New to Seattle, take the Monorail from downtown to the Needle. Wonderful views and interesting historical display.

Traveled here for Veteran's Day weekend. This was one of the main places I wanted to check out in Seattle. I was somewhat disappointed with the experience. There was a reasonable line to the top. Waiting in line wasn't bad, because they had a nice...More

We timed this visit just right. We arrived early and actually were able to see the fog rolling in. We were still able to view the downtown area and the community surrounding. There was part of the needle which was blocked off due to construction...More

The space needle gives you the 360 degree Ariel view of Seattle. You have to buy a ticket for US 25 + tax to go to the top. Worth paying that amount .

I didn't go up as lines were long and we were on our way home. I am sure it would be a great view on a sunny day. Lots of tourists so I would recommend going early or late

We went to visit Friday after thanksgiving and the place was not too full. Once you’re all the way at the top and go out for picture it’s freezing! Very windy and rainy. The restaurant was closed for remodeling so that was a bummer.

This is a must when visiting Seattle. We were really fortunate with the weather. It was completely clear and you could see for miles.

Was there in December 2017 and it was a rainy foggy day and half of it was closed due to construction.

The space needle provides a beautiful view over Seattle and it’s surrounds. For the price of admission however, you really don’t get very much. There is enough merchandise and direction to the gift shop for them to make money if that’s what they need

You really can't go to Seattle without visiting the Space Needle. The view from the top is wonderful and the screens that help you identify what you're looking at are very cool and helpful! I would highly recommend taking the trip up!
