SkyCity at the Space Needle is one of the most expensive restaurants in Seattle. The average entrée price is $44.93 —to spend this much on the ground, you’ll have to get a menu degustation at Rover’s or put on a tie and go to Canlis.
Visiting the needle for a view doesn’t require reservations .
General Space Needle tickets range in price from $24.50 to $37.50, depending on age, when you buy, and whether you are buying tickets for seniors or children. Tickets are available online, at the Space Needle itself and as part of a few different package deals, if you’re looking to get more bang for your buck.
The tower’s 520′ saucer-shaped “ top house” offers visitors Seattle’s only 360-degree indoor and outdoor panoramic views of downtown, Mount Rainier, Puget Sound, and the Cascades and Olympic mountain ranges.
allow at least 1 1/2 to two hours in Chihuly, and at least 1 1/2 for space needle.
1. Re: How long is the Space Needle tour? You can stay as long as you want because there is no tour. You are on you own.
Advanced booking with a ticket package is recommended (limited walk-up availability). Learn more and book here. Where can I find my free digital photo from my Space Needle visit?
No, they will not sell out ahead of time. However, if you buy the combined ticket with the Space Needle , you will need to purchase early in the day to get your preferred time. Otherwise, you can see Chihuly and may have to wait hours to go up into the space Needle .
Tove and I would both be the first to argue the view from the Space Needle is better during the day . The mountains, water, and greenery provide plenty of viewing pleasure when the sun is up. At night , you don’t get to enjoy any of the scenery that makes Seattle so unique (it just looks like black blobs at night ).
The Seattle CityPASS If you wanted to play tourist, this CityPASS is one of the things you can get to make it quickly through the lines and pay less than the regular admission price. For Seattle , the CityPASS is worth it if you do 2 or more of the 5 activities on the pass list.
Weekday evenings are also noticeably devoid of crowds. The Space Needle stays open until 11 p.m. Monday through Thursday, with visitor numbers decreasing around 5 p.m. Come any time between early evening and closing time when your elevator ride will be less full and the observation deck uncrowded.

It was not, however, the first time anyone had jumped for sport from the Space Needle . In 1975 there was an unauthorized jump by two base jumpers off of the Observation Deck. Both landed safely and were arrested.
Considered to be an icon of the city and the Pacific Northwest, it has been designated a Seattle landmark. Located in the Lower Queen Anne neighborhood, it was built in the Seattle Center for the 1962 World’s Fair, which drew over 2.3 million visitors.
