Visitors at the Willis Tower were again standing in the Skydeck’s glass enclosures on Friday, perched 1,300 feet over the sidewalk below, after crews repaired one of the boxes that was damaged late Wednesday.
The cracks formed after a group of visitors to the Skydeck at the Willis Tower stepped out on the Ledge, but Willis Tower officials said the glass itself did not crack, only the protective coating.
The “Ledge” at Willis Tower has a new rival for skyscraper thrills in Chicago. The Hancock Center has its own gravity-defying feature, “Tilt,” which lets visitors lean out over the edge of its observation deck at a 30-degree angle.
The Willis Tower is tall! Just… you know… so you know. Why not take a trip up to its Skydeck to get a real grasp of how big this behemoth building is?
