Amazing views and a great time. Worth the visit, though a little windy and cold. There was quite a bit of rubbish and a few places where some TLC could help.

Great views of the area, can get a little busy at times go early when they just open. The deck gets very crowded if you go later and it's difficult to see and use the equipment. You have to wait for the elevator to get you up and down, but they have stairs. Worth the look at least once.

I went in morning at 9:00 but unfortunately it was closed. !! , they start to accept customers from 10:00 so I couldn't enter because I need to reach Seattle Airport , I wish in my next time to USA visit I can see it from inside because it looks beautiful and I always see it in my computer windows...

Another must do in Seattle, but be prepared to pay ridiculous amounts for rubbish food, and the obligatory US gift store, full of cheap souvenirs. Lots of homeless surround the Needle, which is quite uncomfortable for kids. Great views at top on a clear day.

The Space Needle offered a good view of downtown and Puget Sound however it's worth nothing that it is extremely windy and often very cold up there. Also, given the climate there is often low visibility. It was neat learning about the history and construction of the needle at the bottom but there are taller and more impressive structures elsewhere... More

This had a good history wall before or after you go to the top. We were there in January and the clear day was due to the cold day (36ºF and 3ºC), which allowed us to see the Olympics mtns, the Cascade mtns, and downtown Seattle. We purchased the Space Needle and Chuhuly Museum combo fir a great deal. Plan... More

We decided to check this out at night, so we could see the lights of the city. It was a great decision! It was no surprise that it was raining, but the outside line wasn't too long. It took awhile to wait for the elevators, but the story of the space needle was spread around the the walls while you... More

Fantastic views from the observation deck. The price isn't too bad, we were lucky to have discounted tickets. Dress appropriately if you want to go outside, it gets cold. Souvenir shop is good, lots of options. I recommend heading up just before sunset.

The needle offers spectacular views of Seatte, cruise ships and beyond. Typical gift shops and lines but if you're in Seattle you need to make the time to experience it. Mark it off your bucket list.

Little wait for a quick ride to the top for fantastic views of the city, Puget sound and the surrounding mountains.
