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

    Reviewed by Sarah from Chicago, United States on February 15, 2015 Happy we purchased this tickets in advance; you can skip the ticket line then which is very helpful.


  • Rating: 5 “Spot on !!”

    Reviewed by ABIODUN from Greenbelt, United States on December 31, 2014 Exactly what it's supposed to be. No fuss .


  • Rating: 4 “An iconic adventure in Chicago.”

    Reviewed by David from Mobile, United States on December 23, 2014 The Willis Tower is a probable must-see, must-do activity while visiting Chicago.

    Although the day we visited was cloudy, the view in all four directions was quite impressive.

    We enjoyed the ride to the top, as well. All-in-all, it was a fun and thrilling activity, especially "The Ledge."


  • Rating: 3 “Badly organised”

    Reviewed by ALAN from STEVENAGE, United Kingdom on August 7, 2014 When you get to the Willis Tower there is only 1 queue, I prebooked my tickets to save time. Once inside you are able to queue jump but having only 1 queue outside added about 15 minutes to the experience. Once on the Sky Deck you need people to monitor how long people were spending on the ledge as some had no though about those waiting and were taking loads and loads of photos and spending up to 10 minutes.


  • Rating: 4 “I saved time”

    Reviewed by Alberto from Modena, Italy on July 9, 2014 I could follow the fastpass owner path, but before queuing for the elevator (on the fastpass queue), I had to exchange the voucher for a real ticket at the ticket desk.
    It was somewhat embarassing because there was no queue or special window for this purpose, so I had to take a window near my side before people in the regular queue could take it.
