Great views of Seattle! The viewing deck is great with 360 views of the city and sound. The floor with glass floor also really cool! Got some great family pics!

Unfortunately we could not actually go on the space needle as we had to leave for our coach back to Canada. Our time slot was 5:45pm- 6pm and we lined up at 5:40 and were still waiting at 6:35pm which is the latest we could...More

The 40 second trip up to the top is over before you know it, as one looks out the glass of the external elevator. Once at the top the outer area is open to the air and provides tremendous 360 degree views of this beautiful...More

As expected you get an eagle view of the town. Can be crowded and the elevators down are one level below the panoramic floor. Can be interesting: waiting for the elevator while the floor is moving away and teenagers telling you to stand in line.

Whilst a marvel of its time, it's a bit tame now. I suppose something you have to do when in Seattle. The ground floor Guft Shop is rammed and uncomfortable

I thought it would be bigger, but it was when built in 60's. Great views of city, spots to get free selfie's e-mailed to you, and limited bar on top to enjoy a libation with the view. The virtual reality experience that's included in ticket...More
