Do this at night to see all the buildings lite with gorgeous lights. The staff is mostly made of college age young adults. The customer service is subpar but the view of downtown-- at night-- makes up for the lack of great customer service to match with the rest of the experience.

We went around 8pm so we can catch the sunset but Ofcourse it was super busy so getting pictures was hard because everyone was hogging all the windows. Stunning view of Chicago tho from north east south and west. Would recommend but maybe during a less busy time or plan to be there for a while so u can get good pics!

It was a very nice experience. Before going to the observation deck, there were props for photo ops. Once you get to the observation deck, there's a line to have the opportunity to take pictures on the ledge, however, it is timed due to amount of people waiting in line. You only get 2 minutes to take pictures on the ledge. Great views, nonetheless.
