It's one of those things that if you've been to (or lived in) Chicago you just have to do at least once. yes at $19 per adult and i think 10 fora child.... its on the pricy side but it's the same cost as the Hancocks 360 another Chicago must do. We recently spent the day downtown being tourists and decided to go for it. It was a bit overcast and started to storm which on the one hand kept the crowds away but on the other gave us a less than ideal view. The thunderstorm while we were up there was actually pretty cool but everyone wants to see the crystal clear view so be sure to try to visit on a clear day. You can read about and then watch a movie about the history of the "sears" tower and then get ready for the elevator ride up to the 103rd floor. for those a bit squeamish there is a video on the elevator to distract both up and down which was great for the kids. my little guy's ears popped so be sure to have some gum or candy. I'm sure they sell it but honestly who knows the price in the gift shops ;) Hint: There are actually 4 ledges. The first line is where they take pictures of you that they try to sell you later and no they wont allow you to use your own photos. Skip the first line and go to one of the other 3 and you can stand out there and take your own pictures....there was a bit of a wait but it's worth saving 30 bucks on a picture or not having one at all.
