This is another Seattle tourist thing, that you just have to do! Actually, I was impressed with the organization for taking the elevator up. It was not nearly the line and hassle that I experienced in Chicago. I loved looking at the history while waiting in line and the view really was great!

Having being atop many of the big buildings in other states like Empire, Rockerfeller, Reunion Tower, so on so forth this building does not quite reach the same heights but what it lacks in height it gains in design. Unique design and outward looking lift is cool and whilst queuing reading how it was built is very interesting and photograph... More

Ok yea this is a great attraction so you can get phenomenal views of gorgeous Seattle, but the real reason it's amazing is because of the killer hot dogs you can get!!! I had a dog with cream cheese and cranberries...it was so great! Be prepared to stand in line for quite some time to get in but it's worth... More

We visited the Space Needle a couple of weeks ago. Although it was drizzling off and on and very windy, we thoroughly enjoyed the views and the historical information. We wished that we had been able to eat at the restaurant during our visit.

The Space Needle provides lovely views of an amazing city. The staff are helpful and friendly in the gift shop and the restaurant! The food is also very good, although a bit pricey! Be sure to take your camera up with you and get some postcard worthy shots!!!

This was on my bucket list of must-dos for our first trip to Seattle. Views from the top were unbelievable. We purchased our tickets online before arriving and was able to select our time to go up. Gorgeous day

My friends and enjoyed our visit to the Space Needle. I don't think any visitors to the city would care to miss it. I was worried about the ascent, but it was smooth and quick. Surprise! I was pleased there were places to sit and look out. Also, you could walk the entire area around in a circle. What a... More
