We enjoyed our trip to the Space Needle. We were early for dinner reservations at Sky City so we had about 30 minutes to enjoy the view of the water and Seattle sky line. The view was incredible and well worth coming early to enjoy. They are cheaper options (Columbia Tower) but the Space Needle is still really fun.

View is incredible. Lines were kind of long to the observatory. Bit pricy. No lines or wait for going down.

I visited here as a child in 1962. It was wonderful to see the sight again. I was disappointed that the Science exhibit cost so much money.

I did this at the request of other people in our party and I think it was very overpriced relative to the experience and views of what you can see around the city. Either a harbor cruise and/or a trip up the Sky View Observatory is a better experience to see the city and save some money.

Got our panoramic view from on top, a bit windy but so worth doing. We ate on top and got to spend two hours enjoying the beautiful view

The locals will suggest you go to Smith Tower or some other location for a just-as-good-if-not-better view (that actually INCLUDES the space needle in the view). We went when the lines weren't too long, but it got very crowded during the night viewing. If you go when it is chilly out, wear proper clothes. Tickets are a bit expensive if... More

Its will be a lot more interesting if you get the app. It was very cool and more interesting that I thought. We started a few hours and took it all in. The monorail but was cool too.

You just have to. Nice area of Seattle. Best time is 10 AM weekdays. One internet inquiry said they open at 9 AM, so be advised. More to see right around the Space Needle so you could spend most of a day. Don't like waiting in line? Use the automated ticket kiosks.

Make sure to book online. No need to print your tickets just present the bar code on your phone to enter. I advise you to buy online through the main website. I did that and I paid for both chihully garden and space needle observatory for about $34 so it was a good deal. Apparently there is something called a... More
