Climb 520 feet to the observation deck of Seattle's signature building, which is actually 605 feet tall, for spectacular views of the city and its surrounding area. For food and fantastic sights check out SkyCity, the tower's rotating restaurant that makes one complete orbit per hour.

Yes you can get the best views from up here, but plan on waiting in line 45 minutes or more. The top is very small and crowded. Felt like I had to push my way through people to get a spot to take pictures. They...More

The customer service here was also great.. I lost my City Pass book while touring here and the Manager replaced mine with one that had been found earlier in the week. My entire family enjoyed this visit to view Seattle.

Expensive but fun. You've come to Seattle. Just do it. Eat at the restaurant. Pricey but saves money on the ticket.

While in Seattle it is "the thing to do" so do it! 30.00 it is pricey but hey, when in Rome. The views are decent even though it's really not that high. I think there are better things to do in Seattle so go thee,...More

Another must see in Seattle. One of those well known sights. We purchased the city pass which allowed both a day and night visit. It was a great view of the city and mountains. We didn't get a chance to go back for the night...More

The glass museum was actually spectacular as was the view from the space need, but don't buy tickets in advance as you still have to wait in line and it actually delays you b/c you can't use the kiosk. Also, do a blast pass so...More

What an amazing view but the cost is outrageous to just see the view of this amazing city. It's a shame to think of those who don't get to experience this due to the cost.

Offers great views of all of Seattle on a clear day. You can also see Mt. Rainier if it's clear. I recommend to book online and go early to avoid crowds, unless you are waiting for the air to clear more later in the day.

Long line/ wait, but the view and gorgeous sunset we saw from the top was absolutely worth it! Plan ahead!

This was my 3rd trip to Seattle and the first time I went up to the top of the Space Needle. My teenaged-son was the one who wanted to do this and I thank him for the suggestion; I should've done this sooner. The views...More

We plan to do Space Needle and Chihuly Gardens late Sunday afternoon/early evening in August - what are the chances the space needle will sell out? I don't really want to be pinned to a half-hour time slot but don't want to miss it either. There doesn't seem to be a way to buy combo ticket without committing to a half-hour time slot for the needle. Thoughts?

Just buy the ticket when you get there it will not sell out. Also, we were able to buy our Space Needle ticket and then bring it back within 24 hours to purchase the discounted Chihuly ticket. Finally, consider the CityPass... More
My family will be in Seattle for 1 1/2 days in August. The Space Needle is on our list of must-do's. Is it worth it to pay the extra $ for the VIP ticket? Thanks!

Just get normal tickets bought in advance. It's great. VIPs just get to skip some of the queue but it's not a big queue.
How long can you stay at the Observation level?

As long as you wish until it closes. When you are ready to descend one of the elevators will take you down.
