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.

Wonderful place to get visited in sunny days. It has spectacular views of Seattle, Puget sound, and Mt. Rainier (if you are lucky enough). While you are in line to get up there you will be able to read a lot of related historical information. Very interesting. The panoramic view is stunning. If you want they will make a photo before you enter the elevator and you can see it up there on special terminals and share it. Be aware the lines for going down are not shorter than ones to go up. After visit you will go down right to the gift shop that is not bad actually.
The space needle is a must see for anyone who plans to or visit the Seattle area. There are other things to do right within the building as well as outside for people of all ages. It is open from early in the morning all the way till midnight pretty much every day. As far as my experience goes it was well beyond what I expected and better than my experience at the Empire State building in New York City. Is well worth the money to be spent going here, promise you that she will love it and want to come back again if you're in the area.
Absolute Must see for Visiting to Seattle. The restaurant is fabulous it spins around and gives a fantastic view. It was an incredible breakfast! It was a full 3 course meal. Service was great. You could feel the sway that day we were up there. I would highly recommend to visiting parties!
We used City Pass to visit The Space Needle while in Seattle, WA. And it was amazing! The staff at The Space Needle was fantastic and very helpful. The employee who took us up in the elevator, was pretty funny too and had some quick, fun facts for us. Of course there is a line...it's The Space Needle. If you don't want to wait, buy the blast pass, or whatever it's called. The wait was like 35-45 minutes for our 10 AM time. It was well worth it.
If you're touring Seattle, this is a must-see!! The price to ride up the elevator to the observation deck is a bit much, but it's well worth it to get the best view of the city! If you get the city pass then you can ride up to the observation deck one time during the day and one time during the night. You should experience both! I love going up to the observation deck when the sun has gone down and the city lights up. It's spectacular! They do cram the elevators pretty tightly, so if you're claustrophobic like me be prepared for that! I made a comment about how packed the elevator was to the attendant who loaded the elevator and she got kind of stand-offish. Maybe they're supposed to cram the elevator that tightly? I just feel like if I'm paying $20 for an elevator ride that I shouldn't have to have my nose in somebody else's armpit from being so close to them.
