A group of 12 of us made lunch reservations in the Skycity restaurant so we got free entry to the observation deck and also bypassed the long line with a separate elevator. Unfortunately our party had to split into two groups of 6 although the tables were fairly close together. The weather on the day we were up there was... More

Space Needle is a landmark of Seattle and its an observation tower where you can see the Seattle's nice view from the top. And you just pay for USD4.50 for the monorail round trip from the town at Waterlake direct to the Space Needle.

I was only in Seattle for 1 day before boarding a cruise. On the top of my things to see in Seattle was the Space needle. It was worth it! We only waited in line for about 10 min. around 6pm. We probably spent 45 min-1 hour hanging out at the top & taking in the views. Also enjoyed some... More

I used my City Pass to go to the Space Needle twice in a 24 hour period. I got great views of the city at night and during daylight hours. Both were spectacular. No visit is complete without a visit to the Space Needle and the area around it.

I've been up the Sears tower several times, and didn't realize how much smaller this was. It did have a very nice gift shop and you could stay at the top as long as you liked. Very pricey we felt however.

The Space Needle is the best way to see the Seattle Skyline. Go mid week and beat the crowds. This is a must do for any Seattle bound tourist!

Great 360 degree view of Seattle. Helped us get a sense of the lay out of the city. Stay and view as long as you like. An added bonus are cameras that take your picture with your family and then email the pictures to you. This is a free service. Other attractions are right in the same immediate area, like... More

Awesome view of the city at the top of the space needle. It was a cool ride up to the top especially on a nice bright day

Long time to wait before launch (as they call the lift going up ...), but you will get the payback once on the top. OUTSTANDIG view of the city and of the bay, 360 degree. Restaurant available on the top, but no one has recommended to go there for lunch or dinner. The photo to remember the visit is included... More

Great views of the city and fairly smooth access (went on a Saturday late morning and none of the expected long lines). Views off Seattle and surroundings are gorgeous, especially when lit by sunlight. The open air deck is well worth it, including some pretty intense winds that add to the fun (and send half the visitors inside). Services are... More
