    Great views but not a ride
    Great views. Enjoyed our visit. But the tilt should not be billed as a thrill ride. You stand in the window and hold on. It tilts our for a few seconds. Fun experience but not a ride let alone a thrill ride.
    Thank you for your review of 360 Chicago. We appreciate hearing your feedback as it helps us improve the 360 Chicago experience. We hope that you can visit us again in the future.

    As long as you don’t mind waiting, it was definitely worth it! The souvenir shop was awesome and seeing the whole city was amazing! Riding up the 94 floors was so quick, however, you barely feel like you are moving! Our hotel elevator felt faster than this one, how amazing! Our ears did pop a lot though! Overall worth it and would totally recommend!
    Thank you for your kind review of 360 Chicago! We're glad to hear that you had a good time and hope that you can visit us again in the future.

    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
    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!

Amazing way to see the whole of the city. Incredible views! On the advice of the staff we opted to go up later than planned and we were glad we did. We got the whole experience and saw the Lakeshore, the gold Coast as well as all the well- known and iconic architectural sights!

The view from the top is amazing. You must know that in order for you to participate in the tilt, there is another $10 fee p/p. And if it is busy, you might have to wait additional time.

I visited this on a nice sunny day and saw some stunning views of the city and lake.
The views from all angles were stunning with the ability to sit and relax also.

The facts about Chicago within the waiting area were great to read and I really enjoyed this experience.

Quick and easy to book online and easy to access.

Definitely worth the visit.

The views were stunning, we were lucky to be there on a clear sunny afternoon. The ride up is quite interesting with a number of facts about the building. Great to do for a first trip and those who like urban sights.

What a view over the city and lake. Even though i hate heights, it was such an experience. The temperatures outside was freezing due to visiting in january, the area was inside and so cosy. Staff excellent, couldn't do enough to welcome us. I recommended visiting.

Prebooked the sip, tilt and view tickets for 6pm. 7pm comes along and we’re still queuing as it’s packed with people and the place is so hot. Felt dizzy queuing because they don’t allow drinks about 5 mins past the front door and it was so hot with nowhere to sit. We got to do the tilt at 7:30pm, went to view our photos but saw the price of them from the people in front of us and were so shocked. The bar was so so busy we had to just leave in the end without getting anything our tickets promised apart from the tilt. Feel like I’ve wasted so much money as it’s not cheap either. They should stop letting so many people book at once especially since they have allocated time slots. Missed out on everything our ticket promised apart from the tilt due to this.

Complete waste of money, 3 attempts where we had to reschedule due to zero visibility (absolutely understand that isn’t their fault!) however no refund if you’re unable to do it due to weather - $200 completely wasted, and they don’t care at all..
Do not prebook, better to wait and see if there is any visibility otherwise they’ll happily take your money for absolutely nothing.
Dreadful experience
