Great experience and even if you do not like heights you will easily settle once on board. Exhilarating experience you just have to do in Seattle

Newly refurbed this is a great place to see the skyline of the city. Regrettably the restaurant was still closed for completion, that was not obvious when you buy tickets!! Bit cheeky but there is a small cafe at the top. Quite an experience.

It's currently under construction. The website for the space needle indicated they would announce additional dining options as they evolve.
