1,353 feet above ground level, the skydeck attracts approximately 25,000 visitors a day. It cost $15 to take an elevator ride up to the 103rd floor.

Lets do the maths, on average we have 25,000 visitors X $15 per day X 30 days = $11,250,000. More or less $135,000,000 per year. The world’s tallest twin tower – the Petronas Twin Tower’s Skybridge admission is free.
