasonable, High-speed Elevators, Sky-deck Shop are a few attractions in the sky. However, the main attraction is the "Glass Deck" that is projected outwards of the building, where you can... More

My son and I went up about 4 years ago. The ride up was ok but when I got up there and the building swayed a little I was ready to come back down. Never again!

I was lucky with no too long cue to wait. Informativne movie was very good. Before get ti g to projection room there was a lot of staff to assiste but afterwards you get kind of lost with nobody to direct you further . Photo offer by far expensive. Maybe you should limit time and charge more for photo sessions... More

You basically see the same thing from both towers. Obviously Willis tower is taller but the view is the same.

We had not visited the Skydeck before and it was on our Chicago bucket list. We opted to go at night and it was a great decision. Had we not had the City Passes, our experience rating would be completely different - we did not have to wait in the 2-3 hour general admission line. It is not spectacular enough... More

It is a cool sensation standing in the sky deck. The lines when I went were so terrible though, that it was not worth the 2 hour wait to take the rushed photo in the sky deck.

A stunning skyline coupled with cultural attractions like the Art Institute of Chicago present a Downtown where work and play peacefully coexist.
