It's great to look at from the outside but the trip up to the top costs about as much as it would to feed 2 adults. Go to the Gerri's wheel by the ferry if you want to go up that high and just appreciate the needle from the ground

We picked a night with good weather and made reservations for sunset at the revolving restaurant. Views were spectaular. Dinner was very good, waiter was also good. The bill however was not cheap. $110 per person for a meal with drinks. If you want to do this on "the cheap". Just pay the $20 for the elevator ride and get... More

Its a total package of experience, taking a monorail from a downtown mall and reaching here, going up the space needle and exhibitions surrounding it. . We got caught in thanksgiving holiday rush and at 5pm the earliest slot available was 8pm. pretty long wait - so had to call off.

How could you miss it. It's the symbol of Seattle. The 600ft tower, with the UFO lookalike on top, will give you a nice skyline of all of Seattle.

Superb place to view the city AND the surrounding area...just pick a clear day! Arrive early and get your tickets before opening time. Built in the early 1960's...the music playing at the top of the tower is from the era...so you'll see lots of people of a certain age mouthing those never-forgotten words to all the songs...brilliant touch! The views... More

One of those things you must try once. Food was just okay at best, service was great and the view of course was excellent.

We loved the view from the space needle. We were a little taken back by the price and the parking. The price was $22 for adults and $14 for a child. The parking was over $25 so we went driving around and found street parking for several hours for under $8. We only spent about 45 minutes up on the... More

On a clear day the view from the top of the Needle is remarkable. Great for tourists, locals who have not been there yet, romantics and romantic moments. Skip the restaurant, I feel that it's over priced, Seattle has some incredible eateries for all budget and taste. The 'obligatory' museum store is there at the base. You must a have... More

This is a fun way to spend 20-30 minutes on a clear day. The views are great, and there are some interactive activities for the kids or adults. It does seem overpriced for the amount of time you will probably stay, but it just seems like something you have to do when you go to Seattle.
