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.

This is something you simply have to do. The views are excellent and, when we went, the lines were short even though the day was fine and the sky clear. The highlight is the view of Mount Rainier. Make sure you pick a good day if you can.

Yes, the views from the space needle are great. But, if I didn't visit the space needle during my Seattle visit I wouldn't have been disappointed. There are so many other beautiful, fun places to visit and felt I really didn't get anything out of this experience.

With ticket you're able to use twice in the same day. I went once during the day and then went to see the sunset. It was nice.

This was a must do on our list of things to do in Seattle. The day was clear and Mt Ranier was beautiful as was the entire walk around. They have tables and a snack bar which was nice to sit and have a cup of coffee while u look out at the beautiful mountains and all the scenery. A... More

Went here the other day. Wasn't too busy but still has to queue up. Cost $23.10 for a general admission but there are other ticket types you can purchase. Stunning views to take in. The outside camera which takes as pic of you when you scan your ticket didn't work. You get a free digital pic that is emailed to... More
