Get there early in the morning to avoid long lines. Thrilling view of Chicago and obviously don’t go up on a cloudy day

Would be simple enough to manage the crowd effectively and proactively. Instead, nobody seems to have a clue on how long it'll be to wait. Sure the view is great and thrilling, but for pete's sake make the process more customer friendly

We waited in line for 2 1/2 hour to buy our tickets! Insane! BUY YOUR TICKETS ON LINE OR GET A GO PASS and the wait will only be a hour or so. It was fun but I don't think the wait was worth it.

I went because there was a ticket for it in my City Pass booklet. I'm really glad I did. Although it was a lot to go through to get to the top, it's worth it for the experience. I can't imagine a better way to...More

Downtown / The Loop
Often visitors' first stop in Chicago, The Loop is a
good starting point to sample the city's energy and
flavor. This central business district boasts
Michelin-rated restaurants, upscale hotels, premier
shopping, and enough arresting architecture to keep
your camera busy for hours. You won’t find too many
photo galleries of downtown Chicago without a shot of
Millennium Park and Cloud Gate (“The Bean”), one of
