  • Smithsonian Channel

    Once the tallest building west of the Mississippi, this tower isnt a marvel of height alone. Its elevators travel at 14 feet per second, the same speed that rain falls to earth. (From Aerial America)
  • Gordon Werner

    expensive, but worth the view
  • Danny Ngan

    Went to the top of the Space Needle on a sunny day and took tons of photos.

  • Mike SanSoucie

    View the city
  • matt westervelt

    If it's really windy, run around the observation deck. lean forward with hands in jacket pockets to float. Do not look in the windows.
  • Lauren R

    If you're used to big cities and skyscrapers this is a bit of a let down. Looking at it is cooler than the view from it...
  • Sameer Halai

    Go to the space needle restaurant (best time is just before twilight). Eat anything for dinner - nothing is specifically good - but don't forget to order dessert.
  • Kelly Robertson

    The views are amazing! be weary if you're afraid of heights!

  • Togan Gencoglu

    Don't wait in the line, use self check-in kiosk!!

    It may not be the tallest building, BUT it's pretty rad. It's got a great elevator you can look out of while you zoom up and hear facts about it. It's also got a rotating restaurant!

    Leave your purses at home hoes!

    Fun employees and it was a beautiful day to see Seattle from the top!
  • Bianca

    Instead of paying the pricy fee to go to top, enjoy it from below. Great picture op when sitting at the mural near the center house. More impressive than actual view from top.

    Go up to the top right before sunset on a clear day. that way you'll see the best sunset ever and get to see the city at night.
  • pinguino kolb

    blow bubbles from the top of the space needle
  • Andrea Buchanan

    Bring a coat and go to the restaurant. The ticket up is normally $ why not eat at the restaurant with a $25 minimum and a free ride up. Essentially, $6 lunch for a great lunch.
  • DoubleTree by Hilton

    Make sure you visit the Collections Caf in the Chihuly Garden and Glass Museum at the base of the Space Needle.

  • Justin Bonzai

    This is just the most over glorified fancy gift shop to ever exist (landmark) psshaw!
  • Monika Salita

    Views at sunset are spectacular, but come early or late if you want to avoid lines. Get a souvenir photo taken before you board the elevator, they're fun to look at upon returning to the ground floor.
  • Garth Knutson

    Ride to the top, and if you're feeling like a luxury, have dinner while you're there.
  • Sanjay Gupta

    It is a magnificent view, but I recommend bringing a sweater because it can get pretty windy up on top. In addition, if you want a snack, I recommend the clam chowder, which is homemade daily.
  • Nikki Cawley

    Take 360 video as you walk around the observation deck to make your friends from back home jealous!
  • Abhijeet Gaiha

    Awesome view from the top, day and night.
  • fausto munoz

    Try the duck ride while in the area.

  • Rob W

    One of the best spots in the city to pop the question!
  • Warin Krit

    $19 for adult for seeing the lovely 360 degree view of Seattle
  • veronique @ .

    From a distance, it looks like a flying saucer on a tripod, and when it was built for the 1962 World's Fair, the 605-foot-tall Space Needle was meant to suggest future architectural trends.
  • Brandon Lindstrom

    Pretty tall, but I didn't quite make it to space...
  • Laura Francescutti

    Pee first. If you have to pee at the top, use the YELLOW RESTROOM. And be nice to your Elevator Operators.
  • Michael Hudec

    Lines are long on weekends and cashiers lie about wait times!
  • Suga Jam

    Very easy to get to the top. But expect a long confusing line to get down.

  • Diana K

    Great place to go at sunset. Best way to see Seattle. You can also grab the monorail to/from downtown shopping area if you don't want to walk.
  • DJ Latin Prince ? ?

    If you come to Seattle and don't come here you are missing out!

    The Space Needle Skybeam shines skyward from the top of the tower on special occasions. It's powered by lamps that total 85 million candela that can be seen up to 30 miles away!

    This space needle is a space nightmare!!
  • Marc Montenegro

    Cool place to look at, but not worth the price

    A very unique building that was built for the World Expo. Great sights from the top and one of Seattle's landmarks
  • Victoria Harman

    At peak times, pay the extra $12 for a VIP ticket in the group tickets line. It's the only way to avoid the DisneyWorld style lines. Park in Pacific Place and pick up the Monorail at Westlake Center.
  • Emilio C

    It's not the best view in Seattle, but if you're only here for a little bit of time its worth doing.
  • L Giner

    Compren elotes abajo del edificio! Yum yum!
