This is a great way to get a beautiful view of Seattle, Washington! I recommend buying your tickets earlier on for a later time of the day, and take a walk and explore Seattle! A great view up at the top, with little snack cafes and seating inside. Get a free panoramic picture on the deck, and the view in... More

Too busy a place to visit! Had to wait 4 hours in order to get to the observation area. Just stayed at the bottom of the tower.

Best to take in on a sunny day, but in Seattle it's not always easy since it rains a lot. Very good views of Seattle from the space needle. There is a small fair with rides around the base of it. Gift shop and restaurant. Expensive not great food. Best to just go for the tower experience.

So that sounds bad, but don't get me wrong, it is a great way to get an awesome panoramic view of this gorgeous area. It just always looked so much bigger on tv and in the movies. It is also a $22 ticket just to go up the elevator to the observation deck. I spent about 15 minutes, but got... More

Seattle is such a beautiful city and the ability to enjoy it's beauty is enhance by a visit to the Needle. As you are entering, you get to read about the history of the Needle and all that went into the making of it. It's a definite must do and see.

An attraction this unique and representative of an area surely qualifies as a "can't miss." Yes, it's a little pricey, and yes it is generally swarmed with visitors, resulting in long wait times. But the view is great, and it's one of America's great defining icons. Just do it! One bit of advice: the crowds are always swarming, and they... More

To get the most from your visit decide what time of the day or night is best for you. We went up at sunset to get the most from the views to suit us. Pre booked the tickets from the UK which was easy to do and print out. The queues were not long but I understand they can be... More

A little pricey but not going to get that view from anywhere else in the city. Also quite interesting to learn about the history of its creation.

Pretty cool way to get a panoramic view of Seattle. Tickets were $22 which was a little pricey for an elevator ride but this is a must see as the icon of Seattle. The viewing deck has an indoor and outdoor area and both offer great viewing. It was raining but we still could see very well. You get a... More

I live in Seattle. We go and continue to go to the Space Needle. If you are a tourist it is worth a visit. Seattle Center has a lot of local color. Enjoy!
