The Ledge, Tilt, SkySlide and Other Attractions: Rejuvenating Observation Decks

Jason Gabel

Over the past few years, numerous existing observation decks have been completely reinvented, partly in an effort to compete with newcomers on the market, but also to capitalize on the public’s desire to see cities in new and exciting ways. Thus, in the U.S. alone, we’ve seen the arrival of “The Ledge” at Willis Tower, “Tilt” at John Hancock Center, and “Skyslide” at US Bank Tower, all of which add a pump of adrenaline to the observation experience. This session overviewed how observation decks around the world are being repositioned for the 21st century.
