It was the best time, the view was amazing. So much history was presented if you are interested, cafe looked delightful. And the people were full of life and nice and polite. What a great time.
If you’re visiting Chicago then a visit to “Big John” is a must. Home to America’s fastest elevator, that gets you to the 94th floor in just 90 seconds, you can see 80 miles (130km) from the 360 Chicago observation turret. This tour features a multimedia exhibition, narrated by David Schwimmer, Friends-fans, that tells you about Chicago’s fascinating history, and what you’re looking at as you wander around. You’ll also be given a free iron-on patch as a reminder of your visit.
Thrill-seekers take note: As of spring 2014, the new TILT experience is available. Payable on-site, this enclosed moveable platform tips you gently over the edge of the building for a totally unique view of Chicago, from 1000ft (305m) high - yowzer! If that doesn’t leave you feeling a bit Tinggly we don’t know what will!
