When my sister came to visit me, I bought the Seattle City Pass. You can use the pass to go up in the morning and again in the evening. Plan to do things near the Space Needle if you want to go up in th evening. Also go when it's sunny day. Great souvenir shop downstairs.

We had a great time. We had no wait to the top. First, we got to take a picture. You really get a free picture. The views are sensational. We got to see Mt. Rainier which was incredible. The views are great. We went around sunset which was really cool. It is awesome you can stay inside a heated area... More

Great view but it was rainy and windy. Nice interactive screens help you figure out what you are looking at and the application to load your picture and place of origin is cool.

We felt the Space Needle part of Seattle's history dating back to '62 and on a list of sights to be seen, experience. Interestingly, we had a clear day with sun on one side, and a hazy day on downtown side of the City! In any case, the four of us enjoyed the view. The gift shop was also worth... More

We went there just before sunset so we still got to see the view in daylight and as we ate it got darker and when we left it was completely dark and all the lights were simply outstanding! It was the most expensive 3 course dinner I've ever had, but it was certainly worth it! Amazing food, amazing staff and... More

I have been more times than I can count and the view never gets old. Even on rainy days, the Space Needle is a great place to visit.

We absolutely loved our experience at the space needle. Make sure you buy tickets online as they are significantly cheaper and you have to select an arrival time, so booking online ensures your preferred time doesn't sell out. The views were amazing and the elevator ride was fun. Just be prepared for some serious wind up there!

It's great to look at from the outside but the trip up to the top costs about as much as it would to feed 2 adults. Go to the Gerri's wheel by the ferry if you want to go up that high and just appreciate the needle from the ground

We picked a night with good weather and made reservations for sunset at the revolving restaurant. Views were spectaular. Dinner was very good, waiter was also good. The bill however was not cheap. $110 per person for a meal with drinks. If you want to do this on "the cheap". Just pay the $20 for the elevator ride and get... More
