I love it! It is a must see in Seattle for sure. First and foremost, easy to get to, ticketing operation is efficient and quick. The view is encompasses all one could hope for. Being greeted by Mt Ranier as you exit the wonderful glass elevators takes your breath away. Well worth my forth year year wait from my high... More

We had lunch and spent some time on the observation deck. It was amazing, we even had a clear view of Mt Rainier.

It's a great view of the city and a nice place to take pictures. Can get a little crowded and some traffic to get on the elevator but it's a tourist attraction.

Firstly if you want to go to the Chihuly museum as well as the Space Needle, buy your joint ticket there and specify the time you want to visit the Space Needle. That way you can just walk past the massive long lines and get in the queue for the elevators. We were very lucky to be there on a... More

Make sure you get a large capacity memory card and charge up your batteries (the one in the camera and the spare). You will have the chance to take pix's galore. Great vistas (360 degrees). It cost $21 for adults, but well worth it. We went there on a Saturday around 5pm and there were no lines. I can't even... More

good views, but we've been to other lookouts this trip (Calgary, Vancouver, et) that are just as good if not better. We had great views from the Edgewater Hotel as it was - this may have reduced the impact for us.

We had dinner at the top of the Needle and the food/service were outstanding. The rotating 360 degree view was interesting and the view of mountains was majestic. Highly recommend.

Being on top of the needle is awesome! Such awesome views of the whole city we visited when it was a clear day and could see the volcano in the distance. The app you can download is awesome how you stand in certain areas of the floor and things pop up on the screen. Also getting the free souvenir photo... More

Located in downtown Seattle, the Space Needle has parking close by for a fee. Once at the top, there are beautiful panoramic views. Huge gift shop with lots of souvenirs if that's something you need.
