What a rip off this was! The 2 of us were charged $50 for 5 miserable minutes of our time. This attraction should be closed during Construction! I would say "partial closure" as stated on the "$2 discounted ticket" is an understatement. This should be...More

The Space Needle observatory deck is really underwhelming and overrated. The Needle itself isn't that tall so you don't really get a super amazing view of the city. Every time you try to take a photo, you get either people or the safety wires/nets in...More

We were told the construction would limit the views but we didn’t know how bad. They should really have closed the attraction instead of the $2 off ticket. Disappointed.

It was shame that it’s under construction and have very limited access open. The views are great of course but considering its ticket price it’s quite underwhelming - not much to do but walk around the half of the circle. Once the renovation is completed,...More

Cutting $3 off the price isn’t nearly enough during this renovation. While I enjoyed the hampered views, the experience was not worth $23. Skip it.

I'm glad I visited the Space Needle because it is an iconic Seattle experience. We visited in May and there were no lines. I think I enjoyed the photos and exhibits about the history and building of the Space Needle more than the observation tower....More

I was really looking forward to visiting the space needle but I was totally disappointed! We weren’t given the full extent of what was going on up there, just a faint ‘we’re doing some construction work’ It was literally like a builders yard, parts were...More
