THIS incredible tilting observatory offers daredevils breathtaking downward views of Chicago from a thousand feet up.

TILT at 360 Chicago is an enclosed, glass and steel moveable platform that leans forward from 94 floors up.

Those behind the vertigo inducing attraction says it offers “thrill-seekers an exciting, safe way to take in unsurpassable views of the city, from a never-before-seen angle”.

Up to eight people can brave the platform as it slowly tilts outward.

It offers visitors to the building – formerly the John Hancock Center –  in the Windy City the chance to really lean over the edge.

The window – made from several layers of reinforced, shatter-resistant glass and precision fabricated steel- descends 30 degrees out over the side of the building.

Patrick Abisseror, CEO of Montparnasse 56 Group, the owner of 360 CHICAGO and the leading operator of observation decks said: “We had a vision for elevating the experience, and providing memories for guests that will last a lifetime.”

General Manager Nichole Williamson added: “The observatory has long been a place of discovery for visitors and

locals interested seeing the views, and who also share a love of history, architecture, and even urban planning.

“For us, the entire new system identity – 360 CHICAGO – reflects the vibrant experience of what one can find here.”

Around half a million travellers from all over the world visit 360 CHICAGO every year and are able to see four states from there – Illinois, Indiana, Michigan and Wisconsin.
