The views from the 103rd floor are spectacular and from the ledges truly amazing, you get a little hesitant feeling as you step out. The only drawback was the way the queues were managed on the skydeck waiting to step on to the ladge, although...More

Sky deck. Of course you expected a view. But it is not astonishing. It’s only inside view. E.g in NYC you can step out at the Rockefeller. Then they have the glass boxes where you step out and stand in the air. The queuing is...More

In town with the family and this is super cool! Great views of the city and the feeling of standing that high above the street is indescribable. Cool for kids and adults and a great photo opportunity while in Chicago.

The only cool thing that Willis Tower has is the Skydeck. The Hancock building has a better view if you ask me, and its cheaper than Willis Tower. But Willis Tower has the skydeck. Which may be super tourisy but the pictures always look awesome!...More

This is a tummy tickling experience! It can be scary if you are afraid of heights but the views are worth it. Prepare for a long wait. Plan to take lots of pics.

Great views and although expensive was worth the money. Only problem was queuing to get on the overhanging glass.

We did not visit the building as I am not a heights kind of guy. But, we really enjoyed the walk around the area by jumping off of the tour.

Your stay at the top can easily be done in 2 hours, but your total time will depend on the wait in line. Go late and lines are much shorter. And avoid spring break!
