Sky Deck


When I bought tickets for Hubby’s Birthday for Blue Man Group, the coupon I used gave us free tickets to the Sky Deck (Willis Tower/Sears Tower).  We’ve wanted to go up there but at $15 a person, didn’t want to pay the price.  We finally made time to  go; we rode the train (CTA) downtown.  We (I) almost got C1 stuck in the fair wheel at one of the stations trying to push the stroller through.

Once we got there we had to wait in a lot of lines to go up elevators.  The first elevator ride was half a minute long.  They crowd as many people in as they can and send you up on your way.  Then you watch a little movie about the Willis Tower.  Then you wait in another line to go up another elevator to the 103 floor where the observation deck is.  It takes about 800 of C1 to be as tall as the Willis Tower.

They put on the building 4 window bays that stick out the side of the building about 4 feet and are pure glass.  This is scary, you walk out onto glass, looking down 103 floors to street level.  We had the people in line behind us take some pictures.  (thank you strangers).

By the time we were done looking out at the city, C1 was ready for another nap, so we headed home.  He was pretty worn out.
