A tourist must see and do while in the area , but the ticket also gave a discount for their restaurant below the viewing platform. Great views to soak in and absorb the city landscape.

Way over priced!! $18.90 (after tax) for adults. Valet is $15 for 4 hours. If you stay over 4 hours, the price doubles! Valet is $8 if you eat in their restaurant, but you will spend more in the restaurant than if you had just paid for the regular parking fee ($20 for a burger).
We weren't planning on going up because of the reviews and the price. However, our last day had AMAZING weather. It was sunny and clear and we thought it would be a great day, if there ever was one, to go up and see the city. Thankfully, it was a good view overlooking the city. But if the weather is not clear, don't bother going up, you won't see much and for what you're paying, it's even more of a waste of your money!
I know you probably associate Seattle with the Space Needle and you feel you just HAVE to go up if you're visiting. I would suggest Kerry Park for a lovely view of the city (and the needle will be IN your photos), Mt. Rainer included!
Also, keep in mind you will most likely wait at LEAST 30 minutes in line to go up. If money is but an object to you and you feel like blowing roughly $20 per person (sucks if you have a big party with you), then forget the review and just do it because it doesn't matter to you anyway ;)

For only $19 it was totally worth it. You get unlimited time and it's beautiful during the day. Would have liked to see it at night will all the lights but on a clear day it was great. Did not go to the restaurant, that pricing seemed pretty steep.

The admission to ride up to the top of the Space Needle is nearly $20 (it's $18 if you're an adult), but the skyline view you get of Seattle is lovely. It's also nice because you get the view of the water, the mountains, and downtown Seattle.Recommended for:Art & Design Lovers

Its the Centerpiece for the Seattle Skyline and its a must view. I am from NYC so it was just a normal skyscraper looking structure to me but you cant go to Seattle and NOT visit the Space Needle.
There is a pricey rotating restaurant in the Space needle as well but it is not on the main observation deck. It costs about $20-$30 to access this monument.

Great views! Not nearly as crowed or crazy an experience as I had feared. We had the City Pass which allows two trips in 24 hours so we picked a Sunset and morning visit. With the pass we were able to bypass the line and just go up the ramp for the elevator, went quickly. Once you are there you can spend as long as you want soaking up the views and enjoying the free telescopes. There are some nice interactive displays to explain some of what you were seeing. It was clear so we could see Mt Rainier and Mt Baker both days.

The Space Needle to Seattle is what Empire State building is to New York. You can't visit Seattle and not see it. The views from the top are amazing and rotating restaurant is very enjoyable way to spend time and money!
