What You Can Expect

Seattle Space Needle Observation Deck Admission

Go up 520 feet to the top!

The Space Needle is a landmark of the Pacific Northwest and an icon of downtown Seattle. It was built in the Seattle Center for the 1962 World's Fair. Today, nearly 20,000 people use its elevators every 24 hours. Your turn.
Head to “the Needle” and present this ticket, then take one of the elevators to the top. It only takes 40 seconds. Simple.
From 520 feet above the ground on the Observation Deck, the view is breathtaking. Check out the 360-degree panorama of Seattle and the surrounding area in all its glory — the beautiful downtown skyline; the distant Cascade and Olympic mountain ranges, including snow-capped Mt Rainier; the busy waterfront from Lake Union to Puget Sound. Take pictures in every direction and get a closer look with one of the Swarovski telescopes. Informational displays provide further information about the sights and sounds of Seattle.
Hungry? The revolving SkyCity restaurant has the solution — brunch, lunch or dinner with a view.

I took my sister and neice from Arizona and the day was great the weather was clear. Mount Ranier was even showing for awhile. They truly enjoyed the experience. It was nice to be able to go directly to the elevator as opposed to standing in line for tickets. Thanks!

You gotta go in the Space Needle. The views are beautiful. There are some interactive screens that point out some of the landmarks. A FREE picture too!

I loved the Space Needle and I would recommend it to other people to go. Some people tried to go get tickets but they were all sold out. I am glad we purchased our tickets through Viator. I hope to visit Seattle Washington again. Lots of places to check out and enjoyed Pike's Market.
