Was concerned about the wait time, everyone said it would be long, but arrived early afternoon and walked right in. It was a gorgeous day and the views were amazing. The only reason I didn’t give 5 stars is there were no placards saying what...More

The needle gives you panoramic view of the city. There is also a cafe and bar at place, and down stairs there have a free 3d jump from the needle experience (which was not that good)

Bought our tickets online and had no problems. Lined up at the selected time and walked in. Wait was not too bad to get the elevator to the top. A little crowded, but made the best of it. Took our time and got our pictures....More

The only reason I did not give this an "excellent" review is becauase we did not try any drinks and/or food, as we were going to dinner later. That said, the views were spectacular ..alllll the way around.

We were here almost 40 years ago and almost didn't return. We are glad we did. I was another great experience on our return trip.

Although this is not the tallest building in Seattle now, recently renovated and added glass benches on the top floor and a separate revolving glass floor with a restaurant is a great experience to view whole city as this passes by

My wife and I enjoyed lunch at the rotating restaurant at the top. We watched the ever-changing Seattle scenery while eating very well-prepared meals.

Gorgeous view at night (and I'm sure in the day, as well) - the renovations they've done are outstanding. I can't wait for the next visit when the restaurant is opened again.

The Space Needle is apparently 1 or 3 types of observations towers, or so I was told. Was nice, 35$ to go up. Iconic destination to see of course.
