If you’re hosting a kids’ birthday party, Chicago is full of options — but none are as historic and memorable as the legendary Willis Tower. Why wait through crowds of tourists when you can book the entire 99th floor all to yourself? The floor-to-ceiling windows provide a panoramic view of the city around you, so the little ones can get a great view around the entire venue. Plus, you can book optional VIP access to The Ledge — an enclosed glass box that extends 4.3 feet from the building, so you feel like you’re floating on air!


Looking for teenage birthday ideas in Chicago? There’s no better photo op for the birthday boy or girl than Skydeck! Snap away while looking over the lakefront or take pictures of the surrounding four states right from the window of your private floor! And while your guests are free to take all the selfies that they’d like, we also offer optional photo packages and souvenir photos for that professional touch. Don’t forget about the spacious dance floor — the perfect place to burn off some energy after your catered meal!
