There is a beautiful panoramic view from the observation deck in this tower of the Seattle city skyline, mountains and surrounding islands. This view is a must-see during the daytime. I have been for the New Year's Eve fireworks show also.

To be honest, I only expected to go to the top of the Space Needle, look out over Seattle and return to the ground. The interactive options inside the Space Needle however had me at the top for much longer than I had anticipated. And I'm glad. Included in the ticket price was a photo that was taken on the...

We decided to head out for some teambuilding while we were on a training session in Seattle. One of the first places we stopped was the space needle. Once we figured out how to get to the top it was beautiful and stunning views of the entire city. It was breathtaking to see all the sites and boats and lights.... More

Since its an icon for the Seattle area, had to see it. It was okay, not impressed. It was quite expensive for just a ride up and the view of city. I'd rather pay to be on the Las Vegas stratosphere since they have the big shot, more worth the money I would say.

I will start off by saying I am terrified of heights, but regardless had a great time. I stayed towards the inner portion of the space needle where they had quite a interactive things to do, like read facts, see how far people had to travel to get there or look at a bunch of neat pictures etc. There is...

I liked the ride in the elevator where we saw the city getting smaller as we go up to reach the observation deck. Also, I liked that (unlike other places / landmarks) there is a free photo that can be emailed to you. However, Overall Price was too much (almost $35) it should be less than that. Also, souvenir shop... More

When you hear Seattle, you picture Space Needle. Despite of it's historic and iconic value of the city of Seattle, there is not much going on up there. The lookout deck is caged completely which means it's almost impossible to take good landscape pictures without including the rails. Since Seattle is pretty much always cold, your visits will most likely... More
