I worked for the Property Mgmt Co that ran the Sears Tower and have stood on the upper roof looking over the edge, also did the same on their Bank of America Tower in LA.

Taipei 101, followed by ICC and IFC in Hong Kong and the Empire State Building in New York. Conclusio: I'll probably never spend money on visiting an observation deck again. Not worth the money.

Burj Khalifa. The observation deck should have been much higher up. 452 m is not that impressive for such a tall building.
