Space Needle in 60 Minutes

How to make the most of your visit in an hour with this efficient, action-packed itinerary: 

Getting here:

Take the Monorail, bus, or rideshare to the Space Needle to start your visit on a green note. Driving? We also offer valet. 

Prepare for Takeoff:

Purchase tickets in advance here to save time, or purchase a combo ticket to save on admission to both the Space Needle and Chihuly Garden and Glass. Your visit begins in the queue just outside the Space Needle where you’ll make your way inside past our “Building the Marvel” section. Don’t miss this chance to learn the history of the Needle! 

Your Good Side at Ground Level:

Before you head up the elevators, pose for your first free photo op, included with admission. 

On the Up and Up:

Enter one of three golden elevators and enjoy a guided ride to the top where you can enjoy two levels of thrills from an all-glass, rotating floor on the lower Loupe level to floor-to-ceiling glass on the upper level. Enjoy panoramic views and grab a snack or beverage at Atmos Café while soaking in the sights–or turn your visit into more than an hour by making a reservation at The Loupe Lounge: an exclusive cocktail & culinary experience atop the Space Needle featuring show stopping mixology and locally influenced food Towers to bring your night out to new heights.
