It's great to see Chicago on Skydeck. It's interesting to see the glass windowsill stretching out of the viewing platform, which feels as if it's suspended in the air. But because of its attractiveness, there are many people queuing for photos. In addition to taking your own photos, you can also ask the professional photographer staff over there to take pictures on the glass table and buy them. In the evening, you can see not only Chicago in the daytime, but also sunset and night scenery.
The Willis Tower is the tallest building in the world and the landmark of Chicago after it was built that year. The queue time may be longer, but if it's rainy, there may be fewer people. If you look at the whole Chicago from the Willis Tower, you can take your own photos. If you don't lack money, you can use the camera of the viewing platform and finally wash out the photos as a souvenir. The price is 30 dollars a piece.
Willis Tower View Terrace is 103 stories in the building, which is the highest viewing terrace in Chicago. Tickets are $23. Although there is no queue for tickets, there is a long queue to go to the viewing platform, so when you buy tickets, the staff will remind you about how long it will take to decide whether to buy tickets. We went in the evening. Fortunately, we got on the elevator in about 40 minutes. The elevator is fast, but it needs to come down in the middle and change to another elevator. The viewing terrace is large enough to overlook the streets of Chicago through the surrounding glass windows. The most exciting thing is that there are several all-glass spaces extending out of the viewing platform, which can directly see the ground hundreds of meters below, but none of our companions are afraid of heights. Here we put out poses to take pictures.
Willis Tower looks like a skyscraper built by Sears at his own expense. The 442-meter-high building is 527 meters tall, the world's tallest building from 1973 to 1998. The Skydeck viewing platform on the top can see the whole city and the highest building in the United States. It's supposed to calm down in the 103-storey transparent glass Skydeck. You need no heightphobia. Believe it, you can jump and haw.
After the rain, it finally cleared up and rushed to Skydeck to beat Carter. Don't regret not having practiced handstand well.
We bought tickets early but did not get into the tour smoothly, because the queue was incredibly long and the waiting time was expected to take two hours. We have been told that there will be a fast lane opening for early ticket purchase, but the reality is that there is only one team on the spot, and there is no difference between ticket holders and non-ticket holders. If the site can be managed better and more orderly, I believe that every visitor will have a good experience and can see the shocking scenery.
103-storey skyline viewing platform, courage to step on the all-glass structure of the transparent viewing platform, look down at the moment, see the continuous flow of golden streets, high-rise near and far, you will truly feel the infinite charm of modern cities. -
We stayed in front of almost every window for a long time, and bought a Lego toy of Willis tower. Finally, we found that the famous world's top ten observatories were waiting in line. When we finished the first round and the second, Willis Tower would close. Our photography technology is very limited, and it seems that the effect can not be taken. When waiting in line, a couple of American couples asked us to take a picture for them. They were surprised to find that everyone was D90. They were very professional and helped us adjust the effect they wanted. They took the picture directly, but we only had a high pixel. Ouch, the gap. Of course, later they volunteer to help us take pictures, or very grateful.
