Overview:

Skip the long admission lines and treat yourself to an exhilarating view over the whole of Chicago from the top of the Willis Tower. Ride 103 floors to the Skydeck and step out onto The Ledge, a glass-paneled box with vertical views to the ground below.

Description:

Enjoy an unrivaled view over the city of Chicago on a trip up the city's Willis Tower. This famous building, once known as the Sears Tower, is not only home to a Skydeck on the 103rd floor, but it also features The Ledge, a series of 4 glass-paneled boxes that extend out from the building's facade to give visitors a view straight down.

As you wind through the ground levels of the Willis Tower, you will be surrounded by museum-quality exhibits highlighting the iconic tower. Learn about Chicago's rich history and culture through these informative visuals.

Watch a video presentation, "Reaching for the Sky," where you will be briefed on the history of the building and of architecture in Chicago. Then step into your elevator and you will be amazed at how quickly it ascends. As you travel, your multimedia-equipped elevator will inform you about your vertical progress.

Upon reaching the 103rd floor, step out onto the Skydeck, which offers views spanning over 50 miles and across 4 states. Then summon your courage to step out onto The Ledge, a glass balcony that hangs over the edge, for vertigo-inducing views 1,353 feet (about 412 meters) straight down to the city below!

What's Included:

• Museum-quality exhibits
• Theater presentation
• Access to The Ledge
• Skip-the-line and express entry to security if you choose the Fast Pass option

    “Amazing views”

    Reviewed by a GetYourGuide Customer – Elgin, United Kingdom ( aged 60 - 69 , traveling as a couple ) June 22, 2015 This is the way to cut out one stage of queuing. You still have to queue for admission to the compulsory 9 min movie before accessing the elevator to the Skydeck. However it is all worthwhile when you see the wonderful views of the city and lake - and experience the sky boxes. A 'not to be missed' attraction.

    “Great view, long wait.”

    Reviewed by Erik – tallahassee, United States ( aged 30 - 39 , traveling as a couple ) May 31, 2015 We were able to cut about half the line but still had to wait a little over an hour to go to the sky deck. Amazing view on a clear day, and the ledge is a neat experience although it is crowded And requires another 15 minute or so wait.
