Like nothing I’d ever been to before. The second you open the door it’s so windy you feel like your going to blow away. We visited at night which I highly recommend, you can see all of Seattle lit up. The elevator going all the...More

It waa raining so it was not as easy to see the beautiful view. It was crowded but lines moved quickly. The restaurant is gone and that was disappointing.

It was a very nice experience, but a bit overpriced. The view in the night was fantastic. Must go if you are visiting Seattle.

I loved the space Needle the views were awesome, I personally did not walk out on the clear glass but you can! You can sit and have drinks you can stay as long as you like, a must see in my book.

Going up here was one of the highlights to our USA Trip.. awesome views across Seattle and the Sound. I'm scared of heights so couldn't do the glass floor on the lower level, but just about managed the main level.

Decent views of the city but way overpriced! 32 dollars for the view is way too much in my opinion. Also, avoid if you are scared of heights (the fact that there are no floors, will make it a terrible experience for you!)

Unfortunately we couldn't get in due to the renovation, but at the entrance they informed us, that they build a space lift :) It's an iconic attraction of Seattle, it was nice to visit this place even we could check it only from outside.

Get the city pass so that you can go in the morning and evening. They views are great. The revolving floor was excellent. There are other activities in the area so you could spend at least 3 hours there.

Hard to answer this. As others have noted beautiful both day and night. If you want a great day view of seattle, I would go to the observation floor on top of the Columbia tower (73rdfloor), much higher than the space... More
