We went at 8am to visit this attraction. I would recommend that anyone wanting to really enjoy this attraction goes early. There is no time limit on visitors staying up there which means it can get very busy. When we got to the top the views are breathtaking and we were lucky enough to see the mount Rainier back drop...

Might as well stop in to get your free pics (use your entry ticket for the free pic at the top, not the one they gave you for the free pic at the bottom!), enjoy the view and have a coffe/snack at the top. It's worth the $$

When we got there the queues were so long that we only saw it from the ground. Waiting over an hour and a half in the sun was not an option for us. You would need to get there before opening time to avoid the queues.

A Seattle CityPass will save you money but you will have to stand in line to get a time ticket, and your second visit has to be within 24 hours of the first visit. Small children have a tough time seeing over railing and the crowds can pack the railings making it tough to see the skyline. Little ones will... More

I went to the Space Needle since it was my first trip to Seattle and wanted to cross that off my must see list. I went early in the morning, which I would absolutely suggest to anyone planning a trip up. There was no line at al since I bought my tickets ahead of time. I was even able to... More

It is a Seattle landmark and a must see for any first time visitor. Be prepared to buy you ticket and then come back and go up. Great views of the city.

Enjoy a fantastic 360 degree of Seattle and surroundings from this high perch above the city. Located in the Seattle Center, the Space Needle is a survivor from an expo held years ago and is well worth a visit. We strongly suggest you go late in the day to avoid the big crowds that can sometimes line up to see... More

We arrived at the ticketing booth at 9.15am and got a ticket for the 9.30am entry, so no wait in line, plus it was very quiet at the top. The views of the city are amazing, we were lucky it was a clear day. The gadgets and activities available were also great. Definitely recommend this.

Buy your ticket or Citypass in advance and go first thing in the morning. We had a very short wait for the day visit, so all was great. At night, the wait was long but the view was great. If long lines & waiting bother you, skip the night visit.

We were so lucky to get here on a sunny day. The views are amazing and a must-see! What I didn't like was it was crowded. Great for pictures.
