The Windy City is inviting brave folks to see Chicago from a bird’s eye view. On Saturday, May 10, at 9 a.m., the exciting TILT will open at 360 Chicago, formerly the John Hancock Observatory.

TILT is an enclosed glass and steel moveable platform that holds up to eight visitors per cycle. Guest step inside and the platform slowly tilts outward for downward-facing views of Chicago.

It’s a whole new experience to be 1,000 feet above The Magnificent Mile and the folks behind TILT hope to help draw 55 million travelers to Chicago by 2020. The launch of TILT is expected to be a major attraction, a must-see for visitors from around the world.

TILT is the brainchild of Paris-based Montparnasse 56 Group, owners of 360 CHICAGO. Located along 360 CHICAGO’s southern exposure, TILT can be enjoyed at an introductory rate of $5 per experience, plus the price of general admission to the observatory. Tickets can be purchased in person at the 360 CHICAGO ticketing desk.

360 CHICAGO itself is quite an experience, offering wonderful views of Lake Michigan and the Chicago skyline. Guests can enjoy 360-degree views spanning four states along with interactive learning opportunities. Even getting to the site is exciting, accessed by the fastest elevators in the country.

Located on the cusp of Lake Michigan, 360 CHICAGO sits in the heart of the city, a thousand feet above The Magnificent Mile®. With unparalleled views of the lake and the city skyline, it delivers a unique perspective of Chicago.

360 CHICAGO is open every day from 9 a.m. to 11 p.m. The last ticket is sold at 10:30 p.m. For more information, visit www.360chicago.com.
