John Hancock Center's Tilting Observatory Is Pretty Frightening

New, 1 comment

The John Hancock Center's reconceptualized and redesigned observation deck dubbed 360Chicago is nearing completion, and to get folks totally pumped up about it, they've released this video of its new "Tilt" attraction which places visitors in a big glass box of windows that tilts downward into the abyss of the Mag Mile. Up to eight people can stand in the box as it moves 1,000 feet above ground, and boy does it look frightening. Unfortunately, this may be an attraction that folks with heart conditions might want to skip out on (the Hancock has plenty of other cool things to explore). The new observation deck at the Hancock is scheduled to open sometime next month and its new Tilt attraction may have what it takes to kick the supertall observation wars into high gear.
