360 Chicago Observation Deck Reviews
This was my first time in Chicago and this was definitely worth the trip to see the city from above. Though the scenery at night was awesome, it's well overpriced. We went late which was perfect because there was only a handful of people spread throughout the observation deck. I would not have wanted to experience this if it was as busy as it looks it gets. I was pleased by the many spaces to sit and relax and take in the views. The bar service was just ok but not complaining as I wasn't aware there was a bar there in the first place. The bartender misunderstood our order and made the wrong drinks but corrected the order for us. The workers didn't seem like bartenders but more just some college kids who wanted to go home. Nonetheless we enjoyed a drink and a spot on a bench and overlooked the city for a while. My favorite feature was the touch map where you can zoom in on each building and learn facts about certain spots or buildings in Chicago. If it is your first visit to the city I recommend seeing the city from above. You wont regret it.
This was fun and quick to get into on a Saturday afternoon. Beautiful views. The tilt was fun and gave an extra bit of adventure to the experience. It's great that there is a bar up there with a nice lounge. Would be great place to meet friends for drinks. Worth the visit if you haven't been there yet.
