Ferris Buller at The Skydeck Willis Tower

June 11, 2016 marks the 30th anniversary of one of Chicago's most iconic movies — "Ferris Bueller's Day Off". The city is celebrating with a variety of fun activities that would guarantee approval from the "righteous dude" himself.  Literally at the top of the list is a series of anniversary experiences at the Willis Tower (or Sears Tower as it was then known and is still called by old school Chicagoans) that mirror Ferris' madcap adventures.
