This is something you simply have to do. The views are excellent and, when we went, the lines were short even though the day was fine and the sky clear. The highlight is the view of Mount Rainier. Make sure you pick a good day if you can.

Yes, the views from the space needle are great. But, if I didn't visit the space needle during my Seattle visit I wouldn't have been disappointed. There are so many other beautiful, fun places to visit and felt I really didn't get anything out of this experience.

With ticket you're able to use twice in the same day. I went once during the day and then went to see the sunset. It was nice.

This was a must do on our list of things to do in Seattle. The day was clear and Mt Ranier was beautiful as was the entire walk around. They have tables and a snack bar which was nice to sit and have a cup of coffee while u look out at the beautiful mountains and all the scenery. A... More

Went here the other day. Wasn't too busy but still has to queue up. Cost $23.10 for a general admission but there are other ticket types you can purchase. Stunning views to take in. The outside camera which takes as pic of you when you scan your ticket didn't work. You get a free digital pic that is emailed to... More

What a view! We completely enjoyed our visit and the spectacular view. It was cold and windy, but can be viewed from inside where the view is just as good.

Great place to take out of town guests. If you go to the SkyCity Restaurant at the top for a meal (there is a minimum about $25) your elevator to the observation deck and restaurant is free -usually it costs about $18/pp. so for an add't $10-15 you get lunch and a leisurely view. Food is pretty good. Reservations a... More

Going to the Space Needle observation deck is a peak into history. Exhibits take you back to the early 1960s when it was built and tells the Space Needle story. On a clear day the observation deck offers a panoramic view of Seattle and beyond including the ocean and the Olympic Peninsula to the west, Mount Baker to the north,... More
