Well what a great view , where do you start we had a very hot day sky was clear but it was so busy, we had a time slot, but when you got in you could stay as long as you want. You could get drink and food in there. Also a gift shop on the way in. When you... More

I'm not very comfortable with heights so I wasn't sure how comfortable I would feel on the observation deck. I'm so glad I went! The view was amazing and it was a very comfortable environment with the way the number of visitors at one time is controlled. The interactive map inside the observation deck allows you to touch items on... More

Costly visit up the Space Needle, made better value when you purchase it in conjunction with the Chihuly Gardens/ Citypass.

Indoors had a lot of informative... More

My family loved this attraction. In addition to the spectacular views of a great city, there are free photos. My son loved a digital wall of images that he could manipulate.

The concierge at my hotel recommended that I go at sunset and I'm so glad I did. The views, as well as the sunset, were spectacular. Don't miss out on this experience. Take the monorail -- it makes getting there so easy.

I would do this at least once, just to say I was there but there are plenty of other options if you want a view of Seattle, for example an $8.50 ferry boat ride from pier 52 (can't beat the value). The structure itself is just as interesting at ground level. No need to pay a fee just walking around... More

This was a fun and informative experience. We learned the architectural history of the Needle, experienced the view from the top, and enjoyed some of the interactive displays.

Beautiful city views of Seattle. A bit windy and chilly. Drinks and restaurant if hungry you can take a digital picture and email it to yourself. Very nice
