Seattle’s “must see” is now a “must do” following the Space Needle’s multimillion-dollar renovation. Glide onto The Loupe, the world’s first and only rotating glass floor, for never-before-seen views of the structure and the city. Lean into tilting...more

Enjoyed viewing the city from the Space Needle. A bit pricey, I wouldn't do it again. Reading the history provided was a plus.

On a sunny day the views of the Olympic Mountains and Mt Rainier were well worth the price of admission! Amazing that this landmark was build in 1962 for the World Fair. Great to watch the streets from above and wind our way around the...More

This iconic tower is symbolic of Seattle. I recall first seeing it during the World's Fair in the 1960's and it is still as impressive as ever. Prices to ride to the top have skyrocketed making it an event for a clear day

The view from the top was quite amazing. For anyone afraid of heights, there was plenty of other things to do while there, such as shopping, dining or just people watching.

Thankfully we were able to finally get to Seattle to tour this magnificent wonder! Being afraid of heights had me a little concerned but I found ways of avoiding walking on the glass floor and there were many walls to hug. The food being served...More

Tourist attractions are that for a reason! One year after its $100M upgrade, it was fully open for business. The construction history along the waiting line was informative and dramatic itself - amazing how fast it was built! but the upper levels have been redone,...More

I will start by saying that the views are amazing, especially from one floor below the top where you don’t have to stare through raindrops, fingerprints, and the rim of the structure itself. However, the process of getting there and getting back is horrendously frustrating....More

The needle itself is an imposing structure and is on the list of many tourists in Seattle. It was not crowded when we were there so we went right in and up. The view of the harbor and sound was breathtaking I’m glad I went,...More

A cloudy day, but still spectacular views. Don’t go if raining or foggy. The sight of the Museum of Pop Culture from above is very cool. The rotating glass floored lower level can leave you slightly dizzy.

We stayed at the Executive Inn only two blocks from the Space Needle. The street parking was not metered. There is a free bus that runs from the Space Needle to downtown and the waterfront.

There are only snacks at the top. The thought is there might never be a restaurant..... several reasons were mentioned, but traffic on the elevator was one. Another was there would have to be a base amount spent for a meal... More
