    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.

    Fantastic views even managed to do ‘The Ledge’ even though a little scared of heights. They were redoing the lower levels of the tower when we went so entrance is not as clear as could be but once done should be great.

    A very nice view of a 2 or 3 state area. On a nice day you can see forever it almost seems. I would like to go back again one day.

    Yes, it was on Labor Day that we went to see the Skydeck, so maybe that is why there were too many people there. We had to wait in long lines just to get on the elevator. You are only allowed 60 seconds on the...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
