Space Needle - Review
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.

Space Needle, Seattle Reviews
Iconic. Still graceful after 56 years. Worth the price just to ride the elevator up to spectacular 360 degree views. The rotating glass floor, which will be part of the restaurant, is amazing. The staircase between the observation and restaurant decks is cool. The remodel is stated to be 95% complete, but the missing 5% is very apparent as the restaurant is noticeably absent, and definitely needed, to complete the Needle experience. The gift shop at the bottom extends around the base and offers a large variety of Space Needle items that are nice but generally pricey. I was a kid the last time I went to the top of the Needle and the new, updated version is worth experiencing. When the restaurant is open and the small detail work is completed, this will be a 5 star experience.
The most amazing views can be found at the top of the Space Needle in Seattle! On one side you can see the Seattle City skyline and from the other, the beautiful Puget Sound. We went at Sunset and it was absolutely breathtaking! I loved watching the Ferry's traveling through the water. There are glass benches that are leaning slightly back and give the illusion you're sitting over the city! On the 3rd floor down from the observation deck, there is a rotating glass observation floor, the kids loved it!
Amazing views of the city. Went late afternoon and stayed until the city got dark - simply breathtaking! We were there while a special event was going on so the wait for the elevator was longer as they designate one elevator to the special event guests and one of the other elevators wasn’t in service (eek!). Revolving glass floor was a fun experience. Solid building and construction. Wish the restaurant was open...thought summer of 2018 (we’re here and it’s almost the autumnal equinox) was the time but according to Staff, it’s still unknown when that will happen.
Not sure it's worth the price if you have been to similar attractions in other cities, but it's a great view and exciting. Enjoyed walking around outside as well as inside. Inside actually had better views and cleaner glass to take pics through. Got very busy from 10:30 am. I'm sure sunset would be awesome from it. Was easy to buy tickets at self serve kiosk
The preeminent icon of Seattle, and newly remodeled, the Space Needle is a fantastic attraction for tourists and locals alike. I was lucky to come after the restaurant level (which now has a stunning glass floor) had been completed, but before they had installed the tables and fixtures for the restaurant itself. It was awesome! I will admit that it would be terrifying for those who are afraid of heights, but it was an excellent view of Seattle and particularly of the many attractions that Seattle Center has to offer. The facade, entryway, gift shop, and integration with the monorail have all been tastefully redone in a semi-futuristic style with the heart of the original design in mind. Depending on how you plan your night, this is a great stop for kids or date nights. I'm looking forward to coming back during daylight hours!
