The Hancock Center's Frightening Tilt Attraction Opens April 16

The John Hancock Center's latest entry into tourist attractions that will surely scare the bejesus out of people is slated to open April 16. "Tilt" places eight visitors in a glass windowed box 1,000 feet above ground and literally tilts forward over Michigan Avenue, offering unobstructed and rather frightening views of the skyline. Thrill seekers can expect to shell out $5 for a 30-40 second Tilt experience which will be a part of the Hancock's renovated and rebrand observatory 360chicago. The attraction, developed by engineering firm Thornton Tomasetti, will be formally unveiled April 6 at the U.S. Travel Association's International Pow Wow 2014 taking place in Chicago, and will open to the public ten days later.
