    Great experience.
    An awesome place to be at. Take the elevator up to the 94th floor and you will be greeted to great views of Downtown Chicago and the surrounding neighbourhoods. Go especially at night, the view is much prettier then. My only complaint would be that it can get a bit boring here while you wait to go up to the top. I didn't think too much about this until I also went up the Sears Tower a few days later. The Sears Tower has gone under a complete makeover where there are many photo op stations and interactive exhibits featuring the history of Chicago. If the John Hancock Center did this as well, then my review would be 5 stars. Otherwise this place is well worth the admission price to go up to the 94th floor, even though it is a bit pricey. You won't regret it.
    Thank you for your review of 360 Chicago. We're sorry to hear that you didn't enjoy your experience with our observation deck. Alongside the view, guests have access to our introductory exhibit which highlights Chicago's eccentric neighborhoods. We appreciate hearing your feedback and hope that you can give us another try in the future.

    Amazing views
    Really enjoyed this viewing platform. Was spacious and views were phenomenal as it was a clear, sunny evening. Recommend going up 30 mims before sunset to get the view before, during and after. Tilt is ok, a bit of fun and worth doing if there.
    Thank you for the nice review of 360 CHICAGO, and good advice about coming up at sunset! We hope you can join us again soon.

    Amazing views! We pre booked tickets as was advised it would skip the line but to be honest there was no queue to book tickets anyway. Enjoyed reading the facts on the wall as you queued for the elevators. The views are amazing! The tilt experience was ok but doesn’t last for long and in my opinion was not worthy extra money. We had a drink included too. I chose the wine and was given a large measure, do not expect the cocktails or wines to be in fancy cups. They are in a plastic cup, this did not bother us though. It was lovely to sit have a drink and soak in the lovely views of the city.

    Great views over Chicago
    The weather was not great on the day of our visit so visibility was not so good. However, we were still able to see most of Chicago. When you get to the Skydeck you have only 90 seconds to spend on the glass. This includes the time it takes for the official photo. This is very short and doesn't allow for you to take your own photo's with different views.
    Thanks for taking the time to write a review! However, it seems you may be confusing us with the Skydeck. Next time you're in town, visit us at the 360 Observation Deck, an observatory with unlimited time to enjoy our views!

    Amazing views!
    The most amazing views! The tilt experience was great and I thought, reasonably priced! Staff were nice and queues moved fast. Only thing that stopped it being a 5 was the cost of the photos. You expect to pay a bit more at these things but I felt $30 for one print was excessive. Would definitely recommend when in Chicago!
    Thanks a lot for the review of 360 CHICAGO. We really appreciate the positive feedback. Hope you can make a return visit in the near future!

The view is spectacular. I chose 360 over Willis Tower for the Tilt, which was closed for repairs when we arrived. Had I known the Tilt was closed, I would’ve gone to the Willis Tower for the glass box experience instead. Such a bummer.

Easy entrance, nice staff and most important: stunning views over Chicago and Lake Michigan. You can walk around and have a view from all sides. There is a restaurant for a coffee or a beer. Enough space to walk around, even when there are a larger number of people

The views were great. We went just before sunset so got a view with the sun, the sunset, and the evening lights. However, the tilt isn’t worth the cost. It was maybe 15-20 seconds in duration and you aren’t allowed to take your own photos.

Overall, while the view was great it was incredibly overpriced for the tilt add on.

Purchased Sip and View as the website portrayed an intimate and relaxed experience.
Unfortunately it’s the opposite, very busy and impersonal. Overcrowded and a lack of tables to provide the experience that’s been sold and portrayed
The souvenir “glass” is actually a plastic beaker.
Not worth paying for sip and view, just pay for general entry.

I only recommend this place if you have plenty of money to spend. Nice view however your are paying almost $50 for it and you can take a look of the view in less than 5 minutes. Now if you want to enjoy it a little more be ready to spend another $30 more.

View was cool but nothing special. Tilt wad boring. You hold.on to a railing, so there isn't any adrenaline rush. Better ways to spend your time.

Wonderful views, friendly staff. We went on Saturday at 11:30 and no long lines. Lots of open spaces was lovely. We decided to try the tilt and it was fun experience. Glad that we read the reviews decided to park on site. Glad we left SUV at home need sedan or smaller SUVs in the city.
