The place was clean and worth it. I took the Vip pass which was 27 dollars more than the original ticket of 22 dollars. Anyways the line was full we waited like an 1 hour just to check on the deck and it took us 25 mins to go down.

was tallest, now? third in USA? Still nice view and the ledge is good, but hopefully everyone can be civilized in the selfie photos parade. The professional photo is expensive $30 but they can catch a great jump photo on the ledge.

Visited here at about 6pm for a quick cocktail before eating elsewhere. We had to queue for about ten minutes for a table but it was well worth the wait.

The observation deck is amazing but could be scary to those afraid of heights! You will get an amazing view of the city and a chance for some fun photo opts during your visit. I would go again!

Didn't think I would ever do this but finally decided to give it a try. So glad I did! Not as scary as I thought. You can stand back from the window area and get a fantastic view of the skyline if unsure of the glass viewing decks. Long line, make reservations!

This is one of the two great sky decks in Chicago. At Willis tower the main attraction is the floor window. I've been in some around the country and this is the only one as far as I know that has a completely one pice glass floor. It makes the experiences more enjoyable. The hard thing is to find a...

For $22 it is worth seeing a 360 degree view of the city of Chicago from the 103rd floor. Step out on the sky deck for a unique and great photo opportunity. I would recommend avoiding weekends as that is the most popular time. Close parking garage as well.

I would definitely say that this is a 'must do' in Chicago. The whole experience is well worth while and the view from the top is amazing. The glass box is worth stepping into for sure! Highly recommended.

We went on a snowy day so little to no visibility. Our visit was not worth the hefty fee. Still was a neat experience.
