We were able to visit this place at night and in the morning before the crowds came. At night we waited 35 mins. and tix were sold out. Lucky for us we had a pre paid city pass and that's the best thing just in case there is a sellout of tix. Beautiful and windy when we went at night... More

The views from the observation deck through 360 degrees of the surrounding areas of Seattle can be appreciated even on a dull day. No sun the day we visited, but we still could get a very good indiation of the city.

This observatory is not super high. But it's an excellent height to see Seattle skyline. I like the history review of the construction process when we are in the line to the top of the Space Needle.

I was in Seattle attending a conference and at the end of my last day the clouds parted and the sun came out, so I took advantage and went to see the Space Needle. I walked down,it took about 25 minutes from my hotel. The adult fee is $22, but for an additional $15 you can bypass the line delay... More

We lucked out and it was a lovely spring day. Its not the most exciting thing in the world, but it is really neat and a must at least once. Beautiful views of course but also neat displays -- friendly and fun.

Greatly enjoyed lunch downstairs and was surprised how pleasant it was up on the main deck as well. Beer and wine are available along with light snacks. Also, it wasn't nearly as crowded as I would have expected.

If you have the time I recommend visiting the space needle in Seattle just because it's such a well known landmark. Great views of the city and the sound.
