This was the best alternate to space needle and history of the city is available in the viewing area, also great picture opportunity of space needle, ports, ballparks, the wheel and lake washington, Mt Ranier/Baker.

We really enjoyed the view.
It was a sunny day in Seattle and the view was exceptional.
Is worth the visit.

“Great views all around the entire 75th floor!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 20, 2013 via mobile

You pay $13 (vs $20 at the space needle) and can see from twice as high. You can visit for the rest of the day on the same ticket so try nighttime as well. I caught a Beautiful day and walked there from my hotel. Great views from all around. Puget sound, mercer island, mountains, a beautiful tree-line downtown, everything on a clear day. Very worth it

“Cheaper and taller than space needle!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 9, 2013

As above really, easy walk through downtown. Price is cheaper than paying to go up the space needle and the tower is TWICE as high so you can actually look down on the needle, plus everything else in Seattle with views across to the Olympics and the Cascades on a clear day. Money well spent :)

“Reasonable price - no queues”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 8, 2013

We walked up a few good hills to get here but was worth the walk. Good views and very reasonable cost. The staff at the top are helpful, and you can sit as long as you want. Whilst we also did the Space Needle for the been there done that factor this sky view had better views and was less crowded and much less expensive. If you like tall buildings and want to see the views worth a look.
