Skydeck Chicago Admission

Panoramic View of Chicago

Visit Chicago's highest point, the Skydeck on the 103rd floor of the Willis Tower (formerly known as the Sears Tower) with this pre-paid admission ticket. Enjoy panoramic views of the Chicago skyline, world-famous for its distinctive architecture. 

Explore several exhibits designed for learners of all ages, like interactive digital floor displays, touch-screen activities and scavenger hunts that not only highlight Chicago's iconic landmark, but also celebrate the Windy City's sports, architecture, pop culture, history, food, music and people. Challenge yourself with a Chicago trivia game, compare the heights of the tallest structures in the world, and see just how many of your bodies it would take to reach the height of Willis Tower.

Walk out onto the Ledge, a glass box-like balcony that extends 4.3 feet (1.3 meters) from the building, and experience an unconventional view of the city: the view from above. Admire the lofty views of top Chicago attractions, like Wrigley Field, the Navy Pier and Millennium Park, all from a breathtaking height of 1,353 feet (412.4 meters). On a clear day, you can see up to 50 miles (80.5 km) out. It’s also the perfect vantage point for great sunset and twinkling night city views.

So easy to go through the very short lines. Once up top it was just not very clear that there were 3 lines to step onto the glass landing. Some people were getting a little aggravated. Lots of helpful staff.

The word amazing doesn't cover it. If you're a visitor or a resident, this is something everyone has to experience. Well worth the wait. This reinforces the fact that Chicago is a fabulous city. The people there are very helpful and so polite, which added to the experience.

Worth the money and the time. Recommend that there be someone at each view point to control visitors. To many people cutting in front of people patiently waiting to enter, they were rude to say the least and some actually arrogant and if not ignorant.
