I guess it's on par with others (Empire State Building, etc...), but felt like you basically payed $20 bucks for an elevator ride. Don't get me wrong; it's a great view of Seattle, it just didn't give you much value outside of that. Everyone who works there is super nice and we enjoyed a lovely dinner at the restaurant on...

The one thing you associate Seattle with is the space needle so not visiting it at least once is basically a sin. On a clear day you can see for miles in each direction. It is smaller than you expect but the view of the Puget Sound is worth it!

It's a good view from the top but that's about all. It's kind of pricy for what you get but it's worth doing once. Also I really would not recommend eating at the restaurant. It costs about what you would expect from a location like that but the food was really mediocre.

If you can make it up to the space needle just before sunset your eyes will have the treat of their life. On a clear Day you can see over to a few of the islands and all over the Seattle area. Definitely worth your time. The cost is a little high but stunning views.

Honestly best view from up top! My family and I enjoyed visiting and learning all the history about the space needle. Definitely a must see while in Seattle! It is a bit pricy but honestly it is worth it - make sure to check out the glass museum next door while your there as well!

No matter how many times our family has visited Seattle, let alone the years I lived in the city while attending university; it is always fun to go up to the top of "the Needle." Make sure you bring your camera or cellphone so you can take your photos. A few recommendations to help families: *Yes you can purchase your... More

Expensive for a group of 4. We went at night so maybe that's different than the day, but I didn't think it was worth the $20+ per person. Yes, you get awesome 360 views of the city, but once you walk around, there's not much else to do up there. Didn't try the snack bar, but it's up there if... More

Great views of the city especially at night! My husband didn't stay long because he doesn't like heights but an awesome sight to see! Free admission of you eat at restaurant!

Take your time. Look at the city from all around. Take the pictures with your friends or yourself! Read the walls with history. Add yourself to the list of visitors. Take in the feel of what people back in the World's Fair must have felt when they went up that for the first time. That is how you are truly... More
