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.

Traveller Tips

All though 60 seconds isn't enough time if you are in big group, its just right for a couple to do.
Stepping out on the deck is not for the faint of heart, if you are afraid of heights you may hyperventilate.
Long queues in general line, poor assistance from staff— recommend Fast Track especially if you have mobility issues or back problems

Historical, scenic and fun!
Andrea_O, Sept 2023
The sky deck was obviously the most fun part, but the history provided on the way to the deck was helpful to understanding why skyscrapers were built And the views were very impressive.
Bad QR Code
Scott_M, Sept 2023
The experience was great, however the Viator QR Code would not scan. The people at the Willis Tower said that was a common problem.
Very enjoyable
Cecelia_W, Sept 2023

My experience
JesusAntonio_T, Sept 2023
Seeing the whole city was memorable. You learn so much about the structures in Chicago. I would have loved to also look at the whole city at night as well.
Misty_L, Sept 2023
We got there early so there wasn’t a lot of people was able to stay longer than the 90 seconds and was able to go in again before we left
It was very nice walking...
Norma_T, Sept 2023
It was very nice walking through and being able to eat something while there …. Loved the views from the 103 floor of Chicago ! I would have rated is a 5 star if there would areas to sit and relax with an appetizer and drink from the top … other that it was great !
Love it!
Catarine_M, Sept 2023
Speechless! The view is fantastic, and the fear. I would recommend this adventure to anyone! You can see and learn a little bit of Chicago, and you won't be disappointed
Entertaining and informative
Ronald_J, Sept 2023
Sky deck and family reaction to the transparent floor surely was hilarious. Chicago panarama is quite striking.
Beverly_L, Aug 2023
Being at the top in 90 seconds!!! Beautiful views of Chicago skyline and the buildings were over the top…birds eye views???😁
Sky box doesn’t tilt
Rebecca_G, Aug 2023
Need to make it clear that the sky box doesn’t tilt and maybe do like 3 minutes not 2 just not enough time . And I didn’t like the fact that we had to share the box
More than it Seems
Rex_E, Aug 2023
This tour was more than just taking pictures at the top, it's like a mini museum. We learned a lot about Chicago taking this tour and enjoyed it.

The views were amazing. Unfortunately, the line was a bit too long (45+ mins) for the skydeck so we skipped it. But overall it was great experience.
