“We enjoyed ourselves”
Reviewed April 19, 2013

Our trip to Seattle to celebrate moms 84th birthday would be incomplete without a ride up the space needle!
We went before the sun went down in hopes of a sunset, but cold, windy, and wet conditions prevented seeing a sunset, so we watched the city lights come on instead.
An amazing view, just wished it was more wheelchair friendly: (less tall tables everywhere making it harder for a person in a wheelchair to get a great view too).
Next time we're in town (once every ten years) we'll have to spurge and try the rotating restaurant.

“Must see”
Reviewed April 18, 2013

We had lunch there. Based on other reviews was not sure about dining there, must I must say the food and service were very good. Do it on a day when the weather is good and the view will be spectacular!

“Expensive and not really worth it.”
Reviewed April 17, 2013

The elevator ride to the top is fun. The views are OK. It is far from the tallest structure in Seattle. Once is more than enough.

“Great views when the weather cooperates”
Reviewed April 16, 2013

Enjoyed the connecting monorail, the 360 degree view and the 1960's ambience.The monorail is great and takes you to the needle. Don't miss the glass sculpture garden at the base of the needle.

“Unbelievable views”
Reviewed April 15, 2013 via mobile

I spent the evening here to watch the sunset. It was amazing! There were some rain clouds in the distant and you could see where it was raining. I highly suggest you see it for yourself!!!
