Breath taking views of Chicago. 103 floors up and views on all sides. The skydeck is great for pics. The glass box on the outside not for the faint at heart but needs to be done.

We didn't buy the fast pass. We went early (9:30-10:00) on a weekday and we're at the top in under 30 min. That includes buying the tickets and going through security.

It depends, skydeck is a fixed glass box that doesn't mo ve. 360 has the glass that tilts out over the ground. depends on your sense of adventure. I'd say 360 a bit scarier. views from both are great.
