360 CHICAGO Observation Deck, one of the top attractions in Chicago and home of TILT, the city’s highest moving attraction just introduced its first-ever Chicago Resident Appreciation Rate. The new admission rate invites 606 zip code residents to enjoy a 50 percent savings on general admission every day of the week throughout 2016. The locals-only offer comes on the heels of a spectacular multi-million dollar renovation and serves as a “thank you” to the many residents who count the John Hancock Center a favorite in the city’s skyline.
Those who provide a valid ID proving 606 zip code residency will save 50 percent on general admission entry. With 606 Resident Appreciation Rate, adult admission is $10 instead of the regular $20, and youth (ages 3-11) admission is $6.50 instead of $13 and it’s free for children under 3.
“The Hancock is an icon for Chicagoans and our observation deck provides breathtaking views of the city they adore,” says general manager Nichole Williamson. “We wanted to recognize the local affinity to the building with an offer that makes it easier for Chicagoans to visit often and fall in love with their hometown all over again,” she adds.
Simultaneously, 360 CHICAGO Observation Deck unveils an exciting new Sunset Series featuring free weekly activities focusing on photography and architecture buffs, and those who prefer the harmony of music and sunsets.
The Sunset Series on the 94th floor is open to all visitors from 6– 9 p.m. and includes:
