I always hear from other visitors that a trip up the space needle is not worth it, but I disagree. I enjoyed the panoramic scenery of Seattle as well as learning the history behind the creation of this iconic monument.

I am so afraid of heights I refused to go up on our 1st several trips to Seattle.......What a mistake! It was gorgeous. I'm so glad I did it. A definite must do if you are in Seattle.

We only went to the viewing gallery and had a look around and a cup of coffee. There were great views, well worth a visit. at the bottom we had seattle hot dogs from a street vendor that were great too.

3rd time in Space Needle. If day-time or evening it remains a great experience if your like to see the City from the top. Staffing is very good. you have photo included in price which is a excellent service. Tip, don't miss to try to fudge down in the shop - really good.

I love the Space Needle - very iconic! I had been before (in 2000) and remembered it to be an easy straightforward experience. This time, despite it being a cloudy, cold and drizzly day I had a 75 minute wait to get up there. Once up it was great - although despite them keeping people to allocated times (hence the... More

Over 56 million have toured this iconic Seattle venue and you will appreciate why when you visit. A staggering feat of construction, The Space Needle is not to be missed. Skip the restaurant unless you really need to spend $100 per person for lunch. There is a walk up kiosk with plenty of nice selections and plenty of seating on... More

Worth a visit for first timers, the majestic view of the city and ocean from high up above. You can buy a combined ticket to the space needle and the chihuly glass museum to save a few bucks.

This is a must see if you're on Seattle. I loved and took advantage of the valet parking ($16 w validated ticket) and it was simple. Parking a premium downtown. Take advantage of the free picture you get with your ticket that you can download it.
