"Great experience!"
August 2019
We arrived shortly after they opened on a Friday and did not have to spend much time waiting in line. If you buy your voucher online you are able to bypass the line to buy to pick up your tickets. The views from the top were spectacular and it was nice that they had a gift shop on top and on the main level. The wait for the ledge was a little longer and you only get a short amount of time to enjoy the view, but the staff is friendly, helpful, and ready to take photos for you!

Tip: Get there early to avoid a long wait to get to the top and to the ledge.

"Amazing Experience"
August 2019
Tripster website was simple and quick booking. Loved the experience at Skydeck Chicago, beautiful view and we went twice on the ledge to have the best pictures, different poses with only 60seconds on the ledge for each family.
I would definitely recommend Skydeck Chicago as part of the Chicago trip. Enjoy guys

"SkyDeck chicago"
August 2019
This is one of the most beautiful places I have ever been to. the view from above is absolutely stunning. You can get a 360-degree view of the entire city and even some of the outskirts. And best of all, there is a glass box that suspends from the tower into the middle of nowhere. You can stand on the glass box appreciating mankind's ability to defy laws of gravitation. You will remember this trip forever till your last breath.

"Great view of Chicago"
August 2019
Excellent views from the top of the Willis Tower. It had been about thirty years since I last visited Chicago and I made sure to take my daughter to see the beautiful views from the 103rd floor of the Willis (old Sears) Tower. We did visit on the weekend of Lollapalooza so it was very packed. We spent about three hours total in order to get to the top. But it was well worth it. Recommend this and you won't regret it. Hope you enjoy it. Thanks to Tripster for the discounts.

Tip: Make sure that you download your tickets on your phone prior to getting to the Willis tower. Internet connection and the Wifi there is very unpredictable.

"Amazing view!"
August 2019
Awesome experience! Amazing views! The line was about 20 minutes down stairs and another wait of 20 minutes or so for the ledge so plan for 1 hour to 1.5 hours for your visit. This is totally worth the wait. The view at night is supposed to be wonderful as well.

"A must-do for the Chicago experience"
July 2019
My family is from Chicago but I moved years ago for work. So when my wife, child and I came back to visit, I knew this was a required stop for them. I can't say enough how great the Willis (uh, Sears) tower and skydeck experience was. Getting g tickets on Tripster saved us over 50%!!
Get tickets here and arrive on time as the skydeck opens to avoid lines for the elevator up. Just FYI, Parking is available directly across from the entrance, but you will pay for the convenience.

We spent a lot of money having to go through this attraction faster because the attraction seemed unable to cope with the tourist numbers! Such a shame that they can’t sort the queues out more efficiently!
