Tilt! at the 94th Floor

Adrenaline junkies are sure to delight in a new feature called "Tilt!" on the 94th floor of the John Hancock Center in Chicago. Located in the John Hancock Observatory, now renamed "360°  Chicago," Tilt! doesn't appear to be much from the inside, except floor-to-ceiling windows with long, metal bars attached vertically between them. The adventurous participants stand against the windows, which overlook Chestnut street and offer views of the Water Tower and Michigan Avenue. Then they hold on to the bars as an eight-window portion of the wall slants outward at a 30° angle. Tilters are suspended against the glass as they look out at the spectacular view and down at the 1000-foot drop to the pavement. Windows, don't fail them now!
