Great views of Seattle during the day including the Space Needle and Mt Rainier. Good value for money and we were able to return the same day - they stamp your hand, so we revisited the same day at sunset which was amazing.

It was worth going out of our way to visit the Sky View Observatory. Reasonably priced entry and great views all round. Interesting information also displayed on the walls.

The 360 degree view from the 73rd floor overlooking Seattle is amazing! You can look down on Space Needle, all of the downtown and suburbs of the city, see the surrounding countryside and volcanoes, and get a good sense of the geography of the region....More

Prices very reasonable compared to other attractions with views and this way you get the Space Needle in your pictures! We were very lucky and had a beautiful clear day so we could see all everything - all the islands, Mt. Baker, Mt. Ranier.

The tallest building in Seattle certainly provides the best views of the city. Amazing 360 -degree views of the Space Needle, carousel, Mt. Rainer, the islands (and the traffic). What's nice is that it's enclosed, so you're protected from inclement weather. Highly recommend!

Best views in Seattle are had here, you can walk around the 360 degree observatory and for the entrance price you can go back again when it is dark. Amazing views.

Went up both this tower and the Space Needle and found this one less crowded, and the views amazing and better than the ones on the Space Needle. There are descriptions of what you see below the windows and some general info on the building...More

Enjoyed the panoramic view of Seattle and outlying mountains and islands. Very helpful posters identifying the mountain ranges, islands as well as Information about the building.

The Sky View Observatory is higher than the Space Needle, cheaper, easy enough to access and provides 360 degree views over Seattle, you can even see Boeing Field, both football stadiums, I could go on but basically all of Seattle and surrounding area. Added bonus...More

We were using public transport while in Seattle so unfortunately I'm unable to answer your question.
