I went on a cold December Monday so luckily it wasn't crowded at all and there was no wait to get to the top. We were hungry and the spinning restaurant is really expensive, but there is a much cheaper cafe on the top floor that had passable food-sandwiches and bagels, along with coffee and beer/wine. The view of course... More

Knew we had to do the Space Needle; quiet ride up on the elevator; hardly know its moving; being there in December; a little cloudy, but an experience you dont want to miss; still able to see much of the area; and a good place to sit and have a drink in the restaurant.Such a landmark

Also very cool to see from the ground floor. At the very least, I recommend tourists visiting and seeing it from the ground floor. This one is pretty much a tourist must. If you can afford it, the trip to the top is very neat and a cool view of Seattle.

Not too impressed. Great view but food, prices and overall value was not there. Only once and that's it.

Yes, I agree this is a must see, but I admit I felt a little ripped off buying a ticket and going up and not being able to see anything. It literally was rainy and cloudy and visibility was poor. Now I am not blaming anyone but myself for deciding to pay and go up and I am still glad... More

If I recall correctly the CN tower in Toronto was around $70 so $22 US for the Space Needle was a steal of a deal!! Not only that, the photo(s) were free. You get a "green screen" photo while in line and then at the top on the outside viewing platform there is an automated selfie station where you scan... More

This place is a true celebration of Seattle. 360 degree views - indoors and out. Perfectly designed so that the outdoor view is below the indoor view. Up 500 feet, where you are above virtually everything, you have a great view in every direction. Might be very disappointing if there are low clouds. Drinks at the top are reasonable. Stopped...

We visited the Space Needle on a Saturday at about 3:30 pm. My party consisted of my daughter age 14, my son age 11, my niece age 18 and my brother. I purchased the Chihuly Glass Museum/Space Needle package in advance on line. This package totaled around $174 for the five of us. (4 adults and 1 child for reference).... More

Made reservations for Sunday brunch and was able to wait once at the restaurant for a table by the window - highly recommend! The kiddos received stickys from the waiter and were able to place on the window next to the table and watch for it to come back around. It was a beautiful and sunny Seattle day. It's a... More

We were lucky enough to enjoy a sunny December afternoon at the top of the space needle and the sunset was spectacular! The perfect place else for breathtaking views of Seattle.
