It is not worth the trouble of long waiting lines and expesive tickets to enter...if you want a good view of the city, go to kerry park! Better view for free.

Service was awesome, food was excellent, and views were amazing! We went to Seattle only for the baseball park tour we are doing but we both loved the city!

We have never been to Seattle and we visited the Space Needle on June 4, 2014 and had a very good experience. We parked in a self park lot($10 all day) and it was a short walk to the Space Needle and Chihuly Glass Museum. We got a senior discount for both and the cost was worth the experience. The... More

Just one of those things you HAVE to do when visiting Seattle! Nice view at the top. The coolest thing was seeing all the sea planes flying in around you and actually BELOW you which was neat. Flying over the city and landing on the water. Once we went up, we were only up there 15-20 mins max. Was interested... More

The views of the city and sound are really great. I wouldn't say it was the number 1 thing on the list to do but it is one of those "must do" things. It was a bit cloudy and drizzly (it is Seattle) but we did get some good pictures. Really enjoyed the history of the Needle. Definitely buy the... More

Definitely worth a trip up the Space Needle, though make sure it is a clear day otherwise you will not get the best out of this attraction.

This was the first time I was ever 520 feet above a huge city and the views were absolutely amazing. Lots of thought and planning has gone into surrounding businesses as many roof tops are decorated for you to enjoy while up top. The elevator ride to the top was a little fast for my liking but in 40 seconds... More

Worth the wait, queue moved quickly and well priced. Very quick trip to the top with amazing 360 degree views of Seattle. Plenty of photo opportunities. Food at the top was okay, not a big selection, but not badly priced.

The Space needle is a must-see in Seattle. The views from the top are great, wanted to go to the rotating restaurant but was told the food wasn't worth it, so i didnt go. Other than that we enjoyed the excellent views of Mt. Rainier, the Olympic Moutains, the City, Puget sound and even took a photo of my hotel... More
