Willis Tower - Review

Willis Tower (formerly named and still commonly referred to as Sears Tower) is no longer the tallest building in the world, still the Tower remains an important destination. It’s main attraction is it’s observatory deck, which looks out around for about fifty miles. The best part of the sky deck is the glass balcony, a ledge that extends out of the building, allowing you the surreal feeling of standing on thin air. If you happen to be here when the sun goes down, the sights are just beautiful.

Willis Tower, Chicago Reviews

  • I really enjoyed the experience. I'm from the east coast and we have many tall buildings but I liked the different views here, especially the lake and that beautiful water. The glass boxes with the glass floor were neat even though we waited 20-30 minutes to do it. Everything is expensive from the tickets to souvenirs to food and drink but remember this is Chicago and a comparitable time in NYC is going to be even more money.

  • The Willis Tower AKA Sears Tower, was completed in 1974. What's the building open it took over, the world's tallest building. From the Twin Towers in New York City, the building has an observation deck. Where you can step out on the ledge, which extends 4ft outside the building. And it has a spectacular View from the north side from the Westside and lake views. A lot of people don't know how the architecture, designed the building. The architecture got to design, of the building from a carton of cigarettes. You pull one cigarette up or one down you pull one down a little further.

  • Using our Chicago Go Pass we went to the front of the line...which was very long. Sunset view was worth the 20 minute wait. Didn't go out on the glass extension. Huge line to spend a few seconds there and not worth the wait. Spent over an hour there. Fascinating! Enjoyed watching all the tourists from around the world take pictures of themselves!!!

  • It is an amazing experience for those who love heights! Although when I've tried it the weather was foggy and cloudy but this didn't make the experience any less exciting! 24$ for the ride is so fair. I would definitely try it again!

  • A great view up there; I'd highly recommend any of the city pass (or similar) deals that are available to bundle this with other attractions. Buying a pass for just this on its own is somewhat expensive but it gets quite a bit cheaper with the 3 and 5 attraction deals. I took my 3 and 8 year old boys up on our visit and we really enjoyed it. My 3 year old was not terribly impressed with the museum in the basement but nobody cared how much (or little) time we spent up there. You do end up going through quite a few gift shops on the way through; it can be difficult to get through there without spending a lot of money unless you really stay on top of what your kids are doing in there.
