- One of the tallest buildings in the United States
- Amazing panoramic views of Chicago and Lake Michigan
- On a clear day you you can even see four states from the observatory
My wife and I did this and the Willis and thought this one was better, less obstructed, and the atmosphere was better because of the cafe at the top, making it nice to relax after the short tour narrated by Ross from Friends and soak up the views. The queue was shorter too but I don't know if this is always the case. Might've just been the days we went.
if your favorite traveler is heading to the biggest city in the Midwest anytime soon, get them the perfect gift of a Tinggly voucher and suggest they head over to 360 Chicago! I would recommend waiting until the sky is sunny, though!
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.
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!
