Must go, despite the lines

Its is fun, if you scheadule/buy the tickets in advance, to avoid (more) lines. As a major city attraction, is always busy, but the view and the atmosphere make it worthy.

On a sunny, clear day you can see Mt. Rainier and Olympic mountains. When I went, they were cloudy. The price is a little high.

Purchase tickets early online or skip the long lines and go to the self serve kiosk. Great views of Seattle and Puget Sound

We travelled by car from Vancouver while on holiday, as you come into Seattle the first thing you see is the space needle. We went up to the top. Amazing view of downtown Seattle and surrounding areas but that's about it. They have a bar and food.

A must when you are in Seattle, the view is great and they serve a great egg Benedict and chocolate brownie with melted chocolate inside, and while there visit the museum right next to the Tower, thow the trip was in 2008

We found our visit to the Space Needle to be ok, but we would not rush back. There are queues to buy tickets and to get into the lifts in both directions. You could see Lake Union in one direction and Mt. Rainier in the other. The free digital photos were a nice touch however. They are taken as you... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to the Space Needle in Seattle. My kids loved the computer on the wall, where you can enter your name and country of origin, and it tells how far you are from home. We visited on a beautiful clear day and the views were fantastic. I would absolutely recommend seeing this attraction if you are... More

Visited the Space Needle today. Gorgeous sunny day made for perfect viewing conditions. Had tickets through City Pass and they were easily exchanged for admittance tickets. Arrived around 10:30am & beat the crowds (go early & avoid lines). It is not the kind of attraction where you spend hours, but we took some photos & viewed the city from the... More

How can you not visit the iconic Space Needle while visiting Seattle? We enjoyed walking through the city from our hotel at the market to visit the SN. The fee to access the observation deck at the top is pricey: $26 per person. Or you can make a reservation at the Sky City restaurant, spend a minimum of $25 per... More
