Sears Tower Chicago…Do You Dare to Step On To These Platforms?

August 18, 2009

The owners of the Sears Tower Chicago, the tallest skyscraper in the United States , installed four glass box viewing platforms. These balconies are suspended 1,353 feet (412 meters) in the air on the 103rd floor. They are 10ft high and 10ft wide and can hold 5 tons with their 1.5 inch thick glasses. You can get a really impressive view from the platform and it is definitively something to try out if you happen to visit Chicago…but it is definitely not for people who have vertigo….and I am one of these people! If I were to step on to the platform, I will 100% suffer from extreme giddiness and there is a very high chance that I would vomit.

    That’s very nice pics!! The view from tower is just awesome!!! I admit that the lines were long and wait is very boring but once you up there you forget everything and it really worth waiting. The elevator was super fast we brought there within a min or two. We had a great fun; there were many things to do like learning and some fun picture things. I would love to recommend this place and I also want to suggest visiting there during football season for no wait and dont go on weekends. Try to arrange pass for visit.
