We went to the Sky Deck because I love the views from up high. I got the fast pass and I'm glad I did, because the lines for regular access seemed to be a few hours long. Once we got up there, it became apparent...More

Exhilarating!, just step out and enjoy views of nearly 50 miles on a clear day. We got there at a near perfect time. Walked in the door and was on the 104th floor within 15 minutes. Lines were short and moved at a decent pace,...More

really cool place to take the family and find out who has the nerves to walk out on the clear glass balcony like hang over. You can have your family picture taken. You can buzz through this in 60/90 minutes. Amazing view of city.

I was at this tower in 2002 and it was called: Sears Tower. It didn't have the Sky Ledge at that time. It had plenty of informational exhibits about Chicago on the 103rd floor. Overall, it was a little bit of an exhilarating view of...More

It's a great view of Chicago. The attendant at the sky deck was nice and took our picture with out camera so we wouldn't have to pay the $30 for the one they take. It was worth the admission price.

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

Ask the front desk before you pass security. I had a coat check option on the 82nd floor, but it will be where you end up, most likely not at the bottom/entrance.

We didn't buy the fast pass. We went early (9:30-10:00) on a weekday and we're at the top in under 30 min. That includes buying the tickets and going through security.
