The historical information and photographs of the history and construction of the Space Needle was as interesting as the amazing views from the top. Well worth it.

Consider that I haven't been up there in many years (TA only allows a year back, so be advised) but the two times I ate there I noted that the view is great, rotating slowly to allow a 360 degree view of the Emerald City. The food as I recall was pricey for what you get. The fee just to... More

Back of the Needle for the first time in years because of visitors from Africa. And you know what? On a sunny afternoon, even when cold, it is terrific! Almost overwhelming to see how many new highrises in SLU and downtown during the last 3 years, as well as what's going on in Eastlake and the U District. Great views... More

Go visit Seattle's most iconic landmark, take the time and ride the elevator to the top and take in the view.

I'm sure it had its day in the 60's and they have made their money many times over since then, it was criminal to charge almost a hundred bucks for a family of four, then have the audacity to drop you off in their gift shop on the elevator ride down, what is this Disneyland? At least the ride a... More

Nothing special. The admission is expensive. If the weather is bad and viewing is not optimal, no one will tell you when you are purchasing your tickets. They really should be honest. The restaurant is OK, but if you go during the off hours, there's really not much to do.
