I have always had a thing for tall buildings, most people don't seem to get. I guess its kinda like some guys and their train collection.  So i am wondering what is the tallest building you guys have been in?

 

mine is CN tower 553M tall

Centrepoint Tower in Sydney.

I went in the revolving restaurant and got to look over Sydney. It was nice.

The random sky scrappers in NewYork. That I see regularly, or fairly often? Those banks in Miami. Wells Fargo has a huge bank here.

I've never been in a tall building. I almost went into the Gateway Arch but I heard it swayed a bit when you were up there and I got freaked out and didn't go.

Been in the CN tower a couple of times. Used to be a pretty good arcade right around the corner...haven't been in Canada in a decade so don't know if it's still there.

I;ve been in the CN tower, but it's not really a building.  Tallest building I've been in is Taipei 101.

This. And as someone with a crippling fear of heights, I both spent the WHOLE time grabbing onto rails/not going within 5m of the windows, and screaming F*** THAT when asked if I wanted to try the outside walk.

Sears Tower

Sadly the Sears Tower was renamed Willis Tower. Then again so what with changing names, Sears Tower is an icon.
