Just a few days ago, a new viewpoint was inaugurated in Chicago, United States, which could perfectly be among the most spectacular viewpoints in the world.
Located in the 360 Chicago building (until now its official name was John Hancock Observatory), the Tilt Lookout consists of a glass and steel platform on the 94th floor (over 300 meters high) that accommodates up to eight visitors per shift. However, height is not what makes it special. Do you want to discover what is extraordinary about this spectacular viewpoint? Well watch out!
A way of looking at the skyline only
The "epic" thing, as Tilt's own owners claim, is that once visitors are safely located indoors, the platform slowly leans out at an angle of about 30 degrees, a way of looking at the skyline unique so far. Or could you ever have been hanging on the void?
A pioneering city in architecture
As stated at the opening of Tilt Nichole Williamson, General Manager of 360 Chicago, Chicago has always been a "pioneering city in architecture, birthplace of skyscrapers, territory of innovative architecture." Thus, Tilt continues to promote "that tradition."
5 dollars for living a unique sensation
To be able to experience sensations such as amazement, vertigo, emotion or the impression of hanging on the void 300 meters away, you must pay $ 5. If you are a lover of heights, it is surely worth it, as it will be to climb the glass viewpoint located more than 4,000 meters high in the Alps or the Tower of Sydney.
Then we leave you with a video that explains the mechanism of this spectacular viewpoint. Do not miss it!
