Space Needle, Washington, United States

4.5 (19.5k reviews) Tuesday: 10:00 AM - 7:00 PM Spent 1-2 hours Ranking #3 in Seattle Points of Interest & Landmarks • Observation Decks & Towers

Fabulous evening, cant beat the view!

Located in the Lower Queen Anne neighborhood, this iconic landmark and observation tower was built for the 1962 World’s Fair. Perch on the glass benches known as “Skyrisers” and gaze out of floor-to-ceiling windows, snap a selfie at the outdoor deck, or head upstairs to The Loupe, an indoor lounge featuring the world’s first and only rotating glass floor. Here, you’ll be greeted with 360-degree views of the downtown Seattle skyline, Mount Rainier, Elliot Bay, and the Olympic and Cascade Mountains. For a smooth-sailing experience, it’s best to pre-purchase a timed ticket. Space Needle is also a part of CityPASS. – Tripadvisor

    Overpriced for what it is - Great views
    We purchased tickets at the Kiosk and arrived at 10am just as a large group of Cruise passengers arrived but only had to wait 5 minutes for the lift. Once at the top there was plenty of room to move around. We had really great views of the City and the photo spots around was a nice touch to have free downloads. I would say it's a bit pricey for what you get but its like any other Observation Deck so if your visiting I would recommend Skywalk Columbia instead to get photos of the Space Needle in them it's a lot quieter and a nicer option.

    Pricey touristy attraction
    I don't even remember the last time I was in the Space Needle. so when my brother and his family came to visit, we went together. It cost $29 (WA resident price) per person for the visit, so it is pricey but for someone visiting Seattle, it is probably a must do. We went on a Tuesday so it was not very busy. The renovation was definitely well done. It looks very bright inside with the glass walls, and the glass panels that lean outwards allows you to not only look out but down as well. The views are fantastic! The revolving floor is also well done but it is a little scary to stand on the glass floor panels! We went on a very chilly day so we didn't stay outside for too long. The free selfies at the top and the group photo before the elevator are a nice touch. The selfies we got were very dark, probably because it was almost sunset when we went. I hope they are better on a nice sunny day. The group photo is a bit cheesy as you can choose the background and it looks like you photo shopped yourself into pictures of places, which you technically did! The gift shop has some unusual items you can pick up, like a $5 make-while-you-wait machine mold of the Space Needle.
