Traveler Tips


  • "All though 60 seconds isn't enough time if you are in big group, its just right for a couple to do." See review
  • "Stepping out on the deck is not for the faint of heart, if you are afraid of heights you may hyperventilate." See review
  • "Long queues in general line, poor assistance from staff— recommend Fast Track especially if you have mobility issues or back problems" See review

So that’s what 1300+ feet up looks like to a bird.

Last time we were in Chicago we didn’t get to the Skydeck. We made arrangements via Viator and were rewarded with fantastic night views.

Exhilarating! If you’re looking for a bit of a “controlled” rush, this is it. I can’t think of a better view of The City of Chicago!

Amazing views of the city! We went at sunset and it was a great experience. Just make sure you realize it takes about 30 min to get to the viewing decks from the time you arrive. Just takes time to move people safely with COVID precautions and up the elevators.

It had great views on a lovely day however you got 20 seconds on platform allowed after queuing for over two hours in the early morning. Then long queue to get back down again. Consider Fast track, skip the ticket office ticket made no difference

despite the long lines, it was a great experience. The employees even took the time to make sure you got great photos using my own camera. All though 60 seconds isn't enough time if you are in big group, its just right for a couple to do. i had a blast and would for sure do it again.
