Hang on tight, there's a scary new way to see the Windy City

Get this, now there's a nightmare-inducing ride that will angle you out 30 degrees while you're 94 floors above Chicago. What will they think of next?

A few weeks ago, the John Hancock Center building in Chicago reopened its 94th-floor observatory and introduced its new attraction called "Tilt."

This fear-inducing "architectural achievement" works basically like this: a series of floor-to-ceiling glass windows, each holding a visitor, slowly tilts out 1,000 feet above Chicago's Michigan Avenue, offering the brave souls a white-knuckle view they won't soon forget.

It's advertised as "a new angle on Chicago!" but it looks more like a one-way ticket to a serious case of vertigo.

See what you think. Watch these two videos of it in action.
