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.
