The city that produced the first ever skyscraper is now a proud owner of a brand new 1000 feet high watching platform that will make your head spin from the downward-facing views. Starting from this spring all Chicago residents and visiting tourist will be treated with “a new perspective” on their favorite city from the formerly John Hancock Observatory.
This attraction that cost only $5 (plus the cost of general admission ) is considered to be the first in the world according to the general manager Nichole Williamson. It can fit eight people inside the movable glass platform that slowly tilts at an 30 degree angle, providing a jaw-dropping panoramic view of the city. Officials say that the whole experience lasts 30 seconds. The movement in and out of the building is very controlled so the visitors wont be too terrified and they can walk away with a memorable and thrilling experience.
In a recent interview Patrick Abisseror, the CEO of Montparnasse 56 Group, that owns 360 Chicago said: ” We had a vision for elevating the experience, and providing memories for guests that will last a lifetime.” “TILT is yet another example of the innovative and forward-thinking vision of Montparnasse 56 Group.”
Even the mayor of Chicago, Rahm Emanuel is convicted that this attraction will have a new profound effect on tourism, and the power to attract adrenalin seekers from around the world.
Visiting an observatory deck will no longer be a passive experience.
