The symbol of Seattle and one of the most noticeable structures on the Seattle cityscape is the Space Needle. Designed by 2 architects and built for the 1962 World Fair, the structure stands proud and has been drawing visitors in large numbers from the day it was opened. It's a less than a minute ride to the top in an elevator. The thing that draws them is the view they get from the observation deck of the Space Deck. The breathtaking view of the surrounding mountains and islands has left a lasting impression on many.
The observation deck has interactive SkySchool for children. There will be a lot of picture perfect moments here and to maintain it on days when the weather isn't perfect, they have a large screen set up that will simulate the perfect weather and you can have your perfect shot and mail it right from the deck!
Not just that but the SkyCity Restaurant and bar serves up delicious eats that are reasonably priced. The best part of the dining experience is the rotating deck so you get a true 360 degree view of the beauty of Seattle and beyond as you enjoy your delicious meals. It is a learning experience that the marvels of science have brought together for the young and the old.

Nice view of Seattle downtown and city from their deck. I would suggest either go early in morning and late evening to spend good quality time with your loved ones. Avoid the sunshine on the top. Also take advantage of going there twice because you can use the same ticket twice if you bought the Seattle city pass. You can watch sunset the previous day if you are in town. Good place to be with kids as well. Be careful of the moving and rotating top.
Even though this iconic observatory deck was on a renovation undergoing during the time visited. However the spectacular 360 degree view of Seattle worth it all. Choose sunny day before sunset time over weekdays are best options to go. It won’t be too crowded, and the sunlight may remind you many movies that once used Space Needle as film location, for an example, Sleepless in Seattle. Or just do nothing and sit to enjoy the incredible breathtaking view, best moment in lifetime experience.
Breath taking views across Washington. The elevator ride up was fairly slow and not scary. The main deck was under construction, so we couldn't eat dinner at the restaurant which is very unfortunate. Wouldn't do it more than once though, price is very expensive
Fun place to chill out. The view from top is great. I would recommend going just before sunset so that you get the view of daytime and nighttime. They have a cafe and bar up on the needle. Nice place to hang out with friends or family. The recently renovated and it definitely is a much better than it was a couple of years back. Do visit the rotating deck with glass floor - you can just sit at one place and get 360 deg view in an hour.
We had an amazing experience at the space needle.! This is kind of a long review but worth reading! My best friend and I were visiting for a doctors appointment at the Children’s Hospital for my autistic son . My friend also has an autistic daughter, we were all just sightseeing as we are both single mothers and could not afford much so thought we would go and at least look in the gift shop at the space needle as it was free. To our surprise a kind sweet generous security guard asked us if we had been up to the top of the building ,.. to which my friend replied no we can’t afford that .. he was shocked and gathered all of us around and said now you are with me you were coming with me come right now! He took us up to the elevators and told everyone that we were with him and guided us to the top of the space needle made sure that we got our pictures taken before going up the elevators. And the whole time he was just so very nice and kind! This man was not having it that we were not able to have the opportunity to go up to the top of the space needle and see what everyone else was seeing.! He made our night !!!! and our kids were so excited! A wonderful random act of kindness that we will never forget! We did happen to catch his name and it was Solomon. So thank you very much Salomon you will not be forgotten for what you have given our family !! We continued to talk about Solomon all the way back home on a six hour plus journey and will continue to talk about his kindness for a long time!
