Anyone looking to get an incredible view of the unique lakefront landscape and scenic architecture of Chicago will enjoy this sky-high excursion.

Make your own way to the 360 Chicago entrance, located along Michigan Avenue. You can choose to visit any time during the site’s hours of operation. Once inside the building, step into a high-speed elevator that will whisk you more than 90 stories above the ground at a speed of 20.5 mph (33 kph). As the doors open, make your way to the floor-to-ceiling windows as you enjoy incredible aerial views of the Windy City in all four cardinal directions.

Depending on the time of day you visit and the season, you’ll see all manner of interesting highlights. Morning and afternoon tend to give Lake Michigan a richer blue tint, while sunset offers the perfect opportunity for a romantic moment. After dark, the city sparkles down below.

In addition to great views, 360 Chicago offers a number of onsite amenities. Play around with the interactive touch screens, allowing you to zoom in and out of various landmarks visible from above. You can even test your knowledge with a series of digital games that explore the city. The guide features five different languages, and a version just for kids.

Those who have worked up an appetite from the high altitude can stop by BAR 94, for a delicious array of gelato, Italian coffee, cocktails, and light bites.

  • The Sun and Stars option is good for two visits (valid for 48 hours) to the observatory, providing the opportunity to enjoy Chicago views by both day and night.
  • The TILT option offers access to this brand new attraction of outward tilting glass 1,000 feet above the Magnificent Mile. This is the first of its kind in the world and offers unique, downward facing views.

We had a day and evening visit here. Both were fabulous. the views were amazing. It was busy but not so much so that you couldn't see everything as you went round. While we were there it was sunny but it had snowed and this enhanced the views.All of the staff that we had contact with were helpful and really friendly.
When we did the evening visit it was misty and it made it so eerie watching the mist roll around the tower. We had a relaxing drink up there and just enjoyed this amazing tower. I hope to return here again one day and will use viator for booking the visit again.

Good fun - a bit scary!

Great tour. Easy to get to the top. The elevator was super fast but not fast enough where you could feel it. Did the Tilt, which is a must if you are going up to the 360 observation room. FYI, we learned that you could go to the bar up in the 360 observation room without buying a ticket.

Was cool but we purchased along with the Tilt and was informed that it wouldn't be open until later that night. Disappointed as we had other things planned out for that day. No offer for refund either from the observation crew.

No one should go to Chicago with out going to the John Hancock Observation Deck! The city is fabulous to look at and this is the spot.
