The view from the space needle is breathtaking! I enjoyed the rotating restaurant at the top but thought the food was very expensive and just average.

My family and I went up the Space Needle on our recent trip to Seattle. The view was absolutely spectacular. There was a big gift shop where many of us purchased souvenirs. We received a free photo which was a very nice added touch.

The views from the top are great and the interactive elements inside the observation deck are cool too, including being able to add yourself to a electronic touch screen view of visitors to the needle, very cool. When we got back down we went to the photo counter to have a look at the photo taken ad we entered. If... More

Loved the sunset and view of the city. We were told if we bought a timed ticket that we didn't have to wait in the long line up. Wrong ...they bunched us all together and we had to wait 30 mins past our ticket time. The servers at the coffee place were rude, while in line I overheard one girl... More

I've been to the Space Needle many times, since I live in Seattle. It's really expensive to go up the top. But the Space Needle is legitimately completely awesome and totally worth it. But you need to game the system by biting the bullet and EATING at the top of the Space Needle, which includes a free trip. And if... More

We debated visiting, both because of time and financial constraints, but found it worth the trip, even on a cloudy day. We were fortunate to avoid a line, and the elevator trip is short. The ticket price is a bit high, but once inside, the binoculars are free, as is the mandatory digital photo so prevalent for extra $$ at... More

A must see for locals and tourists. The restaurant affords a great view and the food is excellent. A little pricey, but worth it for first time visitors to the needle or for special occasions!

What can I say? It's the Space Needle. You just have to do it! Seriously, it's a great, the view is great, and you're on your own to stay as long as you'd like.
