Spectacular view

One of the symbols of Seattle! You can't miss it, great view, especially at night. It's not difficult go there, because you can see the tower from different point of the city.

Fabulous views, the restaurant had great service and delicious food - well worth the expense! If you're wondering if it's worth finish there, it is. Our dinner saw about three rotations of the sites over sunset and was breathtaking.

I have been up the Space Needle a half-dozen times in my 55 years and I enjoyed this trip the most! They've added a coffee bar and free photo stations for guests to enjoy. We had fun having our photos take and using the interactive stations to choose our photos and send them to email and Facebook. The cost to... More

This is an absolute must-see when you're in the area. The Space Needle has been a national icon for the last 52 years. I can't recommend this enough, even though it's not cheap, but it's worth every penny for the experience and the view. There's a Starbucks at the top and a lot of seating, and an outdoor viewing area... More

We came in February and went up at night and during the day. It is so well worth doing the two trips. Staff is all very efficient at moving people a long quickly to the top. Telescopes at the top are free to look through. There are many tangible ways to explore at the top with various screens, the app,... More

The space needle is a must see attraction in Seattle and we go every time we are there. It is such an iconic place and the spinning floor gives the kids a kick. Notes are written on napkins and placed in the window and you stay until you see yours again. Everyone writes their name and a message on the... More

The Space Needle is the Space Needle. Good to see once but after that you are good. Better views at other places around the city. I suggest getting the City Pass to avoid some of the lines.

We visited the Space Needle twice while in Seattle, courtesy of the 24 hour pass they offer. It was interesting both times - the first late in the evening, and the second at sunset the following day. You can see much of Seattle, the ocean, and surrounding areas. It was an interesting attraction, though is certainly not inexpensive for the... More
