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 ride its elevators every 24 hours. Now it’s your turn. Head to the admissions desk of the Space Needle to exchange this voucher for a timed ticket, then take a 41-second elevator ride to the top. From 520 feet above the ground on the Observation Deck, the views are 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. At the top, be sure to visit Seattle’s largest iPad – the Sky Pad. Use the giant touch screen to enter where you are visiting from and see how many people have visited from your home town! Displays provide further information about the sights and sounds of Seattle. Hungry? The revolving Sky City restaurant has the solution — brunch, lunch or dinner with a view.

It was awesome! I was late getting there and I booked a tour in between the times of 10am-7pm. I arrived nearly at 8 and a gentleman at the ticket counter said no problem, and put me in a line that was ready to go up. I was so thankful for that, because one minute, I was thinking that I lost my opportunity and the next available time was 9pm. I couldn't say that late so it worked out very well. Thank you for this wonderful experience. Definitely a major highlight of my vacation.

We visited the Space Needle during the off busy time and had a great visit. Our times to wait to go up or come back down were very acceptable. During the whole visit we did not feel overly crowded. Enjoyed the experience.

Great views, queue can be lengthy but I recommend either going first thing or going on the evening. We went on both so we could see the difference and there definitely was, really enjoyed ourselves and got plenty of souvenirs to take back to the UK for family and friends.

If you purchase viator deal, make sure to print your ticket or will have to stand in along line to get your tickets. Overall great experience, you can find parking couple blocks away from the needle and I would say that the best time to go up is after sun down.
