Enjoy panoramic views of Seattle and the surrounding water from 184 m (605 ft) in the air at Space Needle. A symbol of the city since it was built for the World’s Fair in 1962, the tower features a 360º observation deck. Ride the elevator to the top for unobstructed views of the Olympic and Cascade Mountains, Elliott Bay, and the surrounding islands, before stopping for a meal at the rotating SkyCity restaurant. Take a jacket with you when visiting the tower, as the observation deck is known for windy conditions.

  • We enjoyed the visit but you still pay full price even though the full viewing platform is not open due to construction. On a clear day the views are very good. Staff are friendly and helpful. We went...  more »
  • We just had to go up in the Space Needle once during all our visits to Seattle. It is expensive and can get crowded. You need a clear day or it not worth the money and time.  more »
  • We went up here when construction was underway. We knew this when we went up and it didn’t bother us. Paying $22pp seems fine and justifiable if there isn’t construction and limited views but we felt ...  more »

  • I visited the Space Needle a while back but only has the time to do a review of it. I love the Space Needle. I think it is one of the sexiest structures being designed :p It is a must-see if you are visiting Seattle. The whole experience inside the Space Needle is unique, it outlines the history of the construction. Once at the top, the views from the observation deck is outstanding. It was extremely windy when I visited, photo taking was challenging.
  • What a ridiculously awesome experience this was! I visited just after visiting Chihuly first. Headed on up with no more than a 15 minute wait after purchasing my ticket. It gave me some time to stroll through the historical journey along the line. Once up there, I was told I was just in time for sunset. EXCITING! I waited, and waited, and realized that the cloud cover would make for a sunset-less experience. Regardless, I took some pretty awesome photos and enjoyed every minute up there. Go, enjoy, and don't forget the gift shop on the way out.
  • Overall, this is a really cool place to visit. The view of Seattle from atop is incredible! You're definitely getting your moneys worth out of visiting the Space Needle. The staff is kind and friendly. There isn't much to do here but look at views, but the views are great so it didn't bother me too much. Like I said, overall it's a good place. I would recommend it to anyone in the Seattle area. Definitely a once in a lifetime opportunity.
  • we were on vacation here in the summer of 2017. we had an amazing experience. however, it took a long time for us to get to the elevator to bring us up to the top of the needle, but the view was just gorgeous. and plus , a nice visitor commented and said that he liked the shirt I was wearing. and the restroom there was pretty rundown
  • I've been to the Space Needle twice, while traveling along the West Coast, and really enjoyed both visits. The Space Needle offers a great view of Seattle, as well as, the centerpiece to a downtown park with many things to see and do. The ticket price to go to the observation deck is not bad and definitely worth the experience. The elevators are on the outside with glass doors, allowing you to look outside as you are launched to the upper level. Highly recommend visiting the Space Needle, if you are passing through.
