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.

A must see spot and we enjoyed the wonderful views. It gets crowded at the top so take your time and be ready to spend some time at the top to really enjoy the views. We were there at sunset and it was spectacular.

Beautiful view of Seattle. The only problem we had that we made reservations for Sunday before ten and after seven. When we got there, they told us we could not go to observation deck until 9:30. We complained because we had made the reservations on Saturday morning. A supervisor came over and changed the time to 7 for which we were grateful.

Was a little disappointed that we still had to come back for a time slot. Would have expected a pre paid voucher would give immediate access. Having said that it was an amazing view and well worth it.

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.
