Been up a few other towers so had to do this in Seattle. Pleasant elevator ride up, it wasn't very busy which was great! The price was reasonable compared to other such activities $20 a person. The views are nice, there's a restaurant and bathrooms at the top. It was raining but we did walk around the outside rim to... More

One of the highlights of our West Coast Tour, booked in advance, they contacted us so I could notify them of our celebration, looked after well all the way through. Food very nice, service excellent (thank you Brenda). Even though it had been a rainy and miserable day weather wise our decision to book our meal for 4.30 pre-dusk paid... More

The food was overpriced for what it was i also left my camera there and when we phoned up the next day it had gone which was very strange as it seems the staff can not be trusted

We thouroughly enjoyed our lunch at the top of the space needle. You get great pictures and can take your time. Stop in the shop for a great selection of keepsakes and don't forget to look at the clearenced items for great deals.

One of my secret travel wishes came true. It was everything I could have wished for. Well, if only the weather would have been better. I was looking forward to see the snowy mountains and especially Mt. Rainier, but clouds covered all that mighty. Nevertheless, while for some it might be just an ordinary view point, it was a tremendous... More

I had visited the Space Needle in 2005 and was impressed but today it seemed better. Grounds around were in fabulous condition and with the addition of the Chihuly Garden and Glass it just made the whole experience better. Monorail from Westlake Shopping Precinct was inexpensive, clean and efficient drops you right at the entrance. Definitely worth a second visit.

My husband took me to the top for my 50th before heading to dinner. He timed it so we could see the sun set but it's Seattle and with the clouds we didn't quite see the sun set but we caught the views as it was getting dark and it was absolutely stunning and beautiful. If you are in Seattle... More
