Ever wonder what it would feel like to stand 94 stories and 1,000 feet above the streets of Chicago, with 360-degree views? Head to the John Hancock Center, which opened a new sky deck experience over the weekend that does just that.
TILT, a glass-lined enclosure provides visitors to the Hancock’s 94th-story observation deck to step out from the floor and stand 1,000 feet above Michigan Avenue. The experience is similar to the Willis Tower’s Skydeck Ledge, which features a glass enclosed step out from its 103rd story observation deck. While Skydeck is higher, TILT provides a unique experience – the enclosure actually tilts and pivots 30 degrees downward! The tilt allows up to eight passengers at a time to get a view face down – not entirely for the faint of heart.
TILT is now open at the John Hancock observation deck, which has been renamed 360 Chicago. Admission to the deck is $18, with TILT tickets an additional $5. Willis Tower’s Skydeck admission is $19, including the Ledge.
