One of the highlights of Seattle! I need to come back here during the night because I know the views are different during night time. And I recommend purchasing Space Needle AND Chihuly Garden if you're planning to do both, save yourself $5 =)!

Weirdly, and not the fault of the Space Needle people, it's just not as impressive as it would have been years ago. Maybe because it's no longer one of the tallest buildings in Seattle. Still, it's interesting and worth the trip. And, if you choose to have dinner at the top, you're not looking through a railing. Taking the sky... More

Always wanted to go to this attraction. I am not fond of heights but still went. The elevator has some windows so stood in back and once up the views were great. We had a beautiful day so we were lucky. So glad went and did combo ticket with Chihuly Garden and Glass. This is a must see when in... More

I will preface my review by saying that the we had excellent weather and visibility on our visit. The Space Needle is must see. The views are breathtaking, bring your big camera for great pictures and all. Disappointed by the high prices at the restaurant with a minimum charge etc. Don't worry you have excellent food choices in the Armoury... More

I'm from Chicago, spent sometime in New York, and live in St. Louis....so I've been up quite a few tall buildings. I can honestly say that the space needle is my favorite. The clear elevator on the way up is a nice touch. I also just can't say enough about how much I love that they have a restaurant at... More

I have been to the space needle for lunch several times. Always to take a friend or relative from out of town. The food is a good value and on a clear day the view cannot be beat. The needle is a piece of history and one of the most famous landmarks in the country. How could you not go... More

For the last nine years we have gone Christmas shopping, just the two of us, and then we have had a special night out, topped off by dinner at the Space Needle near Christmas. The view is terrific, the food good, the service excellent and my grand daughter and I always have a good time. She is now nearing sixteen... More

On a clear day, the view is amazing! You'll always regret it if you visit Seattle and don't visit the Space Needle, so just do it! The lines move pretty well, the top of the needle has amazing views, and the snacks, while pricey, are absolutely delicious! I've been twice (both times with out-of-town guests), and I enjoyed myself each... More

If you've never gone to the top of the Space Needle, I recommend you do this, but only once. I've lived here 13 years, and it was only a couple of years ago that I finally made it to the top. The view, of course, was beautiful. But honestly, at approximately 17.00 (at least that's how much it was the... More
