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.

The day was overcast when we went, but we still were able to see the surrounding area and take photos. Very interesting to see the timeline of the structure also.

A little pricey for just a ride to the top for taking photos, but the view was good on a cloudless day. The better deal is to buy the combo ticket with the Chihuly Museum, however t it was closed early for a private function...More

Yes, it's a huge tourist attraction and there will be crowds, but the view is amazing! We ate at the Sky City Restaurant, which included a free pass to the observation deck, and had a lovely experience.

Beautiful veiws, but go early if you didn't buy your tickets on line you will get a ticket with a time you go up. This is something you plan ahead, great big gift shop!

We enjoyed being able to see Seattle "in the round". The weather was nice, so we could be out on the observation deck. There are also tables inside where you can sit as you look around!

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.
