Great views as expected. Glad I went when I did since I hear they are thinking of changing the floor so you can see all the way down (not sure if true - but I prefer solid ground). A bit of line to get in...More

We did not get here on our first visit to Seattle so this time it was a must. Great view from the places we could go. Construction blocked part of the observation deck and the view to the bottom. Good time of the year to...More

We visited the Space Needle on the first evening we were in Seattle. Lots of interesting history and great view from the top. Going at night meant no lines. I don't think I would have waited in line for the view.

We had to do it once. Great view but it is under construction. Great time of the year to go. No lines or crowds on a warm Sunday in December.

I loved the lights at night. There is a neat park & a talented band was playing close to the doors to enter the space needle.

We timed this visit just right. We arrived early and actually were able to see the fog rolling in. We were still able to view the downtown area and the community surrounding. There was part of the needle which was blocked off due to construction...More

The space needle gives you the 360 degree Ariel view of Seattle. You have to buy a ticket for US 25 + tax to go to the top. Worth paying that amount .
