Wet misty day

Was a wet misty Seattle day, but still worth a visit, some good interactive screens and information on viewing deck

I liked the ride in the elevator where we saw the city getting smaller as we go up to reach the observation deck. Also, I liked that (unlike other places / landmarks) there is a free photo that can be emailed to you. However, Overall Price was too much (almost $35) it should be less than that. Also, souvenir shop... More

When you hear Seattle, you picture Space Needle. Despite of it's historic and iconic value of the city of Seattle, there is not much going on up there. The lookout deck is caged completely which means it's almost impossible to take good landscape pictures without including the rails. Since Seattle is pretty much always cold, your visits will most likely... More

It was a great view from the deck but it's not the sort of place you want to be for long. If you can afford it the restaurant is an amazing place to sit and enjoy the view and you turn slowly around and get the whole view.

Great views plus many interactive features. Space Needle lets be honest is a must for when visiting Seattle because lets be honest, other than the Sport and Seafood. This is a city unlike every other in the US. Reasonably priced with fantastic views makes this an easy destination. Reaching the top is quite tricky as the lifts look outdated but... More

Although we had been a couple of times, our youngest now a 19 year old, did not remember. It was a perfectly clear evening when we went up. Super fun- we did a fb live post while we were up top. I love that you are not rushed off!

I went on a cold December Monday so luckily it wasn't crowded at all and there was no wait to get to the top. We were hungry and the spinning restaurant is really expensive, but there is a much cheaper cafe on the top floor that had passable food-sandwiches and bagels, along with coffee and beer/wine. The view of course... More

Knew we had to do the Space Needle; quiet ride up on the elevator; hardly know its moving; being there in December; a little cloudy, but an experience you dont want to miss; still able to see much of the area; and a good place to sit and have a drink in the restaurant.Such a landmark

Also very cool to see from the ground floor. At the very least, I recommend tourists visiting and seeing it from the ground floor. This one is pretty much a tourist must. If you can afford it, the trip to the top is very neat and a cool view of Seattle.
