Yep, its just a tall building with a view. But unlike many other city centre towers the view from the space needle includes Punget sound, Olympian mountains, down town, and on a good day mount Ranier. So really offers quite a bit more. It's also just the right height to get stunning vistas but without being too remote. Cost was... More

As one of the landmark in Seattle, Washington, the offered 360 degrees view of the city is very beautiful and appreciate the very scenic area of the place. There are many amenities that one can use in order to look closely on any interesting place that one want to see. One can add their name in the directory to record... More

I went to the Space Needle bt myself. I had the day to spend alone, while my daughter had a conference. I went in the morning . There were no crowds. Beautiful views of the city and water. Worth the trip!

My wife and I went up the space needle. It was about $20 a person. We went up and we did it. I feel like going to Seattle it is something we had to do. It is probably way more fun with kids. They did have some cool technology stuff at the top. Overall I would say it was probably... More

I wasn't sure I would need to see the city at night after I saw it by day, but it IS worth the money and the time to go back and see it at night. JUST DO IT! You'll be glad that you did!

Seattle and the Space Needle do go hand in hand and a person needs to go to the top while there. We made reservations at the restaurant at the top for dinner. We did not have to pay the $21 or whatever the fee is to go to the top. We were seated by the window and it was so... More

The Space Needle is almost a mandatory stop on any Seattle city tour; a must see it once kinda deal. One of those situations that if you had been there and not done that the missed opportunity might end up biting you in your Seattle memories, for the rest of your life. So, when our city tour ended at the... More
