Its a great view of the city and the water. Try to go on a clear day for the best views. I know Seattle is not know for clear days.

You can get the CitiPass and it will get you into the space needle twice within 24 hours. I'd recommend going in the day light hours and then at sunset. Bring your camera and your coat! Fun interactive maps/cameras.

My husband and I visited the Space Needle as part of our CityPass. The pass allowed us to skip the lines, but as it was somewhat cloudy, the lines were not very long. The most exciting part was the ride up the glass elevator to the observation deck, which lasted about forty-five seconds. We could definitely see a lot and... More

Visited the space needle last February with my two daughters and great friend. We were lucky we timed our visit during one of the rare clear and sunny seattle day!!! The kids enjoyed the ride up the restaurant. We also dined for lunch which I thought was pricey but the view was priceless. My youngest daughter enjoyed reading messages from... More

This place is amazing love the views and the whole experience. It cost $21.00 but the view you get at the top of the Space Needle is worth it. I must do if you go to Seattle.

It wasn't as tall as I had expected it to be. However I was lucky it was a sunny day so I did get good panoramic views of Seattle. Logistically it was pretty easy, bought my ticket when I reached was in the queue for about 25-30 minutes.

This is very much like the Stratosphere in Las Vegas. There is a nice shop at the bottom of the space needle if you want to buy souvenirs. And if you want to have lunch or dinner go to the top (very, very quick ride up) and sit in your leisure while the Restaurant continues to move in a circular... More

This is a must see attraction, and a quick visit. You likely are in and out in an hour, it is worth the savings to schedule a time instead of going any time. It is walkable from the open market (1 mile) and is just a good time overall.

And the lay of the land. It's a great view, but plan to go when it's not cloudy. But, it's not cheap. $19 in advance, online. $21 onsite. You can buy a ticket that gets you into both the Chihuly Glass Museum and the Space Needle. I've heard that the restaurant is very good, but I have yet to try... More

We deciced to take the ride up to the top of the space needle at Sunset. It was $ 21 but the view was priceless! They take your picture and you can have it emailed to you for free which was nice! I would definitely recommend this!
