Take a look at Chicago from the top of Skydeck Chicago - Willis Tower, the second tallest building in the country. Still called "Sears Tower" by most locals, the 108-story building looms over the city with a height of 442 m (1,451 ft). One of the world's tallest freestanding structures, the skyscraper features an observation deck on the 103rd floor. The popular skydeck is 412 m (1,353 ft) high, offering unobstructed views of Chicago and its sprawling suburbs. On clear days, the vista stretches far over the Illinois plains and across Lake Michigan, all the way to Indiana, Wisconsin, and Michigan. For a dizzying look from a glass-floored ledge jutting out into the air, get in line for the high-speed elevator to the top.

Skydeck Chicago - Willis Tower Reviews
Always wanted to visit the Willis Tower and conquer my biggest fair....Hights. it was awesome and Fun something u got to do if u visit Chicago!!! more »
El ascensor sube los 130 pisos sin parar, sube los 400 mts en menos de 2 minutos, una locura!!! Balcón vidriado a 400 mts de altura, se vé toda la ciudad, la vista es increible, lo autos son hormiguit... more »The elevator goes up the 130 floors non-stop, climbs the 400 meters in less than 2 minutes, crazy!!! Balcony glazed at 400 meters high, you can see the whole city, the view is incredible, what cars are moving ants. They give you 1min 30sec to take pictures of you on the balcony. There is a choice of paid photos with their cameras. I insist, if you don't suffer from vertigo, it's an unparalleled experience!!!
$25 bucks a pop (maybe $20 online through 3rd party vendors), only you can say if it is worth it. The view is impressive, but the wait is too long to go up. They hustle you through the glass ledge (60 seconds for groups of 3 or less) - and there is a 90 minute wait for that too, on top of the 1-2 hour wait just to get to the elevator - which they pack. Never short to bend visitors over even MORE, they sell a 'limited number of fast passes' for $75 each (per person) to shorten your wait...which in turn LENGTHENS the wait for everyone else, thereby 'encouraging' more people to buy fast passes! ! Crafty devils! Anything in the name of a buck!! And parking across the street? FIFTY BUCKS! We found an open lot about 1/2 mile for $10 (after 2pm, weekend). Now the powers that be will say "the Ramos are owned by the city if Chicago - they set the rates". That may or may not be true, but nothing says, "welcome to Chicago!" like 'GRAB THE ANKLES! And take it deep'! You can do better Chicago
AMAZING!!! Definitely a MUST DO in your lifetime if you in Chicago. Can be somewhat pricey but without a doubt worth it. Breath taking views!! Lifetime memories. Be prepared for a wait time tho. Me n my son checked in at 1:30pm and left at 6pm.
