Enjoyed the Space Needle with no waits in the morning. Evening line took 1 hour 5 minutes on a clear Friday night. We would have gotten in line earlier if we knew the wait was that long. Fabulous for day and night. There are extra photo kiosks in the gift shop if the line is too long at top. City... More

It was a very high building created earlier to provide visitors a view of the city from the top. However, during recent times there are higher skyscrappers have been built which provides better view of the city and at a cheeper price (viz. Skydeck at 73rd floor)

I had visited the Sky View Observatory a few days earlier but went up the Space Needle because my daughter wanted to see it. This is a very well-run attraction. Timed ticket purchased ahead of time on-line so we could go straight to the Elevator line. Nice exhibits along the waiting line area showing the history of the needle and... More

and enjoy the many historical morsels of knowledge presented at this exhibit. The history of the Space Needle wraps around the line que in a highly engaging way to pass the time and connect to the history happening around the country not just Seattle. Yes, the views from high above are jaw dropping and worth the experience but this History... More

Awesome views of the city from here. The elevator ride was a bit scary considering its a glass view. But it was really fun nonetheless, even if your like me and are scared of heights.

My friends and I enjoyed our visit to the Space Needle, but the highlight was having lunch at the Sky City restaurant. It's a little pricey ($25 per person minimum), but seeing the beautiful view while enjoying a relaxing conversation and good food was great decision!

The precision at how everything is organized is fantastic. The elevators take you up quite fast and then when you are on the deck inside, there is an electronic wall that shows where people have visited from. It is exciting to see all the different places. The food was good....oh yeah, the view. The view is amazing to see Seattle!

This landmark is a must see when in Seattle. It's views are amazing and I love that they have seating all around the viewing area inside where you can grab a cup of coffee and enjoy. I would love to go back and have lunch or dinner there. Unfortunately we didn't have time on this trip. Restaurant is pricey but... More
