We made reservations for the restaurant in the space needle, but we went up to the observation deck first. Wow.... you could see forever on a clear day, but unfortunately we had a cloudy day. Even with clouds, the view was amazing! We walked around the entire observation deck and spent about an hour taking pictures from every angle. Then... More

It was our first day in Seattle and we happen to have above average weather. Clear sunny day and close to sunset was the recipe for success. What great amazing views you get 360° Panorama for the entire downtown Seattle area. Views to the west over the mountains and to the east of the snowcapped peaks of Washington. You can... More

The views are nice but the much less expensive views from the bay are nice too. It's pretty pricy. If your a first time tourist you should see the space needle but definitely a once thing.

Traveled here on a weekend. Many friends suggested that we should to the brunch since it includes access to the top. Problem is on the weekend the brunch prices go up. I would recommend the brunch for Mon-Thurs. For a little extra you get a meal and a view. My kids enjoyed looking out over Seattle. They had a fun... More

The experience was very nice. The views are spectacular, especially if it's a clear day. The exhibits are interesting and informative. We enjoyed the time spent there and would recommend it for families too.

Because I bought the city pass, so I can go up to take a look the downtown seattle night view, it's quite amazing though! But If you wanna save money, I will recommend the kerry park!

The ticket for theSpace Needle and Chihuly Gardens is not cheap--combined over $60. But, one should go up the Space Needle at least once. Great 360 degree panoramic views of Seattle, Puget Sound, surrounding neighborhoods. Once is enough for the Needle; Chihuly should be enjoyed more than once.

We arrived about a half hour before sunset so we could see the city in the daylight, watch the amazing sunset and see the city lights. There are tables inside where you can sit with a coffee or glass or wine while enjoying the view. The gift shop has everything one could want and quite a few things were priced... More

I have to admit it, I didn't go all the way up. It's pretty expensive and I thought it was a better idea to enjoy the view over Seatlle somewhere else (colombia center-must do). But it's like the Eifel tower in Paris, you have to go and at least stand underneath it to take a pic!

Great view and exciting to be on this well known landmark. Enjoy a cup of coffee and visit the gift shop. There is a lot to see but i would eat somewhere else as the prices are very high.
