“Sky Water Slide” Coming to Top of the Hancock

New 1,000-ft water slide would set a new world record

If it was real.

But hey, while you're here...

Help us Protect Lake Michigan

April is Earth Month, and we're doing something much less wasteful than building a giant water slide.

360 CHICAGO Observation Deck looks out directly over our city's most cherished natural resource: Lake Michigan. From the 94th floor, we watch it freeze every winter and crowd with Chicago boaters every summer. We see water levels rise and fall. We see it illuminated with the reflection from Navy Pier's fireworks. We watch steam rising from its surface during extreme cold snaps. Lake Michigan is a living, breathing, vital part of our city. During Earth Month, we want to do what we can to preserve the Lake for generations to come.
