    What to Expect
    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 — 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.

    The view is awesome but when you go out onto the Skydeck you are allowed only 1 minute to take pictures. A bit of a cattle drive to get to as well (lots of waiting in lines). Overall a good experience. Allow approx 1 to...More

    Went middle of the afternoon, queues but nothing too crazy. Fantastic views of the city. The ledge experience is a must. I am no fan of heights but it's a great experience.

    Pre-purchased ticket from hotel concierge and pleased not to have spend $75 on the fast track as we walked straight in to security and onto the lifts. Recommend arrive in first hour of opening. Had maybe three minutes of waiting for the ledge.

    The view is great, but would have been better on a clearer day.Also, we had to walk what amounted to be 3 1/2 city blocks due to no signage and construction. Worst of all was inconsiderate people who blocked the view and took too much...More

    I went on-line. It is not a fast-pass per se. You can purchase for a specific day and time frame. The price is $75. I believe normal cost is $25. This also gives you no waiting for the deck that over hangs the building(glass... More

    No difference. I believe there is a fast pass option that allows you to skip the lines ( which can be 1-2 hours ) . It would be worth the money. Also, check out the Chicago Citipass - good value. Cheers

    No, it was just fixed before I arrived and actually it was the protective coating that crackled, no one was ever in danger
