We went up during the day and they allow you to use your ticket again in 24 hours which is nice. You arrive at the top and you are in an open area and free to walk around at your leisure. The view is spectacular...More

I am typically afraid of heights but didn't want that to take away from my son's experience. I felt completely at ease up there. The floor was solid and the view was spectacular. It was a bit windy and the needle does sway a bit...More

I agree with many of the other reviews that it is a great view at the Space Needle. Yes it did have a bit of a sway to it with the wind increased. But it's the design for safety I think. We had 1 in...More

you do realize that larger structures have to have some "sway" in them to be structurally sound? i was up there last week, it was plenty windy and we were running around having a great time

Hi Ashley, In the past, I have been in much larger structures with astounding sway. If you read my review you will not find any comments regarding tower sway - just the facility itself. Glad you had a great time!
