Hello, Acrophobia! This observation deck allows you to tilt over the city

Chicago’s John Hancock Center has just opened a brand new observation deck known as TILT. And just as its name implies, this observation deck allows guests to tilt over the city from the 94th storey. Tourists are secured inside an enclosed glass and steel platform that holds up to eight people at a time and gives them a 360-degree view of the Windy City.

TILT comes five years after Chicago’s Willis Tower installed ‘Ledge‘, a glass box that extends four feet from the tower. Chicagoans really love their terrifying tourist traps!
