Great views from the top across the bay and lovely city. At the base of the needle there is a nice gift shop. We went about 4:30-5 - there were large queues, but it was worth the wait. I would perhaps go earlier in the...More

If you come to Seattle you have to visit the needle right? We did twice. Once in the day and returned with the same ticket in the evening. We bought a multi ticket that included the needle, the museum of pop culture. chihuly gardens, the...More

I was not impressed with the cashier at the gift shop. I had a bunch of things that I wanted to buy but I guess I went over my limit of things they allow you to buy. I had assumed that she had rung everything...More

I'm not keen on heights but enjoyed the views after I got over my initial fear. It's touristy but worth it. There was no wait (noon, mid-August) in peak season. However, view was limited due to forest fires. Unfortunately, we didn't see Mt. Rainier which...More

Although we didn’t venture to the top this time (no tickets were available for the next 2 hours, and visibility was poor), we spent some time strolling around the park at the base. The MoPop Museum is next door, there are plenty of food and...More

The renovation looks nice but I was never there before so I had nothing to compare it to. It will be nice when the restaurant opens but you can still see the rotating glass floor where it will be to take pictures. It is a...More

Definitely should see while in Seattle. Just expect long lines and lots of people. Beautiful views. They are still working on the space needle so it’s not all accessible.

Would have been five stars except there was a really rude employee on the VR bungee jump. Who was rather sarcastic and condescending when asking the members of public to sign on the waiting list- I get he must have people coming up to him...More

If you’re going sightseeing in Seattle the Space Needle is probably on your list. The question is if it’s worth the time and money to go to the top. My experience is that you should do it at least once. It’s not cheap and you...More
